Hints - Stainless Steel Dash Replacement
 
My girlfriend decided to copy me and go for a stainless steel dash in her Jeep. What I learned from doing mine is that if you leave the steering column in place, it scratches up the column pretty good when you start moving the dash around. So, to avoid this, hanging the dash is a pretty good idea.
 
 
Suspending the dash from the ceiling is what we decided to do. This made the whole job that much easier. The steering column was removed as was the power steering shaft and then the dash was hung from the ceiling and put in place right where it was going to be.
 
 
This made the installation of the wires and cables so much easier. The gauges were put in place ahead of time and then the installation of the wires began. I can't think of an easier hint to do as you go to put your new dash in. Don't be in a hurry or else you will cause yourself a huge headache.

NOTE: A nice touch is to reuse the dash glove box in the original color so it really offsets the look of the dash.
