yea i already have everything else in except grab handles and door panels. Trying to get everythig done by the weekend. Newspaper is a good idea i was just thinking Saran Wrap could wrap around the whole thing and it would stay down better

Dragonii The boot?
07-22-2014 10:31 PM
Justin0624 I finally got the dash off! It was the two bolts on the inside top of the airbag that wouldnt let the dash come out but i finally got it. Hopefully putting it back together wont take near as long. Where can i find a forum that shows how to take the boot off?
07-22-2014 10:03 PM
Dragonii The long strip at the bottom of the windshield just pops off. Start at one end, use a flat object to pry up on it gently. Then work your way to the other end.

Piece above glove box where the grab handle is.... two 10mm nuts on the back side. Deep socket and a finger ratchet (Harbor Freight has em for like $5) works great but you'll need a combination wrench to break them loose.

Jasoncwrd Take a pic of the part your talking about. And for the air bag cover there are two bolts inside of it that take a lot of sweat, cursing and pure luck to get too. And a lot of bending of wrist and fingers

Justin0624 How do you take the airbag cover out?

Are you taking about the long thin panel that runs next to the windshield? If so just slide a flathead near the corner towards the front of the dash and gently pry it up. Then slide your fingers across the front. It will pop right up. I'm sure you can look up a how to on changing your head unit and there will be pictures too.

Use something the wedge between the crank handle and door panel to make a small gap. You'll see a small metal ring clip in there. Grad it with some needle nose or a wire coathanger hook and pull it loose. The handle will then come off. Remove all the screws that you can find in the panel and then use a pry tool to pop it loose. It is held on with those black snaps that I pictured back in the begining of the thread. All the needed info should be there if you just start from the begining.

As for the other piece, please be a little more specific.

Dragonii I second the Bestop seat covers. Water proof and they are tough.
First covers I bought were neoprene. After 9 months they had snags in them and turned from black and red to grey and pink. So I bought the Bestop covers. Still black (you can easily apply protectant just like you do a soft top) and as waterproof as they can come. My dogs walk on them, nieces and nephews walk on them, hell, I stand on them with wet dirty boots.... they clean up with some water and a brush and look brand new.
