Probably a dumb question....
On a scale of 1-10 how are is It to remote the top of the dash. Mine has a crack in it And I want to replace it.
Is it possible to get it reupholstered?

I'm sure a shop that does upholstery would be able to redo it, but it wouldn't be worth the expense. It would be easier and cheaper to find a replacement in a junkyard. It's not difficult to remove a dash. Just like anything else, keep track of where all the bolts/screws/parts/etc go, and take progress pics to help you remember how to put it all back together. Oh, and be gentle with the body harness that's attached; twenty year old wires are pretty brittle. :P

I wish the guy I bought the car would of thought this over.... I have found multiple wires held in place with glue, solder, and rtv glue haha
