Front cowl/dash
« on: June 11, 2006, 08:49:39 PM »
Not sure what this part is called but it is the front part of the dash where the defrost vents and speaker grill is.
I am looking for one with the 2 speaker cutouts in the corners, I found 2 speakers and grills on ebay.
Does this piece come out? Anyone got one?
Anyone got these speakers on their car and could take a good pic of them without the speakers in it , I may cut my own holes for them.

I was looking for a place to put 2 front speakers and didnt want to butcher the new deluxe door panels I am buying from Brett or put them in the console.

TIA

Man that is a major job to change that piece.  :evil: That metal dash piece continues under the windshield and goes out to the firewall. Windshield gotta come out, etc. My car is currently stripped with the windshield out. I will try to get a pic for you. I think its a big job to cut the dash and have it look like they were there from the factory.  :idea: The easiest way would be to find a donor car and cut out about 1/2" around the factory hole and try to weld it into the same size hole in your dash. Then skim over the neatly ground weld with a bit of fill and repaint the metal dash. I think my parts car has the pieces you need.

Well my windshield was going to be coming out anyway so that wont be a big deal, I figured I would just cut holes in my own if it is going to be a major hassle.
