you are TOUGH ! As you can see by my signature, I am no stranger to going to great lengths when it comes to retrofitting. And I REALLY wanted a leather dash, and have seen them for sale on German eBay, but even I could not bring myself to undertake what looked like a staggering amount of work.
In the old V8 model the dash cover was held on with about 5 screws hidden in the dash vents, which seems like a better way to engineer a dash.
The good news is that the pain of the R&R will recede in the distance but the enjoyment of your dash will be ongoing.
