surgin...

it looks like the nav station is held in by about 4-5 bolts on the topside...what else holds it in there?

also, once that is removed, is it then possible to remove the door, or is there anothe wat to get the door out?

The dash panels and gauges are what started this little project...now it's mushroomed...all of the hardware has been removed and is getting powdercoated...new gauges from AutoMeter, panels from Team Marine, bezels and speedo from Livorsi and Momo wheel from Marine Machine...

BTW...nice job on Surgin General!

i cant see what panels you are talking about but if they are the side panels, in my 89 cafe they are through bolted. pull out the speakers reach in and take the nuts loose. once you get the bottom panel off there is another cut out to get to the nuts for the upper panel. dont just yank like i did. also when you go to paint the dash make sure before you sand use polycracker to get rid of all wax and oil. take my word for it it had been loaded up over the years due to fading and will cause serious fish eyes. and i mean serious. to get the passenger pod will come off buy taking out phillips screws and cutting through caulk. once out you can take out cabin door. i also had my door tracks powder coated which is working very well. hope this helps.

Default REf to painting

Make sure you sand it down good and use alot of fisheye remover, a lot of these dashes sit in the sun with dash treatments that got soaked up into the paint.
