In addition to the mounting points on the right and left, there are three bolts under the dash directly under the top of the dash, one on each end and one in the middle. The gauge cluster should pull out as it is a friction fit on a pin in the middle and two screws in the upper corners of the cluster, They are sometimes rusted in place. You can use a hammer and gently tap it  to work it loose it so it will pull out. Put some anti seize on it before you reinstall it. The oil pressure line will have to be removed. There are two scews the attach the radio console to the dash.
The gauge pod has 2 wiring connections that need to be disconnected. You might need to remove the switch panels on the bottom of the dash along with the glove box. They might come out with the dash I don't recall. I took all the dash and gauges out as I did the Madera wood at the same time. Hope this helps. It sounds like a lot of work but it doesn't take that much time to do.
