|After putting the carpet kit in my JH it was time for dash re assembly. The dash board has been in the car by its self for quite a while. I was trying to put the heater console under the dash and it seemed to be a tight fit...a very tight fit. After giving it several tries, loosening all of the dash mounting points, forcing and measuring the space I put a small crack in the dash and stopped.
After another beer, I took a step back and noticed the dash looks like it has sagged. I grabbed a straight edge and put it on the chrome strip along the bottom of the dash and it looks as if it did sag. Several years in the hot Arizona sun must have taken its toll.
I tightened the mounting screws on the ends of the dash and put a bottle under the middle to jack up the center. Maybe I can reverse the process.
Did I miss something? Any thoughts?
