Does any one know ho I should disassemble the instrument panel/dashboard on a 62 Pontiac tempest
Hello all. I have a 1962 Pontiac Tempest. It is a hard top, 4 cylinder 2 gear power glide. I almost disassembled all the interior parts and bits including the glove compartment lid but have hard time opening the actual instrument panel. I appreciate if someone can send me a hint where I should start. Buy the way this is my first restoration project and I am pretty amateur. I included some pictures to see how it looks generally.


Thanks

I have a 62 convertible and did the same as you are tying. My advise to you is dont be afraid. Get under the dash and feel around. There are numerous screws holding the panel in place. I believe they are 5/16". A nut driver and a 1/4" ratchet works best. Be carefull of the bulbs and wires and be sure to disconnect the battery first. Also disconnect the speedometer cable. Take your time and enjoy each screw removal. Also make note to remember how it goes back togather. It's really not that bad. Go on ebay and get the CD manual, it helps when you get stuck. Also beware of the ground wires otherwise your lights wont work. Good Luck.
