All sorts of bolts on the metal frame that runs along the back of the dash. I took one out of the 2000 plymouth that I owned back in Feb of 06. It wasn't too difficult to do, more of a search and destroy measure than anything.

i think with the wires are held in with that cloth tape in the runners. once disconnected you should be able to pull it out.

Yes actually both fenders have about a 3-4 in crack.. Reason not being body work... Earlier this year when I wasn't driving my car, it was sitting in a parking lot and got hit by a plow truck and when it was vandalized they kicked the front bumper so a lot of the front bumper is cracked along with small cracks in the fenders... There not to noticable or I would have taken them off with the rear bumper... The rear was cracked in half from the towing company... They said it was like that and nothin I could do... That's shy it's off..

i was over at Zack's today. while he was working on his Cluster i worked on the rear bumper. basically got it all done. its all in one piece and just needs some minor last minute sanding.

Theres still alot to get done. but man was it fun working with fiberglass again. haha. :thumbup:
