All the bulbs in my dash except one or two

were burned out. At night, I couldn't see much of anything on the gauges. I decided to start taking of some dash bezels to replace lights. I found lots of rust and found myself in the middle of a dash and windshield frame rebuild. I will still have to replace lots of bulbs when the other parts are done.

Looks like mine when I removed the rotted windshield frame. It took a few days to get everything cleaned up and in couple of weeks it was all back together. Quite a project but if you are not in a hurry you can get her done. Since the dash is apart you will be looking for new screws if so let me know I got mine at fastenall by the 100/pack. If you need the part # let me know. By the way put new speakers in before you reassemble. Go with the LED dash light upgrade its not expensive.

Excellent advice! Get good quality speakers especially if your interior gets wet from wheeling. Standard dash bulbs are 194. Joker, thanks for the info on the dash screws, I was wondering where to look for them.
