Dash Pad Removal

Hello again.
Just wondering if anyone's had any experience removing the dash padding and the metal..piece..that runs across the dash (the one with the speakers behind it). I've removed the plastic covers (speedo, tacho, and misc. guage covers) but can't seem to find any other screws in the area (other than the windshield mounting ones) that'd help me remove the rest of it (or I'm just a moron -- probably the latter).

It's an 89 YJ.
Thanks in advance & happy March everyone.

To remove the dash pad and the other dash pieces you myst unbolt the windshield plates at the dash (2 torx bolts) AND the upper side roll bar extensions at the top of the windshield.
Then CAREFULLY (after spraying hinges with penetrating lube for a few days)fold down the windshield.
Access to all the pad screws is now visable.
