1986 CJ7 Metal dash replacement level of difficulty?
I'm looking for an über-original 1986 CJ7. Most of the ones I've found have a butchered dashboard. In most cases, the 2-knob radios have been replaced with DIN mount stereos. I know this may sound silly to some (or everyone), but the painted metal dash is one of the main reasons I'm looking for a CJ. I'm not interested in anything to cover the holes; I don't want to turn the DIN mount area into a cubby hole. I just want it to look like it did when it was built in 1986.
So, my question is this: if I find an otherwise good '86 CJ7, how hard is it going to be to replace the metal dash? Is that something that bolts on or would it have to welded or what?
