How hard is it to install this dashboard ? Level of difficulty ?

I found a pretty good looking dashboard for sale on ebay. The seller is located in my area as well so I wnet to look it and it was in amazing shape. I'm thinking of bidding on it but how hard is it to install this ?
How much do you think it will sell for ?

Its not hard.
Consider doing this if you really like the dash. take you 1/2 a day if everything is OK, not broken. I removed the evaporator box in teh 300TD and doing just the dash is not bad.

Dashpad install

6-8 hrs (probably most of a day)
I would personally have recommended a Dash shell (available for $60 - 80) that simply glues over the dash and hides the cracks and has cutouts for the speakers.

This is however the 'proper' way to do it.

cheers
Hari


ps- email me offline at grimgaunt at yahoo dot com,
I notice that you have bid on my turbo kit on EBAY, lets talk

YOu can do this. Be patient and realize you may have to uninstall things once you realize you forgot something or did it in the wrong step.

Here is my list of installing my dash. scroll down a bit to find the "installing the dash" section.
