I am uninstalling my Saleen gauge pod... How do I fix the holes in the dash? Can I replace the Dash? Is there a leather cover kit to cover it with?

Well, see if you can trade your dash for theirs ? If it is the same color,and save them from cutting their dash. Just a thought .

I was wanting someone to chime in that had replaced theirs before? I'm not sure how you'd go about getting it out of the car?

Oh, just remember that you don't have to take all of it out that is in the picture I put up, it is just that is the only way I can show it. You are only taking the top part off.

The best I remember, you just have to take the 4 side bolts out, 2 on each side, and pull it loose , but I am getting older and tend to forget a lot LOL

Does that remove the entire dash or just the top?

If I could simply pull the top portion, that'd be sweet. I'd send it out to get covered in leather. :)

Take the 4 bolts off the side, and the top will come loose from the rest .

Im not sure if someone said this or not. I didnt read through the whole thread. Why dont you change your guages to different ones? Like oil, fuel pressure, etc. etc. etc. I think it will be more work than its worth to replace the dash. I would get the gauge you can still use.
