Dude - nice photos of the metalwork... Sorts out what happened (and how come your 6x9's fit in) quite well. Now if only you could tell my mate Phil how easy it was to put the interior in... I've still got two EF Dash's sitting in my mates carport!

Ahhh Yes..the joys of auto electrics..
Good to see your still making good progress.
That main earth cable is a sneaky little bugger, learnt that the hard way myself.
But going to all that trouble you should also change to power windows, easy to do and solves the issue of the winder hitting the dash.
Use the factory switches on the el console.

mate, ive just put a different dash into another car, had both detailed manuals, and found some discrepancies in they're wire color identification aswell. I think its a problem they dont know is there as they dont use the manuals to make the cars, but arent informed as they are minute errors

i have a fomoco manual, breaks every connector down which is very useful, tells me which pin does what, what connector goes where, what wire goes through which connecter to what sensor. Pretty good.
