Easy thing to do but took me 2 solid (And I mean Solid) days to complete. Those that say 2 hours need a reality check! Mabey taking the dash out could take 2 hours with a couple of ppl.

Well, A dash is about 8 bolts and its not as akward as an exhaust so it would be about the same sort of work. When I did my exhaust, it only took about an hour an a half.
