    Stripping down my 70 Skylark convertible and am at a loss to how the dash cluster comes out. Found 9 screws total, steering column is on the bench. Not at all like a 70 Chevelle.

    Ok, kids, what is the secret?

    Oh, YouTube is like tits on a bull on this one. Interesting to look at, but worthless to my cause.

    Make sure you don't miss the 2 or 3 nuts securing the dash pad on top of the glove box liner and the 2 screws above the speedometer cluster. Take the access panel off under the steering column and drop the column. Disconnect the shift indicator link. Reach up and disconnect the speedometer cable. The rest is screws.

    Very cool. Talk about 180 degrees from a Chevelle. A 70, the dashpad has 9 phillips heads, bunch of clips, and the entire dash structure unbolts. One more vote in my head to part out the 72 Stage 1 vert to build the rust free 70 convertible. The Stage 1 has no structure left on the cowl or the dash structure itself.
    And I have to convert the 70 to ac. Fun stuff, but the interior is completely out. Bit more laying room for my 6'7" frame/
