Re: 63 Comet dash assembly question

Nope !!! about 400 spot welds ! maybe a person could cut & have the seam for the donor dash under the dash pad ,,,vs in the windshield pinch where it is attached. then only minimal spotwelds to drill out on the sides. or you might be able to cut down there too & have the donor dash overlap & cover t...
