Yes, I understand them, watched a video on YouTube. I’m only thinking about using that new fastener in those hard to reach areas. I guess I can try it, and if I can’t get the new pad installed properly, I can remove the dash at that time. I just don’t want to get into project creep!

Would like to thank everyone who responded to this post. Since I never replaced my dash pads I followed this post with interest.
I have restored nearly everything on my car except for the dash pads. Never did I think the process was a difficult as has been explained here.
It certainly appears the best way to replace dash pads is to remove the entire dash unit.
Thanks again for the enlightenment!

The only onerous part is removing the instrument cluster to pull the dash frame....everything else is straight-forward...

As to the cluster pull, as the Navy SEALS say, just "embrace the suck" and do it...
