Crickets? Would someone give me a pic from floor up so I can see what all I can cut out with out destroying the pad? Both sides and the center over the radio. Iv'e never seen it and never done it, never did any interior type work. Little help here!

When I did my pad about 12 years ago, I recall when I got done that I should have gotten more aggressive with the backing foam removal around where the windshield is and the dash pod insert as it would have made everything easier for me.

Chip, I can only offer moral support and your post to the top of the thread. Here is a thread with pics of a 58 end cap and wind lace.

Hermn59, I have searched, and never saw those, I'm not a computer guy. There are some good pics and info to study. I don't know why my search skills are so lame, but I had searched and searched, purchased the AK 1980's video, suffered through the Paragon silent film of a guy's back doing work. Just before I started to cut I searched again and found FTF post and it was way more informative than the rest on the top side, If I can get confy on bottom, I'm golden. Thanks for time spent doing search for me.

Iíve had my best results using Google. Many claim the forum search works, but I have not mastered it.
