I started by removing the dash. I wanted to see if I had any holes through the cowl as is the same common problem with old Mustangs and sure enough I do have holes. This is going to mean removing the cowl body panel and then drilling out the spot welds that hold the cowl together in order to get inside the cowl to remove all the rust, cut out the weakened area, and then fabricate new pieces to weld in.

Underneath the dash was a snarl of wires. One or some of the previous owners have spliced in to add stereo components and a remote temperature gauge, and who knows what else!

I was sure to label all the wires as I disconnected them from the dash instruments. After removing the dash I further disassembled it and cleaned it enough for storage. The dash pad had another nighmare waiting for me under the "custom" cloth cover.
