    Removing from the doors seems relatively easy, the dash however seems a bit gnarly.  I think removing  the glove box and climate control is sufficient to remove the passenger side dash bit, but what about that part on the driver side?

    I’ve got a ton of cracked varnish on the dash parts of my parts car, which comes off very easily and the wood underneath is just beautiful.  I want to bring it back to normal…

    thanks for any pointers!

    Found the answer.  The key I was missing is the instrument panel.  A bit scary for a noob, but nothing ventured, right?

    Remove the instrument cluster, the panel under the steering wheel, the glove compartment and the ECC controls. Then you can remove the small nuts that hold the wood trim to the dash

    After having done this, I can assure you that the panels will be going back in with double sided tape.  Never again!!!
