    1966 padded dash removal

    It seems the majority of the elec. work under the dash is not vert acessable. Can anyone tell me the steps required to remove a 1966 caddy conv. padded dash?

    Also is the sentinel lighting lever at the face of the insrument suppose to continue to turn 360 degrees, or should it stop at the off and max settings? I have a manual but this is not described in the manual.

    Note: be careful for electric wiring that is attached to the dash!
