1966 Dash pad removal

I am trying to remove the dash pad on a '66. I removed the screws from under the front lip and side trim. What's next?

Find the hidden ones. From reading these posts over time most miss a few that are not easy to get to or are hard to even see. Verify you have them all by comparison to the assembly manual; you are going to reference it as a dis-assembly manual.

You're not alone Joe, I tried once on my 66 and failed, then gave up.

Give SMS fabrics a shot if you want to match the exact color and material of the original. Been restoring cars for over 35 years and used them multiple times. They never let me down. Even with rare, hard to find materials. You will get original, OEM and NOS since they've been stashing fabrics forever.

Sponsors for this site may also provide fabrics, but that would be generic, naturally.
