Prepping the Interior for the Installation of the 2 TV Dash

Some prep work for the installation of the 2 TV Dash. I removed the top dash pad and a lot of the lower front panels and the dash gages cluster cover panel. Pulling out the dash cluster is proving to be more difficult than it should be. According to my Pontiac Firebird Service Manual the Gage Cluster should come out far enough to be able to reach in behind the cluster and press the release on the Speedo Cable. But guess what?? On mine there is no way it comes out far enough to be able to reach the cable release. Giuseppe from "Knight Rider World" has suggested this is a common thing with these 3rd gen. models and that a good idea might be to cut a small piece of the top console plastic to gain better access to back of the speedo cable. I'll try that option out and post another video and some pictures.
