The aluminum foil tape, on the right was used, as the metal cover was missing when I took it apart. It seems I wasn't the 1st one in here. Odometer and Light sensor lens covers given a cleaning also. Yeah that's of road miles on the ole blue bullet. Still running strong tho. Gonna give it the 383 stroker treatment soon I think. Talk to my old buddies at Bond Mechanical where I was a machinist for a while. Still tho... for 31 years old. Not all THAT bad I guess. But I also have a 95 Aerostar thats got 225,000 kms. So in retrospect, I guess its not that bad.....dunno.....

The money shot!!!
After reconnecting the battery, crossing fingers, toes, testis, and nostril hairs, I turned the key.
All segments came back, and computer has to re-learn its parameters as the battery was disconnected. A few minutes driving will clear that up nicely. All computer calculations are lost and reset back to default. Thats why I got 14 KMS on trip and 32 l/100 km....I hope lol.

Now on to my CF Top!!! I just got the header weatherstripping, so its all over but the cryn lol.

Glad I got my dash back!!!!

Wow. Impressed is an understatement Darrell. My comprehension of how you, or anyone, can accomplish what looks like a gigantic maze of "Oops. Guess I shouldn't have done that" looking for a place to happen is..... well.... It's way beyond my comprehension. That board reminds me of the first time I tried to fathom a Rubik's Cube. Five exasperating minutes until I figured it out. Those little colour squares peel off and if you're carefull. you just stick them back on where you need to.... People like me are lucky there are people like you out there man.... :thumbs:
