There are a lot of steps we’ve taken with our current street/strip ’69 Dodge Charger that we would’ve avoided had we had the chance to do it all over again. Key among them would be removing the dashboard for a full restoration when we had the windshield out over a decade ago. Why? Because nobody in their right mind likes crawling underneath their dashboard to try chase broken wires, missing plugs and replace lightbulbs.
