    This is not necessarily true at all. Several of us........and I believe I got this idea from Redfish......installed the dash fastener clips upside down, and used shorter screws, so that we can install/ remove the dash frame WITHOUT having the windshield out.

    Only reason it was done this way originally was for speed / ease on the assy line

    Awesome build. Seems to me just HAVING a Mopar in Russia is pretty cool!!

    regarding gauges, lots of us have aftermarket gauges under the dash, including a mechanical (as opposed to electrical) oil pressure gauge, voltmeter, I even prefer to put an ammeter under dash and attach the original wires.

    Speaking of mechanical gages. I purchased 2 gages from Jegs. 2&5/8" Mechanical oil pressure, and 2&5/8 mechanical water temp. Will mount under the dash in a home made gage panel mount I made from aircraft aluminum. That's the 2 most important gages IMHO. Temp and pressure.
