Yep
Edging forward, dash pad fit up, after trying to fold back the clinched still retaining the clip and then fitting new spring clips, decided to put slip nuts on instead and screw from dash side.
Pity that the mob who reconditioned my dash pad didn’t remove the broken spring clips when they had it apart re skinning!

Bit annoying when that happens, like doing half a job.

Trial fit of dash and surround again. Looks like I may need to trim dash surround front corner to get it to sit a fraction lower.

8-) Looking schmick Mr Spaghettijet. A little lower on the front edge won't hurt.
