Hi all. Have just joined as I begin resto on 57. well into stripping and freaking out at the wiring but have taken lots of photos and labelled etc.
Would like to ask advice regarding removal of the side vents under the dash. I have of course removed the floor coverings and side trim. Removed the few screws that appear to hold the sub-assembly and have disconnected the clip and connection to the external vent. But it still seems to be firmly held in place and I can't find any more fixings? Could it just be the very sticky gasket (seems to be held too firmly for that)?
