Never Installed - But it looks and feels great!
So I bought this to install with the lower hinge I got from AM (which works beautifully!) but when I went to detach the upper hinge, I found out there is a nut that is welded to the car frame and a bolt that holds the hinge to the car is put through the INSIDE of the car. Somewhere around where the dash is. I couldn't figure out how to get to it and a few quick searches on forums provided no answers, so I never got it on. It appears that the whole dash and cluster panel etc... has to come off. This job is going to be a big PIA so make sure you know exactly how to do the job before you start. Find a YouTube video or forum (I couldn't find one - and no directions) before you start or you'll be like me and waste an hour or more of your life trying to figure it out only to fail and waste however many dollars I did on this hinge.
