I'm trying to figure out how the front windshield defrosters on the 1987 and up exited the dash to clear the window. Would someone be able to describe what it looks like or, better yet, provide a picture or two? Thanks in advance, Bob

Years ago, I installed an 89 dash in my 70. Fits fine. I used the original defroster ducting and both sections matched the openings on the 89 dash. This picture was from last October when the windshield was being installed. It shows something of what I speak, however the duct on the passenger side has dropped down a bit and has to be refastened. They lay almost right against the windshield.

Perfect, exactly what I need. Any chance you might have a shot of the total installed dash showing it from the inside front view. Thanks, Bob

Thanks again, I have one and really like how the dash wraps the drivers side. I'm trying to get creative with the heater & vent controls in my 74 with this dash. What a resource. - Bob
