Last month, we began the process of replacing an old-style ('86 to '96) Nissan Hardbody dashboard with the sexy new-style ('97 to '98) dash. We started by taking a trip to California Minitruck Dismantlers in Montclair, California, to locate a donor truck. Once we removed the parts from our donor truck, we went back home and removed the dash out of our project Nissan. The dash swap is a bolt-on deal if you have the right parts. Not only do you need the dashboard, but you also need the subframe that the dash mounts to. In this installment of our story, we'll be swapping out the old subframe for the new one and installing our new dash parts. This will include the subframe, air-conditioning vents and ducting, and the dash. We're just about finished with this project, and next month we'll bring you the conclusion with the installation of a set of Auto Meter gauges.
