          really don't slow down for pics too much, dash is out template made for my guy to waterjet it on tuesday, after i drop the boat out for canvas, headliner in the cuddy is out and starting to rewire. while the boat is out for canvas i will start to put new dash together and wire it. i still have a few wires up in the dash avea that i do not khow where they go but i will trace them out

                    so i have the headliner out of the cuddy, what do you do to reinstall it, poprivet like the original, put screws into the foam core, or some sort of nutsert so you can bolt it in so it is easy to remove for wiring if nessesary
