Hello all, I am in the process of putting my interior in my 69. I want to install the vinyl woodgrain inserts on the lower dash. My issue is the dash bezels for the headlights, and cigar lighter. I am having a difficult time removing them and do not want to break them as they are original pieces. Also, will I need to remove the bezel around the wiper switch and rear window defogger, or are they part of the backer panel? Thanks.

Thank you for your reply. Those pictures help and thanks for taking the time to post them. I believe the cigar lighter and headlight bezels are screwed on but I cannot seem to get them to unscrew, nor can I get the headlight knob to pull off. I am not sure what any of the previous owners did to them. I feel stupid even posting this problem! Something so simple is giving me a headache. lol.

In terms of the headlight knob removal. Have you pulled the knob all the way out/ to the on position and then pressed the small spring button on the back of the switch simultaneously when pulling the switch out the last bit.

Sometimes it takes a few tries.

Cigarette lighter unscrews from the back side. Remove wiring and light. Unscrew the housing, Pull lighter from the front.
