    nice... I somehow missed the fact that you swapped in a Z dash. How far off are the door panels?

    Side to side it fits fine,but your left with about a 1 inch gap where the dash curves out to meet the door panel

    Someone should do a "how-to" on replacing the dash on the 3rd. gen cars (or a "how-to" swap the ZX2 dash in a 3rd. gen sedan)
