    hey all, may be usefull info for some of you but i just worked out how to pull clock surround of ae86 without breaking it

    tools needed:

    2 resonably sized zipties...


    how to:

    as shown in pic below, get the 2 zipties and jam them down each side of the clock surround, this will be a little hard as the zipties have to puch the clips out

    once zipties are in, get ahold of both with each hand and give it a firm tug

    and presto, out it comes, no scratches from using metal tools and no breakages

    hope i helped someone haha

    mmm thanks for the input

    ill put that up when i learn how to do it.... fuckin things always seem to break

    on a serious note, i did this coz i may help someone, 99% of adm 86s have cracked/missing/broken clock surrounds and the ones that dont and want to pull their dash out may want to keep their shit unbroken
