If your going to pull the dash, you may just want to go ahead and do the HUD.

It would be nice if we had detailed DIY on this. I definately want to do this mod but I'm a little weary of taking my dash apart. I wouldn't know where to begin.

Does the part on the tonkin site include the bezel for the ac vents? I think it may be a separate part that costs another $163.75 (see part 003)

Can you order a 2012 Dash from GM? I have been having a hard time finding one, most parts suppliers don't have them, and then I was close to getting one from a junk yard but decided it was in too bad of shape. So does anyone know where I could get one? I'd really appreciate it!

Yeah same here, I am for sure gonna do this at some point in the near future, but I am definitely a little weary, I know it can be done, just not how it can be done.

Yeah, I got in contact with the spaldings link you posted, and the best one they had was in pretty rough shape. I debated on getting it, but I was too worried I wouldn't be able to fix it up.
