    There is no speaker. Not sure if there ever was. For a no AC 1980 z28, how do I go about putting a front speaker in? Do I need a bracket and can I get that bracket with a new speaker? This listing looks like it has a bracket. How challenging is it to get it up, in and connected?

    On a non-A/C car (79-81)... I think you can install it by removing just the dash bezel.
    For my 80 Berlinetta (with A/C) I removed the bezel and the gauge cluster to fit it into place.

    How easy is it to remove the dash bezel? Never done that.

    Remove the clock knob, 6 allen-head screws and electrical connections for the wipers, headlights, fasten seat belt light, defrost switch and cigarette lighter.
