Default Dashboard change

Last fall I was lucky to find a dashboard in perfect shape and the same color! How about that luck! Since the truck I pulled it from was already half apart and wrecked, I didn't pay too much attention to detail, really only focusing on getting the dash out without damaging it. Since this is my truck, I want to be more careful. Anyone have any suggestions or steps to do this so I can put everything back together properly?
I have a 95 ram 1500 reg cab. I'll get pics up very soon.

There are a few YouTube videos you can watch. Just type in "Dodge Ram dash replacement" and you'll get several hits. I watch a couple of them because I'll be doing this soon and I wanted to know how difficult it would be. Doesn't look too bad, just time consuming....

Just an update. I pulled the dash and seperated the cracked top from the main dash. Lots of hidden screws. I found that the dash was inspected by "L&C" in March of 95. Finishing tomorrow since the weather doesn't look good.

New dash is in! It took me 4hrs to drop the entire dash and pull the top from the main dash. Lots of little black screws.
