Heh. Actually, I had my dash valance off while I was installing my turbo timer, and I still pulled my 173 relay through the fuse panel. The weirdest thing was, it was easier to get at from the side than through the front.aliencds, that's cheating!!
Half the sense of accomplishment of doing this mod comes from shoving your hand in past the fuse panel trying to get to the relay and scraping the crap out of your knuckles.
Now put it back and do it the "right" way!
