From what Rich told me when he done the conversion getting the original dash out wasn't a problem as he didn't care what condition he got it out in so that only took about 30mins, most of the time was spent on the wiring as you have to lengthen, find the correct cable to match the 16v to the GTT wiring. I think he said he took a week but having plenty of breaks and just takeing his times (Not a week constantly at it just spaced over a week).

i did the 'clio dash' last year, took me a week of graft, and wasn't fun...

when i did mine i had to use the clio column (the pic above still has std one) so had to be welded to bulkhead etc, but it means i got proper stalks and ignition in correct place, also mean that buy using a complete clio lockset i no have a working 'plip in key' key rather than a seperate fob

heater controls were a pig to get working correctly, as they work oppositly to the 5, so had to make new ones up from scratch. the 5 dial cluster does fit however with the clips from the clio one attatched in the correct places

i dont have many pics i'm afraid, but here are the camphone ones of when i was doing it:

fitting in a non 16v dash so i could cut it about to my hearts content:

then its time for the 16v dash, using the 1.2 one as a template:
