Default 40 series dash install questions?

Hey guys,

I've got some questions about my dash.

1. is the 83 HJ47 dash (the pad part) the same as other years? It sure looks the same, but doesn't seem to line up quite perfectly with the new dash pad i've got from an earlier year. Close, but no cigar. Is it the same, & I'm just not doing it right, or do I need an 83 specific pad?
2. Any tips for this install? removal of the old one went easily, but I'm struggling to get the locking metal strip onto the clips on the truck itself. Am I just not doing it right? Or is it just somethign you keep trying until it is there?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
THanks,
Abe

Got the dash mounted, and I think it is correct, but it feels flimsy/floppier than I recall the other one being. Am I just paranoid, or does anyone have any insight that I did something wrong?
Thanks
Abe
