You're scaring the kid Ron. I have one just like that. On removing dash, pry off louvred ac vents with putty knife from bottom of black plastic, if you use a light you'll see philips screws at top of openings, also there are about 6 screws attaching bottom of dash. The bad news is if there are cracks in wood veneer, this is not repairable by sanding, because wood has seperated from behind. If you do a search you'll find more info on repair veneer. On the older models dash was vinyl instead of wood, maybe black or gray vinyl would be an easy fix.
