As I'm always thinking about next steps. Is there a thread on here about installing the dash? From bare body to almost complete?

I found the bushings listed on the other thread, Checked out the prices and they have doubbled! Thumbs Down I check fords website and i believe rock auto was a little cheaper. The links that were on there were expired but does anybody know were I could find them at less that $20 a bushing?

I'm second guessing myself for whatever reason but will this work for my body insulator bushing?
