Try using the search feature. There should be a bunch of threads on this.

I just did it on my 35th a week ago. It took me 6 days to do, 2 weekends and 2 days after work. The hardest part was the pedals. Only cause I am so tall. And trying to get under the dash to change them out. Difficulty is a little on the hard side, but worth it. Make sure you get all the parts you need. Unless you have a donor car.
