68 Fuse box rewire

All right fellas, I'm installing my new console gauge conversion harness & I need to plug new wires into the fuse box & also into the connector on the engine side of the firewall. I have removed console, dash carrier, hood, hood hinge, vacumn booster and most everything else that was in the way. My question is, does the front part of the fuse box pull off of the back part where the wires are? If so how does one accomplish this? As always thanks for your knowledgeable advice.

Re: 68 Fuse box rewire

OK, I think I figured it out. I gently pried the plug off of the engine side with a tweaker. Then went under the dash & saw the two little clips on the corners of the fuse box & unsnapped them & voila it came apart. Even being very careful I managed to break one of the 42 year old plastic clips . I don't think this will make much difference as the long screw will hold it in place.
