Default drilling into dash

ok so my dash i curling up by the windsheild really bad. im having the windsheild replaced today so it would be easy to do this while it was out.

i was thinking i would just put a few screws in it to hold it down. is there any wiring that far up in the dash i would have to worry about.

I would assume the only wires up that high are the ones that go to the daylight sensor. I don't know if they run along the bottom of the dash, or if they go straight down..

there shouldnt be wires up there, i took a big chance when i took the sawzall to my hondas dash and all the wiring went up from the floor into the stereo and climate controls so i didnt hit anything, my buick on the otherhand would be a different story since all the dash lights run the full length of the dashboard across the top
