From people who have the colored trim, am I better off buying the colered trim from GM or is spray paint a good enough subsitute, and does anyone have any pics of the red trim? Preferably in a LS or base coupe.
Okay did u put any clear coat on it or just use a high gloss paint?i spray painted mine black and i'm pretty sure most people just spray paint. grab a can of krylon fusion paint for plastic, or dupli-color [if you want to color match] and after a bit of sanding and priming you'll be good to go. i'm sure it'll be a lot cheaper than anything from GM.
Yeah those i've done many times.most of the stuff is just held in by clips. i'm not sure about the defrost vents but for the trim i just attacked that with a flat head screwdriver. if i remember correctly there are 3 or 4 clips in the longer dash piece and two in the others. the radio panel, i want to say there was 6 but i dont remember for sure.
Yeah it had a clip but some "persuasion" got it. I just hope the paint works i got dupli color but i dont have good luck when it comes to paint and plastic.the defrost vents easily pop out with a flathead and some force. However my driver side was nice to me but my passenger side wasnt, for some reason the passenger side was screwed in and i couldnt get it to screw out so i pretty much broke it out but it still clipped back in. So be careful, but it should just pop out.
