How hard is it to remove the trim on the console/dash? I'd like to paint it and want to make sure I don't break anything in the process.... :embarrest::bigsmile:

Its not that hard at all when i removed mine i really thought that i would break it your best bet is to use a flathead screw driver to remove the panels (make sure u take them off in the right order)

its pretty easy man, i've taken mine out in the middle of the woods at night during a party to fix my stereo...no tunes = shitty party. haha, its just pulls out. get a panel remover or do what i did "it'll scratch it up a little tho and you might leave a pop up tab in the dash" and get a big knife and wedge it out.

Just use the flathead to "pry" it off or are there screws in some places?

Sweet. I'm not quite sure if I should just do the silver trim on mine, or if I should do like the little hatch door and cup holder too.... Would it look dumb if I just did the silver trim? b/c the door and cup holder is just the black interior color.... It's not silver w/ the rest of the trim....:unsure:
