Well, seeing as how today was such a nice day here in South Carolina, I decided to go ahead and tear out my dash to be painted. It wasn't nearly as hard as I had thought it would be. Took me about 45 minutes. Since there were no how-to's or DIY's on any of the sites I looked on, I decided to do one myself and will get it posted up later after work. But for now, here are some pics of the painted and installed dash. Let me know what you guys think.

It wasn't that hard to take out. Only took about 45 minutes or so. ANd as far as the glare, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. But I did cut a piece of black fabric to cover the dash with for normal driving. Just wanted to have it painted for the car shows

I plan on getting the how to up tonite, but as for the airbag, you need to drop down your glove box, look in that opening and you will see a small pull down flap type thing. Pull this down and you will see two 10mm bolts. These are the bolts holding the airbag in. Be sure and disconnect your battery and pull the airbag fuse before doing anything around the airbag tho.

Nope, no glare from the paint around the gauges. The only glare I get is a little bit from the silver up by the windshield, but it's not that bad. No problems while driving from it.

As for the spoiler, no it's the RK Sport spoiler. You can get it from most places that sell body kits and what not for the cobalt.
