Lol, can solve that nugz, just gotta post the DIY here after someone finds it. I remember seeing it on the old site before the crash. Guess no one has it. Duff if you can tell me how to just take em out that'd be fine. pictures would help but just knowing how to get em out without breakin something is what im going for. Going to buy the paint and what not today.

not to get off topic or anything but why are you in the dog house w/ admin? or did you just finally get tired of locking threads w/ mis information on them

There isnt a beef or anything between myself and Admin. I chose to give up my mod position cause my views are very different when it comes to the abilities that a mod should have. Brian is a great guy that runs a great site with great people. It was just a personal decision of mine.

When I do mine I'll be bleaching the panels clean and then just using the paint for plastic...

I went to a local auto paint place called finishmasters near me today. They said to get a good even smooth primer would be a good choice. Sometimes cuz of the plastic the paint can run. So im going primer route. Going to be posting a DYI when im done doing the entire thing.

As far as removing the panels though. It's all "clippy thingys" that pop right out correct? I haven't really put much force into it but just using bare hands I haven't been able to get anything off yet...
