I just got a carbon overlay kit for the interior but I was curious how you pulled the trim off the doors and dash to wrap in vinyl?
I haven't tried prying them off in fear of breaking them..
Thanks... that's going to look nice!
As for pulling the wood grain trim, it's a little time consuming until you get the hang of it.
You need to pull out or remove the center dash piece with where the ac controls are. Easy way to do it is open the lid to the storage area under the ac controls and pull from there.
The easiest one to take off is the long piece where the passenger air bag is. That one is connected to the ac vent so i'd be careful and it's held in place by a small bolt that you will see once you remove the center dash.
The two on both sides of the steering wheel. The one on the right side with the push start button can be taken out with just loosening the "O" plastic trim piece at the base of the steering column, just pull it out (haha thats what she said) couldn't resist.... that one is also held in by the same size bolt (matter a fact all 3 on the dash are held in with bolts)... The one on the left to the steering wheel. You will need to loosen the whole trim piece under the steering wheel where the headlight switch is. You dont need to take it out. I didnt, I was able to get it loose and just pry it enough at the top to get to the bolt that holds the trim piece in place.
The Four door ones are easy, they are held in by small screws, but the hardest part is removing the door panels. Even that isn't hard, you just need to take your time so you dont brake any of the fasteners. They are on there good though lol.
Hope that helps.
