Just did it today. I vacuumed, washed with dawn since its a degreaser, sanded, vacuumed, washes with clean water then just got to it. Went really quick and used a lot less then I thought I would. Idk what your using but I used the dupli color and ended up using a little more then half of what I thought I would so the first cost went on thick. Just take your time during prep and paint and tape off good

Should I worry a lot about the seats or are they easy to take out and put back in?

Took under 10 min to get both seats and the entire center console out. I think the center has a t20 or 25 and each seat has one t50

Sounds easy enough that was probably my biggest concern.

Any favorite brands?

Monstaliner is great and Herculiner is good also. I haven't done mine yet but know guys who have both and love theirs.

When I do mine I thought about putting masking tape around part of the threads on each bolt. Then screw the bolts back in their particular holes to the tape. This way the threads are protected on both bolt and hole. Instead of plugging with paper towels. What do you guys think.

I just left most of the bolts in. Plugged the holes I didn't have a bolt in in case I was gona use them later.
