Markaduran21 I've got it mostly back together now waiting on the glove box and grab handle still though it looks awesome gets scratched kind of easy on the black parts the grey holds up pretty well I'll wait and see how it cures though I used krylon fusion and I still have to do the doors and center console 8 also put in leds in my odometer thing while it was open not to familiar with changing heater cores or what exactly they do to be honest lol but I don't have heat if that has anything to do with it!

Wow, you've got that far. You might as well swap out your heater core while you're in there!

Markaduran21 Got it love you guys lol I was stuck with those 2 bolts and all the screws under the air bag but wasn't to bad thank you!
01-14-2015 09:54 AM
Night Prowler After those 5 screws come out there is 2 bolts. They are at the top corners of the airbag panel underneath. If you shine a light up you should be able to see them from the glove box. I believe its a 10mm

Those 5 little black screws need to come out. Then the cover can be pulled up and will allow you to access the two bolts I was referring to. It's been a little while since I've done this so I can't be *too* specific about those and how to access them but I can definitely guide you to *where* they are. They're just kind of a pain in the a-- to reach. Once the cover is off your whole dash panel should be free (assuming everything else is already removed, but after those two bolts everything else that might still be stuck is really obvious - you just look where it won't come free)

Markaduran21 Thank you for your quick response I did read your post u explained it great but still having some trouble I think I'm stuck by the airbag cover I think that's stopping the big part of the dash from coming out I don't know how to tag u in this yet either lol but I think it maybe the bolts inside the airbag section making me stuck I assume

Were you still confused after reading my walk-through? I addressed how to get the cover off. If I wasn't clear enough my best advice is to feel around for where it's stuck. That generally leads you to the problem area. The airbag cover was the trickiest part for me, it's two bolts in line with the 'seam' on the cover' that are sort of tricky to reach.

I just cleaned the plastic with some soap, dried it and rubbed it down with some mineral spirits. It has held up really well for the most part. The console takes a beating from things sliding around in the back so there are some scuff marks here and there but overall I'm satisfied with how it has held up. I'm really neurotic so the fact that I'm not dying to repaint ASAP I think is a pretty good reflection of how well the bumper coating holds up. (I will eventually do something more permanent, but it's very low priority)

You just have to do lots of light passes and you're fine. I was a little pushy with my driver's side speaker cover because it couldn't be removed (my PIAAs are wired up to buttons on it) so it had to be painted still attached and I'm not a patient person. So I have peeling there that I'll have to touch up but otherwise haven't had issues

Color Coatâ„¢ Aerosols Products | SEM Products
Yeah, I caught that after my post. Thanks!

Did you use any of their other products for prep? It looks like they have an array of them.

Are you sure it was actually grey originally then? Cause mine was one solid colour the whole way through, and no flaking to speak of...

I used Duplicolor last year and some is flaking off..could be that I rushed the prep though.

If you plan it right you can definitely do the prep in stages in the evenings and then knock it out as a weekend project!
Your right. I've actually done it too. Not to the extreme yet. The weather just doesn't cooperate. I'm in NC and it's been below avg temps this year. Rather annoying. Lol. Ty for the tip.

No better way than having a bare floor for a few months. Especially w/ kids. I also did my cluster lights in blue from superleds.com which looks better than the images. Hopefully the weather will permit on my next days off. Otherwise it will be spring when I finish. Lol
