Removing my dash
I've been wanting to dye my dash black for a while now especially after painting my center console blue to match my car. Well after A LOT of work I finally got it out. I will be posting pics soon after I finish painting, and if I have lots of time I might post a guide on how to remove it since we don't have one yet. I just finished prepping it for the first coat... and I did get a pic of what my car looks like now on the inside and a before pic of my dash.

Yeah I did do this all by myself and if anyone is looking to do it, I highly recommend getting help! It is definitely a two person job. It took me about 3 or 4 hours altogether to remove it since I didn't have a guide or anything to look at. There are so many hidden and hard to reach screws. And yes, you have to remove the airbag on the passenger side but that wasn't hard... kinda scary tho thumbsup But when I do get the whole job done I will post pics. Thanks!

Hope you don't have to reset the air bag sensor on that baby. If when you put everything back together again and the airbag light comes on and don't go away. Then you have a problem. confused

But great job man thumbsup

Also you should do the doors too thumbsup

To match the dash thumbsup

Thanks! thumbsup I'm not so worried about the wires, they were attached to clips on my dash so I'll just clip them back in... there are so many screws tho... but it was worth it.

this seems like a common project here recently...
It looks good!

What product did you use on the dash?

What the dash looked like in the first picture, is that the stock color of it or something?! Looks like it was painted w/primer or something.

And I'm taking a guess that most people don't have black/black interior, so that's why people are dying their shit black now?

For the AC Stickers you can email [email]b0x@4sided.com.[/email] I used SEM Vinyl die, it's flat black. And yes I'm going to paint the rest of the interior but the dash was the hardest so that's why I did it first. I just put it back into my car and I won't have pics for a while cause it takes some time to screw everything back into place but I will post pics. Thanks for the compliments! thumbsup

Good choice with the SEM... that's what i used. I used the satin black, with a low lustre clear coat... you did clear coat it yes? If you didn't it will fade in about a year!

i could have given you a decent how-to remove guide. you looks great, but i think you should have done your airvents to match the center console and gauge bezel!

I didn't want to mix the colors of my dash.. I just want to keep it black with my blue plastics. In my opinion I think it looks cleaner and I want to stick with the color scheme of my car, but thanks for the advice. thumbsup
