Help! Im trying to remove dash Panel on The passenger-side

I talked with someone on how to remove this Panel but can't find it . But Does it just pop out ?
The other side did but not this one .
I'm about at the point of putting both feet on the dash and pulling! ( disconnect the airbag first, lol)

Oh, cool. Looks nice. Are you sure you actually have to remove the panel? It looks like you can just put it on like a sticker.

He's using vinyl and wrapping it. It actually folds around the edges and makes it look factory, plus its like $20 compared to $200 for the overlay which won't wrap around the edges.

My 11 year old brother did one side I did the other u got it man. Find a color or style you like order it . Get at least 50x10 In. So If you happen to mess up a piece of vinyl u have more .
But it stretches when heated and acts like a rubber glove. That sticks .
Just pop the cover off do your vinyl pop it back on . Same thing you would have to do if you ordered new covers. And worse case if you mess up a cover order the ones you was going to get . And you are only out 5 bucks .

I like this! I too want to do something simular (copy the Boss 302 dash look).

Great writeup on how to do this. Thanks!

Can't help you but it looks awesome so far. The overlays look horrible and they're shiny the vinyl has a somewhat matte finish. If I had a base model dash this is the first thing id do!

Try pm'ing "onebad3.7" I think that's his name...he painted his dash red. Search for his posts
