Slimer....final part of the 2.0 upgrades..and looking for opinions and help

Evening all!
Final stretch for last round of my so called '2.0' upgrades for Slimer...that being said have small poll and some questions to ask.
#1 - anyone have the pdf or link to for front bumper removal?
#2 - reminder (for old guy me) all dash parts to be vinyl wrapped...other than airbag panel and radio console....what has to be unbolted to remove all (all dash sections L-R)???? can trim pieces on steering wheel be removed..????
#3 ease of changeout for shifter boot??? while console top off for wrapping...
#4 Door panel removal..easy, hard, what? any pdf's or directions from those who have done it...?
#5...Opinion. mind you this was pasted on my facebook so im looking for those that didnt get that.....
Looking to put in the new Roush upper grille.....that being said do I (A) put new and freshened tri bar pony back on grille center or (B) leave it out of grille for the cleaner 'Roush' look....please respond to poll/opinion with either A or B
"A"
"B"

Many Thanks to all that have been a tremendous help in the past and hopefully with these items. I really appreciate it!

Roush's website had full color detailed bumper removal instructions (on their parts page for the bumpers).

Silver horse racing had good instructions a while back on the door replacement for their billet helmets.

Ask Hmiller on the bumper she has actually done it.. I'm almost positive it comes off the same way the 05-12's do. And I say option B

Taking the bumper off is easy literally 8 bolts 6 screws in the fenders wells then the pop tabs on the radiator cover and pull it off!

No problem, your rides looking good! I just can't make myself pay for cosmetics I've been dumping into the performance department though!

Thank- you sir! I googled instructions but couldn't find it. I removed mine using a 10-12 guide but wasn't sure if they had made things different on the '13 or not

I haven't got to really get into it yet just got it wrapped up last night then the shop made me leave cause they were closing. But it started up without the tune and revved a little, but it's going on the dyno and getting tuned today! So ready hopefully it makes at least 450 if not putting on a smaller pulley!
