Drivability with all interior trim removed?

I want to hydrodip my interior and planned on removing the interior trim pieces and sending them to a guy 2 hrs away. I would go there to pick it all but my main question is that if I remove everything like center console, radio bezel, door handle surrounds, gauge surrounds and so on will it be drivable? Anyone ever hydrodipped? they say it takes a week to do the parts so surely someone here has had all that off and still drove to work for a week?

Yeah you're good. Had mine add a few days while I vinyl wrapped it. FYI, on the back of most (all?) dash pieces, there are light colored rubber "hats" that cover posts. If you lose them taking parts off, you'll likely end up with a rattle or two. Once you pull the gauge cluster surround piece, you'll see them. Just make sure they're all accounted for. Probably want to remove them and keep them safe until you get the parts back.
What color/pattern are you hydro dipping?
