EDIT:More pics below (backside of trim)

Got all but the dash done. It, obviously, gives it a nice textured feel.

Used BBE's tut. I only used 2-3 screws per piece of trim. You can melt the stumps when you put them back through with a grinder on a dremel, glue (hot/super)... really anything. They get clipped down by the door handle a/w. Unless you have kids or something, no one is going to pull/peel them out.

looks good, but dont use hot glue, in the summer when the car gets really hot inside...it will melt again.

Yea. the middle one (on 1st new pic) is a good example of what it should look like after you cut off the end of the trim nubs. If you get rid of the excess that hold it in you can pop each one out (CAREFULLY) with a screwdriver or pencil.

Should I purty this thread up?

Outa curiosity, what'd you use to remove the plastic holding it in? I'm gonna try this soon. Have you done the dash?

iirc a utility knife and pliers. I'd recommend a dremel or the like, though.

I'm looking to do something like this soon. Would spray painting it with like two coats of flat black and then a couple coats of clear look good? I LOVE the look that the carbon fiber gives it, but I think flat black with clear over it would look alright....any ideas? BTW this will be in my new to be DD 2002 Impala LS w/ the Grey interior.
