Default PlastiDip Interior Trim?

Has anyone plastidipped their interior trim? I have the orange XV and I wanna spray the silver trim to be orange to match the outside. I didn't know if anyone had any experience with taking the trim out and maybe some advice for a newbie haha.

I'm thinking about it and it doesn't look too hard. I got a set of trim removal tools and those pop the piece above the glove box and by the steering wheel off. You can remove the small knock out panels on the sides of the dash where the doors touch when closed to push at them from behind if needed.

If you have the little silver piece on the shift knob, that's glued on and pops off. You'll need to glue it back on after, which is a pain. I'd recommend just taping the knob and spraying it while still on. That small mirror looking metalic trim on the very bottom pops off and reveals a small clip that holds the knob on.

The shift plate bezel on the console also pops off, but requires sliding back the arm rest console and cup holders.

Finally, if you have the small silver trim on the steering wheel, you need to take the steering wheel off to access that. It's held on by a small phillips screw that can only be accessed from behind either by removing the steering wheel or drilling a small access hole from behind.

You'll have to post pictures of the finished project. I'm thinking of doing some of my interior trim as well. Little nervous about it but atleast with plasti-dip it isn't a permanent change if it goes wrong. Can't wait to see the orange.

Once my supplies come in on Monday, I'll be able to start painting. Plan is to paint the two easy to remove trim pieces first with Mango Plastidip from DipYourCar.com. From there it'll be bit by bit until there is not any silver left

I have 3 cans of the plasti-dip in black... going to paint the chrome pieces on the front end first.. just bought the 3D Maxpider floor mats for the car as well. I'll post pictures and mention how they fit once I get them installed.

All the supplies are in and it looks sunny enough tomorrow that I can start. I figured out how to get some of the trim out, but the trickier ones like the silver around the vents and the shift bezel will have to wait till I'm a little more adventurous. I got the Go Mango from Dipyourcar. Seems like a pretty good fit to the Orange Tangerine Pearl of the car haha.

Next step is to plasti dip the interior silver things around the vents. If anyone has any questions on how to do any of this, I can post the links to the videos I've been following.
