Default Removing "wood" console & armrest trim-'99 GTZ

I'm going with a different color contrast than the plastic wood look,& would like to ask you guys if it would be OK to lightly sand & paint these pieces.Or,will that Krylon Fusion paint work on this? Its sposed to bond with plastic w/o the need for sanding & primer. ->But 1st,I need to get these pieces removed without any damage,so is there any how-to instructions on this? -Anyway,I'm going with black & carbon fiber accents in my grey interior. ...Any advice would be great.

okay if I am getting this straight I think you are speaking of the trim around the radio and the trim around the shifter? You basically just have to lightly pry up the edges with a thin object, like a screw driver

the radio and the trim around the shifter that's all there is to it. To remove the trim on the doors you first have to remove the door panels, and then the wood trim is held on from behind with screws

OK,thanx! I'll save the door panel removal for last,when I have more time. I've been working on the vette,upgrading the Galants brakes and fixing an ABS sensor,& getting my garage squared away.I've epoxy sealed the concrete floor I poured last year.It was covered with tarps all winter.I cut,painted & installed panels that go around the perimeter of the sunken parking area,& I will be running wire for new outlets & lighting.Then I get to insulate the whole inside,& put up wall board,slat wall and pegboard.With only the garage door as an entrance right now,when I go in there the temp varies between 80 to 110* in there with bare uninsulated framing
