hey guys just wondering if anyone has a link to a step by step removal of the plastic dash surround in a VT/VX? preferably with pictures because i have no idea how it all works.

i'm doing this so i can paint it piano black but the painter i know said leave it in and just tape it up because its a bitch to get out and you'll most likely break a couple clips getting it out but if theres a good tutorial then why not...plus i hate the whole idea of just taping something up and painting around it

i was thinking about doing mine bermuda blue to match the outside but wasn't sure if i would then have to do the guage face aswell to break up the darker colours, so i left it, but now that a job from phreddy is on the cards (ohyeah) i'm thinking it may be worth the effort
:p

if your painter doesn't know what piano black is, then he should find a new profession.....
its a really high gloss black
