I've got a question, when you are doing the vents, how do you get them out.. Is it like self explanitory once you get dash off, or can you get them out wihtout taking the dash off?

for the vents all you do is stick a flat head screwdriver in beside the vent pry it in towards the vent a little and pull the vent out and i didnt paint the whole vent i just did the outside part of it and to get the vent apart just squeeze the things on the sides of the vent that look like "V"s youll see once you get them out then it comes apart and you dont have you take the dash off to take out the vents

that looks awesome!! but 10 coats of clear?!?! you dont ever want taht to come off. my friend has a 94 s10 red with the gray 2tone and the whole interiior trim is hot rod green. looks just like yours but really friggin out of place. how did you sand your vents on the inside of the cross pieces?
