How to remove the gray dash side pieces?

Anyone know? Do they just pop off? I'm wanting to wrap mine in vinyl. It's the pieces with the air vents in them and headlight switch.

Also, the same color piece that goes around the radio and is surrounded by the wood grain piece. I guess it by itself comes off? I'm wrapping that also.

Yes, it pops right off. Grab firmly right above the parking brake release, and pull towards you, and slightly upwards. There is like 6 clips holding it on.

Once you have it off, there are two clips each holding the headlight switch and the dimmer switch, and then there are 4 clips holding the air vent, and then another 4 clips holding the chrome trim piece.

Honestly, I would be skeptical about wrapping them with vinyl. I have thought about painting mine Dark Copper Metallic, though.

Thanks, yeah I figured it out the other day. They just pop off. The passenger side is easy but the driver side helps if you unbolt the two 7mm bolts that hold the gauge surround on. I wrapped mine the other day but I'll probably get them painted eventually. I like the way they look.

That looks really good. Did you do any other parts or just those?
