    So im not really liking the gray on black stock interior colors... Thinking about making everything that is gray in my truck... Barcelona Red. But im not too sure how id go about detaching some items like... The trim rings around my gauges or how id paint my glovebox and all those kind of things...

    Could this be a easy, One piece at a time slower coming together kind of project or nah? Im not down for ripping out my whole interior haha.

    You can do this, but I used to do this for a lot of people and see a lot. It is a LOT of work to do it right. You have to clean clean clean clean, then use adhesion promoter or some other type of good primer, then many many lights coats. I wouldn't paint either, I'd use a good quality dye like SEM. If you dont do a really good job, it will look like shit, it will peel, and there is no good way to fix it if you do it wrong I did a lot to my FJ and really took my time and used all professional quality products, and it still got scraped off in areas that saw abuse.
    In summary- not a fun job, easy to really screw it up, hard to return to stock if you hate it or screw it up.
