    Perfectly stock?
    Got a free bottle of Rain-X Ceramic detailer thanks to another post here.

    Advanced even drove it to my house for FREE.

    I did the console so there’s really no point in removing it since you have to cut through two sections of it (the interior piece and the outer piece).

    That part is even easier. I thought you meant the dash section in front of the shifter. The console is just 2 x 10mm bolts under the pad and 2 screws under the cup holder. 2 more screws and the MT shifter boot section pops out. I mounted some stuff underneath so I removed the clips from the cup holder. It still snaps in but not as enthusiastically and makes it much easier to clean. There’s lots of room under the console bracket(what the 2x10mm bolts go into) for all sorts of things if you don’t have the inverter there. Not having to vacuum in/on/under the seats is the other benefit. Nice job.

    Picked up a new Lower Instrument Panel from the local dealer at a decent price and spent the past week cleaning up and redoing my auxiliary wiring/push buttons. Also replaced both OEM cigarette outlets with a new voltmeter/quick charge USB and proper 12v outlet, moved the radio Aux/USB Outlet over, and installed a dimmer knob.

    Still better than many other aftermarket bumpers out there that decrease approach angle by like 60%
