1) you have to take off the dash bezel, and theres about 5 or 6 screws under it to take off

2) take off the fuse cover, and theres a cover on the opposite end that looks the same, there are 2 screws there on each side

3) pull out the a/c vents, theres a screw behind each

4) to get the bar that runs above the air bag off, there are 2 white plastic tabs you have to push them in and pull it out....You get to the tabs after you pull out the ac vents

5) twist the sensor up front to remove it...and your done

I'm getting mine done pretty soon. I've got to raise some more money! But I'm doing the same thing you're doing SITNLO. I'm letting my painter paint it the same color as my truck cause I suck at it! I would like to paint the bezel a diff color other than my truck color like a two tone like Quiksilver did his but I don't know what color to go with? Does anybody know of a website that has factory colors that I could look at to get some ideas. That way if I find one like in another car brand I can get the paint code and he can go by that.

What sensor? The one for the headlights?

After a few months the primer will sink back down into the texture. The best thing is to get a D.A. sander with 180 grit and sand it until it's smooth then spray it with a plastic promoter and then with some good filler primer and wetsand it, it's easier that way, ALOT easier.
