    I have a 2014 CM limited and was wanting to take apart the dash to wrap many pieces of it with vinyl. Where would I start? I'm wanting to wrap the wood grain, all silver pieces, and all chrome with a matte charcoal metallic. It's the same exact color as my truck (MGM) but with no shine to it.

    I haven't started yet, but I like to have a game plan before tackling something like this so I'm not wasting any time. Any advice?

    What I mean by where do I start is, what do I take off first to be able to access some of the bolts that hold these pieces in? I know I can just pop out the radio and AC controls, but after that I'm lost.

    The instrument cluster bezel just pops off by pulling it towards you. Just lower the steering column as much as possible before you pop it.
    The knee bolster on the Driver side pops out after removing 2 10 mm bolts.

    Start at the bottom. You'll have to pop out the left panel the one that goes all the way to the "dead pedal" and connects to the door sill, unscrew the bolt behind it then unscrew the bolt all the way to the right. Everything else pops out pretty easily. Don't forget two wiring harnesses you have to unplug and disconnect the "column cover" that fills in the gap between the dash gauges and your steering wheel. (They're held on by 5 or 6 retainers) just stick your finger in the gauge holes after youve pulled the dash out a bit. You'll feel the retainers. Just push down on them and pull dash out. Easy enough once you know where everything is. Pops right back on.

    Sounds easy enough... The dash is the only thing that hasn't been completely pulled out of my Tundra so I had no idea where to begin. I'll try to get it done this weekend. Thanks!
