Center handle removal.

Pulled the trip off the side. It pulls off from the front. Two hooks on the rear then release.

Two bolts hold the center handle to the dash.
Once they are removed, you can rotate the handle to remove it.

Pulled the airbag. First had to release the glove box limit strap. its on a spring so it will fly up into the dash when removed.

Then you can move it down and out of the way so you can get at the two bolts holding the airbag. Once these are removed you can pull the airbag up and slightly to the rear so you can see inside and remove the connector. There is a red locking triangle piece of plastic that has to be removed first, then it pulls apart. Then the airbag can be removed fully.

The dash end trim pieces were removed giving access to the three bolts there.

While I had the cupholder out, I took the time to "tune it". I lubed it to make sure it was free and noted that the reason it was not opening easily was drag between the bottom of the curved articulated arm and the case. So I used my Dremel to trim the bottom of the articulated arm. Now the cup holder pops fully open every time. Works perfectly.

Have the center console, forward console, lower dash, airbag, boomarang and the sides pulled now. I have about half the dash mounting bolts pulled as well. Enough for today

Looks like there no end to tinkering with your toy. Surprised to see GXP floor mats are still in place. Woulda thought they'd be themed by now.

I have several sets of daily driver mats. I also have a set of custom mats that say Punisher in red on the left and Pontiac on the right side.

Got my new "baby windrestrictor" delivered tonight. Pics tomorrow. Stephen did a great job with it. It's a custom piece of edge lit art for my desk. It's a mineature version of the Punisher WR and I think you will appreciate it!

Rob if you don't mind me asking, what was the motivation for the smaller WR? I was thinking of the same thing but maybe for a different purpose. Just wondering.

I have two edge lit art pieces, one in the Punisher garage and one in the Punisher basement man cave.

I wanted a smaller piece of Punisher art that I could easily take to work and could also use at car shows. For a full display, I show the car, truck and trailer. All are painted in the same colors and theme. The truck has a full sized bed and a cover. I am getting set up to show the Thomas Jane Punisher movie inside the bed of the truck and will also put the miniature Punisher windrestrictor in there so it will show well.

I just painted the stand and will get some pictures to post this afternoon.

It turned out very nicely. Big enough to have great visual impact but small enough to be easily transported.

LOL

You can feel free to come down and spin wrenches on the car when ever you want. Nothing like hands on . . .

I am hoping to get the dash out this weekend and get started on pulling the seats so I can get at the floor under the carpet.
