OK so I started today planning on painting my door panels and dash trim. Following one of the DIY I was able to get my door panels off in just under an hour. Here are a couple shots of Kaylee with her panels off.

So after I got all of these panels off I went to unscrew the door inserts. Well it turns out that only 3 screws hold the inserts in place, but about two dozen melted plastic studs.

Needless to say I was pretty PO'd with the situation. But I figured that while I had the door panels off I could do a mod that I had put on the back burner about a year ago. I used some AAC ABL colored LED strips and tied the wiring into the ambient lighting. So while I didn't get to paint, the day wasn't a total loss.

Day 2 of my modding marathon is almost over. Depending on how things play out tomorrow I may be painting my wheels, but Just need to see if I have the time to do it all.
