interior question

ok i have a few questions before i get to customizing my interior ... i have a 1LT and it has the black fabric door and trim package and i was wondering has anyone taken the fabric off the trim pannels to see what the plastic is like under it the reason im asking this is because i want to paint it victory red like my car and if i can simply tear off the fabric and paint it and get the same look it would save me about 350 bux. also i want to get the grey plastic arond my steering wheel dipped in carbon fiber and i want to know how hard is it to take the steering wheel apart to get to it and my final question is are the connectors behind the door pannel in a 1LT for the ambialight? it doesent come with the ambialight and i would like to have it. thank you all.

I'm actually amazed that you asked that about the fabric on the dash/door trims. I was just wondering that myself yesterday and was planning on starting a thread today. Might have better luck asking the question in the cosmetic modification subforum though. It feels like there is some slight padding under the fabric as well. I'm very tempted to take the small dash panel and rip it apart.

Not sure if the connectors are there for ABL. I know it's been asked and answered and I think the answer was "no" but I can't recall for sure. Help!

The plastic in the cloth door inserts is flimsy crap. I took mine out of my 1SS, threw them away and installed 2SS silver doors/dash inserts from GM.

ABL

The 1LT does not have the connectors, but if you pm 2SSRS he makes the plug and play for the lights. I got this from him and it worked perfectly.

i plan on taking out my cloth trim inserts and replacing them with the switchblade silver inserts from gmpartsdirect.com. they have the cheapest price so far....$320 i think.
