How to remove a trailblazer dash?

I spent the last 3hrs on here looking for something that tells how to take the dash out of a trailblazer, and I had no luck. Does anyone have any pics or is there a thread already for this? I'm taking my dash out and smoothing it and painting it...

Thanks.

If there isnt one, Make one. I am sure there are others that could use it. Like me in a few months, when I start my Envoy Dash Swap

I thought that was an Envoy... Dashes are a little different I thought...

Well it is a matter of time and lots of patience... But my 2 cents is that if you are trying to find a thread on how to remove it, to shave and paint it, it would be best to just leave it alone. It is a VERY long process and then to shave/paint a dash, it will likely crack due to heat/material and you will be saying WHAT WAS I THINKING... Not to mention the glare on your windshield and it doesn't ever come out good....

I am not being a jerk, I speak from experience with my Project car... It was a PAIN, and I wish I never did it, it was not worth it, and only causes problems.. Ive got a friend that did an older Camaro Dash due to cracks in the stock dash, and again it cracked and it was even a garage car... Just don't do it

My 2 pennys that's all

Lol... Thanks. I'm confident in my abilities to smooth the dash and paint it without it cracking... I appreciate it though... Here are a few pics of things I've done to it so far...

This is all I have....I got these pics from another thread a while back. I remember reading a full r&r procedure here before but couldn't find it (or the thread I got the pics from) tonight.

Thanks Drew. Shoot me a pic text if you get any more, or run across anything else. Appreciate it... I think I'll be fine...
