if someone has ever used armeral you will find the paint will not stick due to the silicon base in the armeral.

try using prepsole aka wax and greese remover. befor painting

Depends what paint your are usng aswell.

But yes products used on the dash to condition it can still be there. there are quite a few products out there to remove this.

put your hand up between the trim and the door and give it a hit upwards at the top of the trim.

You'll find the rubber strip is attached to the top of the doortrim, so when you do what millard said, the rubber strip will come out with the doortrim

also, the first coat of anything on your dash plastics should be an etch primer.

Thats what I've aways done, prepsol to clean it, then etch primer and then your top coats.
