Ok this might sound like a stupid question, butit's in the way of me finishing a paintjob.

How do i remove the two bits of the dash as follows:

The bit with the fusebox on it.

and

The bit the glovebox goes into.

I'm having no luck, pretty much everything else is out and painted but these two panels :(

thankyou.

Let me start off and say i don't have much (read: any) experience with cars so far, and this is my first major project. I'm re-doing my entire interior with black and blue. I've already taken apart, prepped, and painted over half thethings i need to do, re-covered all fabrics with blue vinyl etc, all i need is a little help from those who have taken apart their cars and are more experienced than me. I knowthat in the end it's going to look great (will post pics when i'm done :wink: )

Here is the stage i'm at now, i don't know what everything's called, but the stuff that is still there in the pics, i want to take out, and i'm unsure how.

Any help would be great. Thankyou for your continuing support in this endevour.
