Default Dash disassembly?

i just ordered 2 rolls of 3m vinyl wrap to redo my interior and was wondering if anyone has any step by step pictures of how to take apart the dash with the lowest risk of snapping clips?


the 4 collums will be in carbon fiber wrap and the center piece and passenger straight piece will be brushed aluminum

THOUGHTS?

PICTURES WILL BE UP BY THE END OF THE WEEKEND....IF NOTHING BAD HAPPENS!

I survived the change of broken spark plugs in the F150....
But my transmission didn't make it to 75000 miles....

The junk tray? Remove the radio bezel, it will unveil 2 8mm bolts looking straight at you on the top.

A couple things I found while searching:

Here's a pic of the dash out: http://www.f150forum.com/f4/painted-dash-21751/

And an article with some exploded views and instructions on part of the dash removal: http://www.justanswer.com/ford/1klph...ross-dash.html

So from the looks of that diagram it seems that I can just pry off the front plate of where the air control stuff and the stereo is and then I unscrew the dump tray like that guy said. I couldn't tell if there was anyone clips or screws in the stereo bezel and I don't want to break anything
