I think I might have gone over it in the plasti-dip thread, but maybe not, i just remember it took me a while to figure out. Basically, you unscrew the box they're all in off the center dash section, then pop up the little tabs on the wheel part, and just pull them off. Then you have just the rings, and the little orange piece pops out of those. Spray, reassemble, and voila. You can't do the middle part, you just have to order either the STi limited or s204 black center parts.

As for the auto climate control stuff, it's an 05 wrx dash. The car has a full wrx swap, sorry if I didn't mention that, so yes, the auto climate control does work. I'll try and dig up an old thread about it, but long story short, we swapped everything mechanical basically, including the subframes. Thats why those STi wheels fill the wheel wells so wickedly

Believe it or not, the car started as a 93'L with a tan interior. Now it's a bastard child of 93, 01, version5, wrx, and STi stuff haha.
