what are you masking off..? it's best to remove pieces because you'll get overspray inside your car... but it's up to you. and from my experience, plastidip on the interior pieces doesn't work well.

i removed the vent surrounds, the handle bezels, the handle covers, corner vents, and dome light surround. there's also the glove box cover, and cover under the steeering wheel that i might do soon. the center console is removable but is a pain to get back in. the radio bezel is also an option, i just still have the oem deck. oh, and also the guage bezel. i'm sure there's a couple other things i missed.
in reality, everything is removable, it's just not convinient when you're doing this to a daily driver.

but i definitely need better mpg. i'm only getting 28.5
FYI, spark plug wires wont really give you better mpg unless they are messed up ive been told. Im going to fill up today to see what my mpg is, but I know I could be around 40 if I didnt have my subs and 17s. lol Last time I calculated it I got 33, but I think it will be atleast 35 now because I took the roofrack off. What I should have done after I bought the car was spend 400 on a complete exhaust system and CAI and then be done. lol
