You can get some plastic panel tools from www.selectproducts.com. Might have to call to order.

Damn I'm too late. I got something very similar to the master kit (probably made by the same company) on ebay for $20.

Those EAS ones are expensive. I have similar ones but I got 10 pieces for $20 in varying degrees of pliability. They only thing that sucks is they don't necessarily last a long time.

Center console trim will just lift out of place. To remove the console or armrest - that's quite a bit of work ahead of you, there's duct work for the rear AC vents.
