Default Painting all trim

I have starting to take all trim off my car. My seatbelt bolt on passanger side is rusted stuck and stripped any ideas on how to get it off.
Also how to i get the brake release handle off so i can remove bottom trim.

I also was thinking of doing a bed liner on my roof any thoughts?

Also took off black trim at doors any good ways of getting the last bit of adhesive off.

Anyone know of a good site to get tail light replacements preferably LEDs or all led replacements really.

So far just getting into it will be sanding paint to get ready to paint the exterior would like to do urethane on the exterior i am nto going to be crazy prep work so is it worth it? or just do a simple acrylic.

I was going to the bed liner on the back trim at cargo door and the lower foot trim. Vinyl fabric spray paint at doors. still dont have an exact plan for this just yet.

Any thoughts are good. This is going to be a 2-3 week process so all feedback is good.

This is what I did for tail lights. I wanted something I could change bulbs on if an LED ever burnt out instead of an aftermarket all-in-one sealed unit that looks like junk with the individual LED's start dying...

I love how you did those tail lights Red. I am no genius, and I really do not understand how you did those. lol But if I did, I would do the same thing to mine. Awesome job. I have read every word in your thread. Great build man!

What color is that tan color?
Ma and a buddy put carbon fiber vinyl wrap in my hood and it worked out okay, I tried it on the roof but was only able to get the front half. If I had bought a better quality vinyl I think it would have worked out.
