Questions: Debadging + Plastic Interior

So I have 3 Large scheme questions:
1: Does a 2007 Ford Ranger's tailgate "ford" and "ranger" emblems have holes that the will leave if I remove them?
as I don't have the money/knowhow to fill those holes, so I would like to know beforehand. I know some years do and some don't,
and was unable to find anything specificaly saying a 2007 does/doesn't.

2: Can I repaint/recolor the plastic interior parts of my ranger?(things like the dashboard and inside the door)? My truck is black,
and the inside is an ugly brown which i hate, but if it's not too hard/expensive, and just takes time/love, i'll do it.

3: I have a friend who has a 2001 Ranger, and his has 2 and 1/2 doors, yet mine does not. I dunno if that wasn't on option that they made,
or just not what the original buyer chose not to do (I'm the 3rd owner), But I was curious if people have made the back xl portion into doors?
Not that I have the money probably necessary to do so.

1. Yes there are alignment holes under the emblems

2. Yes you can. In fact multiple people have sprayed the dash black. Most use SEM products

3. It is an option to have the doors. If yours doesn't not much you can do.

Thanks for the response! Are there alignment holes under both of them, or just the ford emblem?

There may not be holes but have fun blending the fresh paint behind the emblem to the faded paint on the rest of your truck, it may not look faded but it will when you remove the emblem.

1. all the ovals should have alignment pins on the tailgate... i think.

1a. the ranger badges for fenders usually have alignment pins, but i can't remember on the tailgate badges off hand.

2. i painted some interior parts of my ranger with duplicolor fabric & vinyl paint. every type of "good" or plastic paint would never dry (even after months of curing) then i found the fabric & vinyl paint... worked like a charm & keeps its shine for a few years even when you don't care for it properly (i got lazy & didn't spray clean mine as often as i should)

Under my 2005 there were 3 holes under the side badge. The one in the middle was very large, and the badge had no alignment pin that went into it. My tailgate badge also had 3, the ford badge had 3 pins on it. Front badge had 3 pins and holes.
