well its the thought that counts..

fine here -- the plastic pieces just grip and rip..be careful you dont smash em the wrong way putting them back on..if I can remember correctly on my truck it was just a socket not a torx..

yes the kick panels come out -- everything that touches the vinyl..

if you look into the cup holder pieces there should be a rubber piece pull that up..and either see some screws or this flat head lookin thing. Spin it and pull up..its some weird screw lock down thingy..easy to take out tho..

the pieces around the jump seats i believe are clips as well..that was one of the first pieces out of my truck..so its been 4-5 years..cant remember on those
