Knupsel's 06 Mazda 6 "Broke Man Edition"

Hey there people!
I just about 3 months ago bough a slightly used 06 M6i, with 120km (not miles!) and at first I wasnt to sure about the car, the exterior was rather mediocre in my opinion, but the interior of the car was amazing, and sold me on it.
So about 1.5 months ago I started to mod some stuff, first I wanted subs so I got those installed! Now I got 2 12' and 1200 watt MTX Terminators in my car. And for the price of 350$ for the subs, amp and box I wasn't expecting much, but damn was I wrong! Those subs are amazing for that price tag!
So now with the sound of the car I am rather happy and decided to venture on to some exterior work. I admit as a first time modder my skill level is rather small *cough cough* so i started out with small stuff.
Plasti dipping my front and rear emblems came first.
Being quite happy with the result i decided i could move on and remove the door guards, and all said and done and about 40 mins of rubbing of glue of the right side of the car i started thinking of the Mazda, no no MY Mazda, as an awesome car and with the right tweaks could very well be my dream car.
Now feeling more confident about myself i decided it was time to think of a theme for my car, i decided on silver and black, classic but still awesome.
So i smoked my side markers and my rear reflectors, which i was really happy with also. Then i read all about the whole carbon fiber wrapping and decided to give it a shot, i now wrapped the door handle trim, the dashboard trim pieces and the door pillars of my car. All said and done. I felt quite confident and did the airbox mod which also gave me more knowledge about my car and how to work on the bumper and remove the grill and all.
Now i am in the middle of tinting my rear lights, which likely will be completed by this time tomorrow!

Haha the completely blacked out look is what I wanna move away from!
I think imma plasti dip some interior stuff. The door handle and dash board trim first.
Then the cruise control area on the steering wheel, and if I can figure out how to remove the mirror control housings, those too!
Any more suggestions? Or how can I get the mirror controll housings out?

So for example on the drivers side, inside the little niche that is used to pull the door closer, there is a screw.
is that the screw you mean?
And if I unscrew that the control housing will come out?

Okay my attempt at plast dipping interior pieces white failed miserably!
Plasti dip does not stick well to interior parts!
It looked alright, except there were LOTS of little bubbles!
So I will do the regular 3 step method sometime next week!

Alright so now some of my interior is painter white!
The areas around the door handle and the door lock, the two little pieces left and right of the horn (Cruise and normally volume control) And the door pull thing's trim are white!
Thise time I did it the proper way and it came out nicely!
Even though one of my idiot friends botched a couple of times, but he is incompetent with his hands so it's alright lol
I'll put pictures up once I find my actual camera!
My iPhone sucks at pictures

In Calgary you can get away with tinting your front windows to the point where you are still barely visible!
The back and rear windows I can do as black as I want

Okay so i have now ordered my HID kit, Black chrome colored aluminium floor mats, alluminium Mazda 6 scuff plates and a Dynomat license plate kit to stop my license plate from rattling sooo much!
All i gotta do is wait for them to be shipped.
