Candyman would be a good person to ask, but he's out for a while, you may want to ask WWPTC, he'll have some good advice too. honestly i want to change my interior too but i dont want to paint it just in case something happens to where i gotta put her back the way she came. lol i use vinyl wrap, i'll be changing the headliner too but other then that every thing else i'm doing is reversible.

The first gen (under 2006) have door panels that can be seperated to cutomise fairly easy. You can see how to take them apart on MrMikes PT Doors
Both generations are like lego blocks. You will be surprised at how much you can remove without any tools..lol The door panels have a few screws in them but most parts just snap in/out using all sorts of clips and pins.
