Exclamation Wood panel removal?

Hello , i have a 2005 bmw x5 , 3.0L
i was planning on buying 3m carbon fiber wrap and i was wondering if i could take off the wood panels in the car and wrap them separately without them being on the car , or im going to just have to do my best at wrapping them as they are .

The strips on the doors and dash pop off. GENTLY pry behind them, working from both ends. I think the console has some screws holding it in place. Not sure about the ashtray cover.

Remove them to wrap, outside the car. The console takes some work to remove.

I use an old credit card to pop off the wood grain pannels and worked awsome for me and doesn`t damage them at all ,just take your time. (DON`T USE A METAL FLAT SCREW DRIVER OR PRY BAR YOU WILL DAMAGE THEM).
