Disarming seat airbags & console removal

I love the sound of the Coyote and the GT500 Axelbacks.

Road noise is the enemy.

When I had the back of the car apart to install the Silverhorse quarter window louvers, I took the opportunity to add Dynamat insulation to the spare tire well, trunk, fenderwells and rear seat area.

I was impressed with the dramatic results and since I’m replacing the near bald, 25,000 mile Pirelli P-Zero Nero mud/snow tires this weekend, (upgrading to 245/45 R19 Continental DW Extreme Contact) I decided to go all out and ordered another box of Dynamat to do the under carpeted areas of the cabin, for the full effect.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the seats and avoid setting off the side air bags?

Any help in yanking the center console would also be helpful.
Here’s some pix of what I have already accomplished with the Dynamat in round one.

Your advice is appreciated.

I've been looking in to putting Dynamat in my 2012. From what I've read, pulling the door panels and putting Dynamat inside the doors will yield big gains. I would do that before taking out the seats/carpet. If you're wondering, drive down the freeway with the windows closed and radio off. If you listen, you can hear a lot of road noise coming in through the doors.

One trick I saw, buy a small paint roller from the Dollar Store and remove the outer "fuzzy" part. It's a lot cheaper than paying $14 for the "real" roller from Dynamat.

I actually DID do the inside of the door skins with the Dynamat.

Concurrent with the Silverhorse racing quarter windows project I replaced the factory rear shelf speakers and the door speakers too. Left the factory woofers alone.

Holy Crap, did that improve the factory woofers or what ?
