With the readio removed and the glove box out, it's easy to get in behind everything. The instrument panel is more or less held on by the chrome surrounding the heater controls. Once that's off (it's held in place by a couple of nuts), the chrome comes off and the wood will be easy to remove.
As for the side panel vents, they're held in place with a spring type retaining wire thing. Sorry, that's as technical as it gets. I wouldn't know this as gospel, as mine were long gone, and the vents were just stuck up in there.
Ignition key - the plastic surround will be "stuck" to the wood, but not with glue. Gentle pressure will remove it. The plastic's not attached to the ignition lock assembly.
