I want to remove the paneling on the front pillars that are marked airbag and wondered if anyone has done this?
I don't want to setup off the airbags and was wondering if anyone has done this and what happened?

Yes, I did this on my 2012 Volt years ago.

I disconnected the 12 volt battery first. I then pried off the the plastic cover - part 1 in the picture below. The picture is of the passenger side, but you get the idea. I used my fingernail to pry off part 1, and had sore nails for several days, but did not damage any plastic. After removing bolt 2, the panel came off easily. I used a semi-stiff wire to poke up from the fuse box area by the OBDC connector to the base of the A-pillar. I could then pull the dashcam wire through, and connect it to the proper place in the fusebox.

I was careful to route and secure the dashcam wire so that it would not be in the way of the airbag.

There is 12v up at the airbag display and what not. I do not remember what pin so you will have to test it out. One is only live when the car is on and works perfect for my camera.
