I think I will start working on my interior next. I want to attempt something like this:

Not white and I wouldn't have the airbrushed crap (solid color), but maybe a silver or gunmetal color. I love the way it shines and is so slick looking. I love it.

That's what I am talking about. My stupid truck has the bench without the folding armrest. I got screwed. I am trying to find one like MC's...

Good luck, it's a time consuming process to smooth out and paint a plastic interior. It looks badass in the end though. :yup:

eh im not a fan of painted dashboards. Id rather wrap mine then paint it. I wish our trucks came with better looking interior. The dash is almost too boxy to do anything

That just fucking rawks. I really like that color and look. That's about the color I am thinking of doing. I'll probably just take it one piece at a time. I know it will take forever, but it will be worth it, IMO.

That same dude had his whole interior orange before he painted it silver...check these out...

Wont that glossy paint be a road hazard?? lol.

I'm sure quite a glare can form..........


I'd like to have mine covered in padded leather like these:



that would be nice but in the summers here it would be tought to keep it up


eliminate glare while driving...

^^^^^^^^^ i did that to my s-10 and it sucked MAJOR balls. i fucked up so much shit on that dash its not even funny.

what i want to do is go to a junk yard and get a spare dash and smooth that one out and paint it. so i dont have to worry about pulling my dash out and having to get it done in a weekend or any thing like that.
