The door sills were originally painted to match the truck, but they were getting scratched up too easy so I decided to spray them with the spray on bedliner in a can. They have a subtle texture to them, and the black adds a nice contrast to the red interior. Pictures of the 06 GTO center console temporarily set in for fitting, this came with the GTO interior we bought.

Originally Ralph painted the calipers with the Duplicolor caliper paint kit, It only lasted a year and It faded badly. I repainted the calipers with 1Shot pinstriping enamel, victory red is the color. Then I decided to paint the rear shocks red on the bottom and black on top, they are Bilstein shocks so originally they were blue and yellow.
Recently I have been getting into polishing, so I bought a large buffer and multiple types of rouges. I polished the throttle body, ac drier, air intake tube, and MAF sensor, these are the first pieces I have ever done so they are not perfect.

Thanks guys for all the compliments, It means a lot to me because this thread is a lot of work lol!!
We took the door panels apart, and started stripping them down and sanding them. The door panels come apart in two pieces, they are just glued together. A die grinder made quick work of the hardened glue, I attempted to cover the inserts in black vinyl but failed miserably lol!! We ended up taking them to the Amish, and they did an awesome job covering them and they only charged $50 for the pair.
The headliner was also removed, and taken to the Amish to be upholstered black to match the door inserts. Pictures to follow once we get it back, they are still working on it.

It's been a while since I last updated, we've been working on the truck nonstop. Ralph has been sanding and painting like a mad man, the following pictures are of the sun visors, rear door panels, and a 2006 GTO center console which Ralph fiberglassed and modified to fit into the Colorado.

We also bought some autometer gauges from Summit Racing, and we also bought the sending unit adapters from Auto Meter for mechanical gauges to work with LS swaps.
Next thing we bought was a rear sway bar set up for 04-10 Colorado, $183.00 from Summit Racing for the complete kit. To date we haven't driven the truck with the sway bar installed, so I cannot comment on the ride.........YET.
