    Looks awesome. I've never been happy with my interior color but the rest of the truck was perfect for me so I'm dealing with it. I'm going with the black & red racing theme & wanting to draw it to the inside. but I have that light cream colored interior. The silver pieces I was going to paint red, I'm not sure how to get the steering wheel parts or the gauge cover off yet. I've been toying arround with painting the rest of the interior black & covering the seats black with red inserts. But can't find a cover for the console. I have painted the interior of my old Mustang black but I used the gloss duplicolor black & it didn't look right. Interior black is a little more flat than that any suggestions on that?

    Yeah i want to know how to get the steering wheel silver pieces off also that's really only thing i need to paint. I have clear coated the grab handles since last time i just painted them and they turned out looking even better! I also did the 3 silver pieces on the dash where the glove box is and since i have a extended cab the button where you role the window down and the outside i will be done painting this week gloss black with clear coat and will be done prepping them tomorrow. I have painted a good bit on my truck and have got really good with a spray can now i just need a paint gun too hook up to the ole air compressor to really do a dman good job!

    I'm thinking about painting my own grille but not sure since i dont wanna mess it up?

    Today i took the rear dome light out in my extended cab which is in above the console and ther back seat and sanded the tan down and painted it gloss black and 3 coats of clear coat. I'll let it dry until tomorrow afternoon and install it in my truck. I have so far painted the grab handles to match the truck along with the 3 pieces on the glove box and now the overhead dome light. I have almost got the back door buttons to role the window up and down in my silverado prep for paint and should be done with them next week. I need someone to let me know how to take the painted silver pieces off on steering wheel to be paointed also.

    Thanks man. Yeah i have already done and put enough money into the outside of my truck so i'm color matching allot of the inside myself to have a custom clean look too it. I don't have allot planned for the inside other than color matched parts and a in dash screen. I had a alpine in dash 7 inch screen along with my python auto start with led screen and a super pro bass box with 2 12 kicker competion and kenwood amp. I kept all the wiring for it though so whenever i plan to get a 10 inch sub and small amp i'll do that dont need much bass. I also have tweeters power acoustic tweeters but other than that my inside is stock.

    I've seen a video on you tube... Think it was posted on this site but it showed a guy pulling the steering wheel off to put on a new wheel. But in his steps he had removed everything starting from the airbag & the silver pieces were about the last thing he removed, after watching that & thinking thats the order that I would have to go just to color match those pieces I voted to forget it. I wish I could find that video.

    Yeah i still have the part to paint where all the buttons are to role windows down on the doors to paint and where the front dome lights are where it displays the air bags on or off. Those 2 things and the back button control on the rear doors will be painted and will just maybe leave steering wheel alone for right now no hurrry haha and the bezel around radio and everything will need to be painted also but will be last thing i do since it's such big pieces to do myself.

    They all look good fellas. Thinking about getting a new rear bumper and painting the black pads to match. Door handles and tailgate handle are next though.

    I hear that man. I'm also wanting to paint my buschwacker tailgate cap for my tailgate but not sure if i wanna do it myself or not yet. I also wanna paint the front part of the bumper where the tow hooks go that has the plastic to match the truck. I'm going for the blacked out look but i want some chrome to not make the black just look plain.
