    You wont be sorry! The triangle covers on the doors that hide the bolts for the door mirrors are
    what I would recommend doing to get an overall idea if your going to like the design for your interior. They wont cost you a fortune to dip.

    I have a couple burlwood films in stock and a carbon fiber. I can add a purple candy to them. Let me know what parts you have in mind.

    @sstoner911 Just out of curiosity, what kind of price would I be looking at if I wanted the dash bezel, and the 2 center console trim pieces done in carbon fiber? It would be the same 3 pieces as this truck has done, and I would have the texture sanded smooth beforehand.

    Thanks sstoner, I will be looking at this in the future.

    Too bad you don't have a Canadian location so me and pmf608 don't have to ship our parts so far!

    Wow, that's a great price considering I've looked into buying the hydrodipped dash pieces straight from GM, and it is over $600 for the set that way. Once I have the money to do this, I think I'll definitely get you to do those for me.

It can be buffed and waxed.

    Interior parts that are dipped should retain the finish for years - they arent subjected to the sun as much if at all.

    Exterior parts you can expect to last as long as your paint on your vehicle generally - I know guys here in Arizona with dipped spoilers that have had them for 5 years and the look like they did they put them on. I guess your mileage will vary depending what elements its subjected to.

    The clear we use has a UV protection.


    This is a bow riser that we dipped - the owner has another bow that was dipped 7 years ago and he said the finish is as good as the day he brought it home.

    The pattern is Predator Brown Decpetion
    That looks cool as hell. Can you dip arrow shafts? Mine are black and sticking out by not being camo. Oh I like the Jeep dash too.



    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    All the stuff looks great. I am definately thinking that I may eventually have to find some things to send to you and get done.

    That is a good question. Of course they are paintable so you could dip them, I am not sure if it would affect the flight? I am not a big bow hunter so I am not sure about the arrow shaft and dipping. I will ask a someone I know tho who has a bow shop.
