Thread: Need some ideas

  1. #1

    Default Need some ideas

    Ok guys and girls; out of shear boredom tonight I have decided to come out and do some things on the truck.

    #1 was remove the LED strips from the doors, easy peasy lemon squeezy

    #2 Removal and replacing the overhead console with one from later year truck (05 Chevrolet)

    This is the one I took down, the #1 is pointing to a now large rectangular hole in the headliner where the back locks in.

    This is what I replaced it with. Far too short to cover up the now large hole in the headliner.

    Right now I have 2 choices that I know of,
    1) Get a new headliner (almost needed) for a later model truck
    2) install something big enough to fit, look flush, and work right.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

    Was thinking about a DVD player to stick there but it won't sit as flush as I'd like.

    Cut a chey emblem out of plexiglass white or colored . get a flat led put it in the hole and hook it to the dome light . Use double sided tape to put the emblem up and run the tape all around edge so it acts as a boarder

    Hang a GMTC calender over it. They should be out by the time you get out of boot camp.
