    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?

    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.:sign0020:
