    That's a nice truck you got there. I'm really digging those sliders. If I drive out to Hinton do you think you could hook me up with a set?

    That'd be awesome! I'm not in a rush since I haven't actually bought my tundra yet. I've gotta upgrade from my tacoma by this summer so I'm shopping around while I have time.

    My driver side (right side of steering wheel) vent was loose and wouldn’t stay in position. So I crazy glued just these two ends near the red lid, then kept moving the vent position until glue was dried. It is nice a tight now, score!

    OPERATION BLACKOUT.

    I clean the parts with spray nine and scrub with a proper fashioned 45 degree toothbrush head. Then rinse with water. Pretty good outcome I’d say ok a 12 year old truck with 480k

    I make sure I sand the entire surface evenly with 120 grit.

    Then spray thin layers of Napa flat black spray paint until coated.

    Plastic painting strategies include skipping the primer step. With past experience spray painting plastics, priming doesn’t seem to work too well. I think I’ll give this a shot and see how it goes.

    Well that was a bit of work, but well worth it. I dash mounted my cb radio and brake controller while the dash was apart.

    For spots I don’t want painted, I use 3m masking tape with plastic backing.

    Actually it came factory with power folding. I cheated out on my tow mirrors and didn’t ordered power folding. I probably will upgrade at some point when the rest of the things I need to do are finished. They are all scratched to hell now anyway with all the beatings haha

    Got the top of the door blacked out. The ‘flat black’ vinyl spray turned out quite shiny. But that’s fine, as my arm sits there so it won’t be flat anyway haha. I am wondering if I should paint the bottom grey pieces matte black to match the rest, or paint quicksand to match the bedliner that’s going on the truck body... Thoughts?

    Thought I’d post the masking process of the door panel’s.
    This scotch blue plastic backed tape is the greatest masking secret of all!

    Today I found these left over pieces of plastic (from the mud flaps I made) and cut them into a center console divider.

    After realizing the little tray would fit into the divider, I modified to make it fit.

    So stoked on this free, 15 minute upgrade!
