    the hard part is the chrome in the cab. I hated the chrome around the shifter, sometimes it would blind me with the reflected sunlight. After I wrapped that with the brushed steel textured wrap, I did the bezels around the air vents in the dash and then I did the Toyota logo in the middle of the steering wheel. only chrome left is the beveled edge around the shifter. pretty hard to do so I may never get it done, lol.

    I miss-spoke. First to go was the chrome around the cup-holders. (as if it matters)

    Is there a write up about how to dechrome the interior parts? I would love to have no chrome on the inside. Bad design to have all that blinding chrome on the inside!

    http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/...d-Steel-1-52-m-x-25-m-?N=5799+3294576361&rt=d

    Never saw a write up but here is some information:
    1) the product I chose (link above) is a fairly close match to the textured finish already in the cab, just align the grain vertically like it is in the cab (esthetically, I would dislike too many clashing finishes in the cab)
    2) this is a "non-invasive" mod, if you do not like it or do a crappy job you can peel it off and start over. The wrap on the chrome around the cup holders took me 5 tries, the first vent bezel took me 3.
    3) this is an inexpensive mod. With the tools I bought (Home Depot) and the product, +shipping, I spent under $50.00.
    4) there are a lot of utube videos to watch and learn from.
    5) the material is 60" wide and sold by the ft. so one ft. of material is enough to do a lot of truck interiors.

    The tools I bought were a set of three plastic Bondo applicators and several different sizes of plastic putty knives. I practiced by applying the wrap to a hammer head at the kitchen table. You will need a hair blower for heat and an exacto-knife with sharp new blades. For the bezels around the vents I precut doughnut shaped pieces. The hardest one was the steering wheel emblem and I am not fully content with my efforts there and may redo it sometime in the future.

    Have fun and good luck...

    I just washed all pieces I was painting, then whipped down with windeX to make sure no grease or wax left over...then just sprayed about 6 coats of the plasti dip light costs to start it actually dried much faster then I thought

    Gotcha. If you don't mind, I'm curious to see how the difference in color goes. I bet it looks great. If it's a hassle, no worries.

    It's pouring out now, but I can tomorrow try to take a few pics, there is a slight color difference if you look close but honestly from a distance you can't tell.
