I always thought about just finding an older obs with charcoal interior and just pulling everything, but that actually just sounds a lot easier amd cheaper.

I used dupli-color. i went on there website and saw a project they did and it came out very nice. went to the auto store the next day and picked up a can of duplicolor vinyl and fabric paint and a can of there adhesion promotor. right now i only got about half of the dash done but am working on doing everything. it actualy came out looking like it came black from the factory. just make sure you wash everything very good first to get all the amorall or whatevers baked onto your dash off.

Looks great! I'm slowly working on blacking out my interior. I have black/grey seat covers, and got some of the black Dupli-Color vinyl paint but i haven't gotten around to painting anything yet. I wanna go with a grey/black theme and maybe throw some red accents also to go with the color of my truck.

Let us know about the floor covering..I just tried a ACC Vinyl floor...it was supposed to be molded..wasn't very molded and fit like crap. Seems ACC makes all the carpet kits also..so if you get a kit let us know about fitment.

They might've but i've never seen one. All the ones i've seen are captain chairs with a center console.

I'd love to do an interior swap like that but i'm not sure what all i can do an in ext. cab since the seats have to go up for people to get in the back. :dunno:

How is the quality of the duplicolor black paint? Will it hold up to normal "truck usage" or will it just flake and scratch off?

It really seems to be holding up good. Just spend a lot of time preping the plastic first. The only bad part is that the color of your interior is that color all the way through the plastic. So if you were to make a deep scratch you will see gray or what ever colors under it. I'll have pics up by the end of this weekend of it finished. Also I was woundering how newer leather ford seats would bolt up. Do you have to make new holes in the floor? I also feel like they are wider
