Pull out old bulb. Put new ones where they came from. They're behind the dash for gauges and under for feet.

Never really painted anything before so what do you mean by prep? Should I just clean it off very well and just paint? I know with metals and all gotta sand it down does that apply as well for this?

This looks awesome!! Thinking about doing it to mine... I think the black rims and black body would be nice, also thinking about doing the fender flares. Did it affect the balance of the tires? How is it holding up?

All I used was soap and water to clean the interior before I started with the Krylon Fusion. So far its holding up very well. I have kids that kick the panels and a wife who loves to do the tough mudders competition so its been scratched, kicked, covered with mud, and washed many times since I first painted it. The thing I like the most is that I will never need armor all to shine my interior, just a damp cloth to wipe off the dust from time to time. Hope this helps!

Oh yea got new matching seat covers and painted my sons seat with the same krylon fusion to match lol


Dont Judge me! haha

White just means you can pick almost any color you want. But this setup would work with white and black. I think it would look very good. might be a PITA to keep clean tho. Although now that I think about it, it cant be much harder than yellow lol

Yeah. The keeping clean things is pushing me away from white. So now it will just stay tan

I think that would look cool. Hmmm but I would suggest possible a gray tone to match your silver instead of silver. I've had experiences with silver paint. They never last well or spray good

They are the IGGEE custom simulated leather covers. got them from Ebay. My only goal was to get waterproof seat covers and these are the only things that I could find. They fit well, and are definately waterproof, and clean up well also just a little soap and water then rinse like the rest of the interior. they run about $270 for the full set.
