Looks cool. I need to do something like that with my spice interior. Not as dramatic though.

It's easy to do get some wide tipped shaker cans and some primer take your time and do it properly make sure it's not a latex based paint , if you can get a laquer base a lot easier to work with

Thanks! I just added under dash lights too. I don't have pics yet, but it's the same lights that DylanRhodes45 used on the DIY mods thread

I ordered my dash lights on amazon, 2 kits, 16 lights, just under 6$. I'll post some pictures when they're installed. I ordered a blue kit and a white kit.

When they work, I'll post which kits I ordered.

Go on there and search "194 led" and whatever color you want. When I ordered mine through them it was Jtech and I got 10 red LEDs for 5 or 6 bucks. That was a couple years ago and they all still work.

Im currently building my custom dash with stainless steel center piece for gauges, switches, etc and I am going to be adding a Smittybilt Vaulted Glove Box in place of the stock one. Look into them!
