Paint them silver!!! lol I dunno man, do you have a color theme for your truck or for the interior alone? I have a black truck with a lime green sockmonkey zombie response unit trd decal and lime green grill emblem so I did my interior black and lime green.

Ordering some Wet Okoles with the GB next week, black with full piping in lime green. A lot of people don't like the lime green but I do and think it goes with the whole zombie theme.

i just read over that actually, do you have pics of what you got in there now? thatd be cool to smoke out that clear lense a bit

It's stock with amber lights, in the 90's Toyota had done this stock to the cluster in the Lexus sc300

if you were to smoke the clear lense on your truck it would prolly look good but only with 1 or 2 coats
