    Alright so anyone know how to or where to start on switching out the roof liner, roof material, or I'm just gonna call it the roof carpet..
    Everyone knows grey doesn't look good and mine is dull and old with a few spots, would like to put on some fine suede or maybe even leather obviously in a different color...interior overhaul starts now.

    As you can see in this picture my mirrors are not really matched or even close to my paint on my truck they are all faded and bug stained is there any way that i can get its color to come back like if i spray paint it black would that make it look better?

    Try to use Meguiar's Cleaner Wax ,It works wonders , it not only cleans the plastic it also waxes it , you may need to do a couple applications . Its in a red bottle or a red can .
