    I think your truck looks great.....the tail lights definitely DO NOT look ghetto. They look awesome! I should do this also. What kind of bug shield is that? I'm usually not a fan of bug shields, but I like the one on your truck....looks like its low profile....fits flush with the hood. Am I right or are the pics deceiving me?

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Coming from you guys.... it's an honour! :)

    I'm not entirely sure... it came with the truck. I think it's a Toyota bug shield though.... pretty sure I saw it branded in the plastic or something.

    I got a few extras with this truck, including a tonneau cover, step bars, and window vents! The tonneau cover was a brand new piece, and only cost me $200.00 instead of $1000.00! :)

    Thanks man! I really like how the Carbon Fiber looks too.... but going to redo the arm rests in black leather or some other material. The Carbon Fiber was a pain to install there, and had to be adjusted a few times. As a result, it's starting to come loose on the arm rests.... :(

    I'm going to try and get that done by the end of the weekend.... because it's bugging me! lol!

    Well, got it done! Took the better part of the day, but finally finished around 9:45pm (Eastern Time) tonight!

    What the carbon fiber looked like after a day.... :(

    [​IMG]

    Roll of vinyl I got for $5.00!

    [​IMG]

    Laying out the old arm rest material to cut the new stuff

    [​IMG]

    Traced it out:

    [​IMG]

    Next step was to clean off the old adhesive off the plastic panels. I used paint thinner and a rag and rubbed it all off. Kinda messy... but I wanted a bare surface to work with.

    Next, I used the spray adhesive I got at the upholstery store. The can usually sells for $25.00 a can, but they had one there that was soiled on the outside, so they sold it to me for $10.00! :)

    I sprayed the adhesive on the panel outside, then ran in the house to apply the vinyl. You kinda have to work quickly, and I had my wife help me lay down the vinyle and flatten it onto the panel.

    After a couple of hours of dry time, I intalled all the panels back on the door panel, and called it a night!

    [​IMG]

    Pics of the panels installed will be coming.... ran out of daylight, and I'm just going to wait til the morning to put them in the truck.

    Thanks for looking, and check back tomorrow if you're interested in seeing what it looks like installed in the truck.

    Thanks folks! It was definitely worth it, and isn't all that hard to do! Just a little time consuming.... ;)

    LET THERE BE LIGHT!

    [​IMG]

    Got my LED panel in the mail! So much better than the other one I ordered, and cheaper!

    Also, fell upon a used set of Weather Tech floor mats for $135.00! These babies retail for nearly double that!

    [​IMG]

    I'm gonna clean them up a little, but for the price... I couldn't pass those up!
