    06 double cab, 4x4 TRD off-road
    Hello all, I just joined TW the other day although I've been lurking around for a few weeks. I introduced myself to the board on the "new member" section but wanted to do it again in the 2nd gen section also.

    Anyway, I purchased a 06 DC 4x4 TRD Off road, did some research on here and ordered up a 3" lift from toytec w/5100s, currently set to arrive on the 2nd of March *excited dance*. The wheels and tires came in yesterday (see pic below).

    I have big plans for this little rig; I started today with the color change in the cab from grey to black, this will be on select panels. A full Black leather seat kit (arrived today) Looks amazing! I pulled the center console out and some of the trim on the passenger side to do the color change, I got as far as 3 coats on the center console and had to quit painting. I then opened the leather kit and was able to get the bottom seat trim pulled off and installed the leather; looks, feels and smells awesome! I had to call it a day real early but not until I snapped a few teaser shots. Please enjoy and stay tuned.

    Last time this is going to look this way.

    Just threw it in there to get a glance at what it's going to look like, very happy so far.

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    So, you dyed the center console? Any chance you could elaborate on that?... On a different note, looking good :D

    Thanks, yea they really caught my eye when I first saw them.

    I'm just using Duplicolor vinyl/plastic dye. Normally i'd have some mixed up at my local auto paint store to match exactly but This is pretty close to the shade of the leather seat covers so I went that route from Advance Auto Parts.

    Make sure you clean all impurity out of the panels with some mineral spirits and/or denatured alcohol which pulls all the chemicals out of the panel and leaves a good prep surface for the adhesive promotor, Dupli-color is what I'm using also this time around. Apply several coats...well just follow the directions on the cans after you prep the trim pieces and panels.
    TY TY, It gets looks, smiles and thumbs up from all ages and genders when you drive down the street. Country girls love it! :)

    Thanks, Love the sig! Didn't get to go "boarding" this year...really bummed! First year in like 8 that we haven't gone. But i may try to sneak a trip in late in the season.

    Good guess! We are in FL. an hour and a half north of tampa. And Thanks

    i like the leather. katzkins? i painted some of my interior pieces with duplicolor vinyl and fabric. comes out good, but can wear. i did the controls on the doors and my double din surround. there were wear spots after a while. just wanted to give you a heads up. might wear on the center console armrest. none the less tho, looks good.

    Yes, and I've dyed plenty of panels in the past however this is the first time I'm using the Duplicolor. I wanted to give it a shot and see how it stacks up to the real stuff. I'm hoping that with the proper clean and prep it will keep. Oh, and the leather kit comes with a piece just for the armrest on the center console. :p

    Didn't get to do anything today, got off work late and was running around. Even missed the fedex guy who was delivering some goodies. :/ Sucks

    ya, i did the proper prep and clean. the dye/paint didn't chip off or anything, it just faded to a dark charcoal in high traffic areas. hopefully it works out better for you. glad to hear that the armrest it getting leather as well. are you going to dye anything else?... say door panels, stereo/vent surround, lower dash piece where the 12v plugs are? just curious.

    I was looking at it this evening, I have a 7" nav unit coming to replace the radio and that center section. I think I'm going to have to have some color matched dye made up from the paint shop to match the odd colored dash (charcolish?), then I'm going to paint the two outer sides of the center dash that are on either side of the radio where the vents are. Only reason is because the metallic finish on my truck seems to have been damaged by some kind of liquid probably coffee or soda not to mention its scratched pretty good on the passenger side. So I think I'm going to dye that to match the dash, that will also visually shrink the dash and go with the flow of the black and grey. As far as the doors I haven't decided yet, I'm going to be doing a custom stereo in here so they may eventually get wrapped in leather once all is said and done. But there will still be theme of the subtle two tone grey and black.

    Thanks!

    LOL, you must have read my mind. I was typing while you were posting (see above response). But I think I'm going to have to have real dye color matched for those areas and use a gun. The vent areas are too adjacent to have colors not match exactly. You know?

    I haven't had any dyes fade on me yet (knock on wood) but like I said, that wasn't stuff out of a can, I'm just going to give this a go and see how it holds up. It's worth a shot if you know how much custom dye costs to mix up. :eek: LOL
