    Got my truck delivered today!!!

    interior is light gray but at some point someone replaced the outer seat bezels on both seats with oak colored parts.

    I’m wondering if anyone has use a matching color paint with any luck.

    Also installed HVAC bulbs. The seat bezels are both oak and there are some interior parts pretty scuffed. I took the little storage tray out of the back of the center console with me to Walmart. I found a paint that is almost identical to the interior color.

    I’m swapping an oak colored shift console over in my truck and my interior is grey.
    Just wondering how yours turned out against the stock grey. Debating on trying to match or just make it black.
    Do you have a picture of it installed?

    I don’t but it looks good. I should’ve figured out a way to keep the paint on though. Watch out for the rubber strips on those bezels at the back- paint doesn’t stick too well. May want to just leave them oak. Should’ve used an adherer for the paint. But it looks stock.

    Right on, thanks man. I think I’ll give it a try. I usually just use a plastic primer from Ace for anything like that and it works good.

    I wish I did that. But they look a ton better than the oak
