    Alright so tonight i decided to start taping things off for painting my center console tomorrow. After getting everything taken apart and prepped i wondered if i could drive with everything unplugged in the cab? Will i be ok if i dont plug anything back in and drive?​
    (sorry about the crappy phone pics at night)

    I am interested in seeing it all painted. What paint are you planing on using.

    I think it would be fine to drive with out it all there. Maybe tape up the loose connections so the terminal ends don't bounce around and make contact.

    Dude, you waited eleven minutes between each of your 'bumps'

    It is not necessary to do that. Have some patience.

    Good job brother .... it is amazing what a litle paint can do. I did the same in July ..... wasn't really loving the silver SR5 look .... to me that (SR5) looks as if it came out of Autozone .... not that there is anything wrong with that.

    cool. is that dupli color like the krylon fusion where its made to bond to plastic?...I mean i assume you didn't have to do any sanding and primer correct? and since you used flat black....i also assume no clear right? think you inspired me to paint mine.
