    So much that when I decide to upgrade the in dash with the AVH-P4200 and ipod connection in the center cubby I wanted to do something special that I haven't see much of (until after I finished it of course). When I 1st jumped into the Toyota market I really liked the FJ Cruiser's colored stereo face plate. I know some will say it's to much but I love it. Now to hurry up and get my taxes back so I can upgrade the stock speakers and add a sub. Anyway here is a pick of my handy work. Just so we're all clear, I am not a painter and I did this on the back porch at night with the light from my utility closet.

    But seriously, did you use color matched paint from the dealer? The pic looks shopped, pretty dead on match.

    I used color match from Automotivetouchup.com

    What kind of details? Its just a center console. I have other pic but they are pretty blurry. This one was the best I took. (Still learning the characteristics of the Nikor 50mm prime)

    No I happen to have a bull head with led eyes that light up when the lights are on and get brighter when I hit the brakes. So no room for the metallic "Blue Balls". LOL
