I didn't like the stock gauges behind the billet dash so I removed the dash and now i'm installing Autometer Ultra-Lite water, oil, volts, fuel, speedometer and tachometer gauges into the billet panel. Need to purchase dash from LMC before I can reinstall.
Purchased Herculiner do-it-yourself brush-on bed liner kit at Kragen Auto Parts in Arleta, Ca. for $97 with tax. This is one of the modifications that I highly recommend. I've applied it to the front floor pan and i'm very impressed with the results Dry to the touch with in 3 hours and the next day I tried picking it off with my nails and it doesn't come off. Really nice glossy black texture that looks like it was done by a pro. All you have to do is clean out the cab, wash the floor with soapy water, sand paper, solvent cleaner and then apply with the sponge roller. Buy a paint tray and rubber gloves and even possilbly a respirator but i didn't use one and i'm still breathing. Just take some breaks by walking away evey few minutes so you get some fresh air in your lungs and you shouldn't stumble much after your done. Kit comes with 1 gallon of Polyurethane coating, two sponge rollers, handle, can opener, scuff pad and instructions. Instructions will tell you to purchase a solvent such as MEK or equivalant so becareful because that stuff will kill you just from inhaling it too long. I'm considering doing the bed of the truck as well instead of going to a shop and having them spray it on. I want quality and this product made by Herculiner is as good as it gets. Just make sure you don't cut corners.
