*PICS!* Tore out my factory bed liner and dash
 
Not sure what possessed me to cut the son of a bitch out. Though I do have my moments where I see something I want done and come hell or high water I will succeed.

First off, tearing out the factory bed liner can be done by one person. However, two people would make for less cussing, less scraps and cuts, and again, less cussing. In the end I ****ing won! Oh and for the record I am getting a spray in liner before we take our vacation in early June.

Tools used: hex driver and hedge trimmers (not kidding).

Cant' see it very well but there's a white-colored film across the top...

Must clean it out! This was all hidden beneath the liner, hello future rust!

Adios liner! (giving it to a company employee)

I removed the center dash because......IT'S GETTING PAINTED THIS WEEK! YEAH!!! I don't know exactly all the pieces I'm sending. I do have a specific question though, further down.

Don't cut the blue wire!

On this picture, and the one beneath it, HOW IN THE HELL do the bezels surrounding the A/C vents come off?! I have tinkered with every clip and it doesn't budge! I'm also trying to remove the A/C bezels closest to each door. I've got them out, but not removed. It's a mega PITA I must say.

IIRC those vents are very very very flimsy and break easily, be careful

Nimz 04-26-2012 05:01 PM

The vents are all out, and yeah removing them takes a lot of caution. None of mine snapped thankfully.

You should see my interior. I have no A/C vents, no radio console, and no floor console---just the electronics hooked into the controls. My painter said by next week I will have them back. I even had him paint the engine cover.

Course you know I'll post pictures when the time comes.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, the tan interior has me on edge for painting the console pieces DWB. Reps to ya for yanking it all out without snapping anything

Keep us updated on how things go......

Nimz 04-29-2012 11:34 PM

Painter said they'll be finished by the middle of this next week he does this on the side. Tuesday morning I'm having RhinoLiner done, quote was $430 for over the rails.

Engine cover painted blue and interior pieces painted to match. $200
This is by far my most loved modification. Out of every single thing I've done so far to the truck having the interior pieces painted to match is #1. I love the final look. I am going back after June to have the raised letters painted gray make the look pop more on both the engine cover and console "DODGE" lettering.

3 of 4 main center console pieces in the sun, the color really pops I think.

Thanks to everyone for the inspiration. I take pride in making this truck my own and through the wonderful members, countless threads, stickies, and previous guinea pigs, you have helped make this possible.

Chunkem 05-06-2012 05:04 PM
