DIY colormatched upper glovebox & floor console tray install
 
Alright so the point of this post is to verify that some part numbers fit and to show you can save alot of money colormatching interior parts yourself...

First I ordered these:
http://moparonlineparts.com/1500-flo...ck-p-4009.html

and

http://moparonlineparts.com/1500-glo...13-p-3877.html

both in black, and the glovebox states it only fits for 13's. If you look at the prices you can see I saved about $20 on the tray and almost $95 on the glovebox!

Then I picked up some colorbond interior paint in #160 Chrysler DK Slate

I also picked up they're prep cleaner. I'll admit I tried it on the stock pocket that was in the dash. The color match is about as close as your gonna get, is it dead on, no, but close enough that if your sitting in the truck and you look at the dash, you can't tell...

Sprayed everything this morning, and here are the results:

The close up pic of the glovebox and the dash looks way less noticable in person than it does in the pic...

Next up is to do that stupid Tan dash on top, I hate that thing!!! I was gonna do it today, but they was aliitle to much wind blowing and I didn't want overspray everywhere. I'll post pics when I get it done...Enjoy!

That doesn't look bad at all man. I hate painting plastic, always have...it never wants to stick and when it does I have to redo it a year later. Metal on the other hand, I am quite skilled with.
