Well I had a relatively productive day... VERY pic heavy... Sorry!

SeatSkinz Gray Leather seat covers installed ($630) (Side note - the head rests aren't done yet. I agreed to go back when they have their machine and bags to suck the air out of the head rests in order to make putting the covers on easier.)

Before:


After:

(Ignore the centre console, that is actually the cover for the centre seat for the bench version. I'm thinking of trying to modify it to fit the cover to protect it from the dog that likes standing there.)


Bought WeatherTech front mats ($126):



And the real kicker? I got my rims put on! ($194/each plus extra long lugs @ $2.69/each - reused my OEM lock nuts) These are the same tires but with the wider rims, it gives the tires a completely different look! I am so stoked with them... I was afraid I wasn't going to like it with the tires I had, but I really really do. I am so happy with them! Giddy almost!
(Side note: TPMS sensors on 2014 rims screw into the valve stem, but the valve stem is not removeable. So I ordered a complete new set from the dealership @ $48/each where replacing the valves is $25/each. I decided to buy the new set in case i decide to use the OEM rims for winters.)
(Side note 2: The installer forgot to order the hub rings ($6.30/each) to make the rims hub centric instead of lug centric so when I go back to get the headrests done, they'll install the rings and TPMS sensors @ no charge.)
(Side note 3: see all the drips on the floor? That is Krown rust proofing still dripping 2 weeks after application - I'm beginning to think they drenched the truck far beyond what they normally do. Was told 2-3 days of dripping, I am waaay beyond that! LMAO)

I also washed and waxed it again today... (Probably not up to Primo's scrutiny but good for me! And I learned a lesson today too... Do not put your interior detailing stuff with your exterior detailing stuff. My dash detailing spray bottle is VERY much like my spray wax bottle... I did the drivers side of the truck with the interior detailer before I saw what I was doing... DOH!)

Default Plasti-Dip

I Plasti-Dipped my Shifter chrome bezel, I took my inspiration for this from various poster's on the Ram Z. This stuff rocks! When I put second coat on it looked like a orange peel, thought I was going to have to start over but after it dried it was perfect!

Honestly, the FW1 isn't bad... But only if your vehicle isn't overly dirty and you don't want to do the extra step of waxing.
I much prefer the finish of the Ice spray wax... And washing via two bucket is faster than using the FW1.

I had to replace one of the oxygen sensors yesterday, but all is well. Tonight will be the start of a long road trip, my first worth the Ram. It should prove to be fun and interesting.
