I saw you don't like the silver, but my truck is silver, so it made sense...
OK Guys they all look GREAT! But how do you paint the trim on the steering wheel? I want to do this so bad but i have no idea how to get the piece off.

You have to pop the airbag off, they're are 3 tabs you get to from the back, 10, 2 and 6 o'clock positions, with a flat head screwdriver. A little pocket mirror comes in REAL handy...then there are 4 screws behind there, and 2 on the backside of the bottom part of the wheel. Then it just pops off...

If I can give any advice with the colorbond it is go SLOW and try to put on VERY even coats. If not, some spots will look like they have alittle gloss sheen to them and others will look flat...I had to redo mine a couple times, the final coat looked good, although I did have a couple spots, but apply your favorite interior dressing and you won't even notice. Good Luck!
