Black Interior

Hey everyone,

New to the forum, Just bought a 2004 Ranger Edge 2wd, White Exterior, Gray/Black Interior.

I have already installed my Deck, Amp & Sub, i love my music loud.

So, what i am looking to do, Like i said, the interior is Gray/Black. Im not a huge fan of the gray. The whole dash panel is gray, and would like it to be black, as well as the doors. Now, the questions...
Is there somewhere i can buy these parts? IE a wrecker/ford/aftermarket?
Do they have a full black option availiable?
Or can i use a good quality interior paint?

Thanks everyone,

Pictures to come, Havent gotten that far yet.

your best bet is painting. I can't remember the name/brand of paint you'll want to use so maybe someone else can chime in with that...

yeah, i am thinking getting the right paint would work the best,

Now my only curiosity is, If it is properly done...will it LOOK painted, or will it look overall like a stock option? Also can i clean it with products like armour all and such?

wicked, my only concern was that maybe only the red was painted, which looking at the picture is high gloss, which looks awesome on the trim pieces, i just don't want the whole dash to be glossy black, i want a stock black look, much like you seem to hae there. I have not yet decided if i want to do the color accents such as yours, i think first off, just get rid of they grey

Defiantly don't go with a gloss dash makes driving into the sun horrible

Try to call around to the different junk yards. You might be able to nab one out of a newer ranger

Yeah, thats my very first plan of attack, before i get into painting the panels and such. Just replace it, much less room for error.
