You won't be disappointed.

Glad you posted. Exactly what I was referring to in my post.

Yup, that is the place I was thinking of.

The other link about 3m tape has no pics since the crash took them. That OP would have to repost pics.

I remember the dipping process was relatively cheap.

If you want to go carbon fiber look just find a recent Mazda Bezel they come stock CF and it's a quality job :)

What will it cost to do a Cntr Bezel at $0.50/sq in.
Do they do the overall area or just the material used.
How big is the Cntr Bezel anyway, rough guess 216 sq in’s x 0.50 = over a hundred buck, now the 3M method starts to look good. I guess it depends on the person and if they want to take it on.
I think the liquid method, done by someone that knows what they are doing with this stuff WILL be the best idea but depending on coast.

And you could Carbon Fiber around the Gauge Panel, that area next to the gauge cluster.
How about a Carbon Fiber Cnter Console Housing ?



98liftedranger,
Do you have a thread on your Interior Color Change ?
If not talk to me about what paint, what color and anything that caused you $hit ?
Thks

I had them done last year, so pricing might have changed--I'd contact Dante @ AHI for a quote. Bezel was $50, door trim pieces were $35 each; they should have been $50 each, but Dante honored his original quote for me. About a 2 week turnaround for mine.
I spent easilly that much on the DiNoc and it all ended-up in a landfill! Good luck finding one of the Mazda ones--they didn't make too many of those Troy Lee trucks, and honestly, when you compare the Mazda one with the "dipped" one, the is no comparison; dipped looks MUCH better.

If you're just doing the bezel, it would probably be around $50 plus hipping to AHI--you'll spend that much for the DiNoc.

Shitty pics of what I did. I like this over the dipping process... the dipping process lacks depth in my opinion but to each their own. This wasn't hard. Just make sure you have a heat gun as with working with any type of vinyl it's a must...

OK sounds good… looks like the it was done right.


Wow, that looks good, nice job and yes it does have an textured look.
The Cntr Bezel, the Door Handle/Button Area, the OHC and if possible the area in front of the gauge cluster, now we’re thk’g, what about the Shorty Cntr Console.

I wonder if this stuff will stand up to heat, maybe an upper intake and valve covers on a RED engine… wonder !?!

How much for how much $$$ ?

You will be the new Bugggman of Vinyl Cladding and I will be your first customer.

If you haven't done it yet... Consider SEMs Paint.
It will match the OEM color better.

Too late…
Why did you decide on gloss black.
I am not questioning your choice, it is your truck but just wondering why the gloss.
What else in the cab will be gloss blk if anything ?

Im actually very pleased with the color of the paint. Its pretty damn close to where I wanted it.
As far as why I chose it there were a few reasons:
1)Already had the paint
2) I keep everything in my truck pretty shinny with Armorall and the glass actually matches the rest of the truck pretty well.

Yeah I mean the truck itself is black. The inside door grabs are shinny black and the shifter base is the same. Good little scheme going :)
