I went with Black then OD green trim , the pics do no justice . I wish I still had the truck to shoot more . You can tell what I used as trim might give you a good Idea . I will caution poeple to this I painted every peice inside truck , spending well over 40hrs in prep and paint , most panels were painted and cured for over a week before they went back in the truck , when I sold it there were no scuffs or pealing . I also spent money on this using quality materials over 150 inpaint and prep stuff . I think you should paint handle trim , air louver , radio bezel , air vents thats it Yellow is alot more contrasting than OD/Black so you wouldnt want to go as far as I did , Anyways on with the pics .

The pics make it look to light , the OD was much darker in person so the contrast looked alot better . Thanks for the complements .

To get the air bag out , open you glove box , on the piano hinge should be some bolts holding it on . Once removed look up into the dash there will be a 3pin conector with real heavy guage wire 8-10 should be red , black , yellow . unplug this first .
Next there should be 3 gold nuts 11mm if memory serves remove thos and it should slide right out .

I like the pistol holster is that custom or did you buy that off a site?

Edit: never mind looks custom. How hard was that to do? You have a thread on it?

I always get this question when I use this picture , lol .

It is a Kydex pancake holster , I think its made by Fobus . It and the MAg holder slip inside your pants and stay locked under the belt . At the time I was getting lots of Alarm calls form work and had to clear building with PD to make sure nobody had stolen Sensitive materials/drawings . So I would just jam the holster inbetween the console and seat , get on scene and pull it out and put on holster weapon and all kept it handy and ready . It was not attached to the console just happened be there when I ttok the pictures .

Look awesome Yellow. Nice work. It really brightens up the interior.

On another note, is that a Honda I see in the background??? Nice to see a fellow rider!

WOW, that looks great. I'm a fan of the camo style, and that is just awesome. The gun holster is definetly a nice touch. Console and everything is well done. Damn. That's some nice work.
