i got mine under construction at the moment, never any time to work on it, I am going with a two tone metallic base/clear silver and dark silver, the truck is white, but will probably be changing that here within the next 2 months, colors undecided. if i knew how to post pics, id show the progress on my interior, nothing is rattle canned, I learned NOT to do that a few cars ago. since i cant post, ill explain, i took that stupid wal-mart peice of crap stereo housing out, and trashed it, I got a piece of aluminum from the scrap pile, cut it 1/2'' bigger than the big space in the radio bezel, bent al 4 corners at 90*. i scarred up the inside edge of the bezel, placed the peice where i wanted it, and glued it in using a plastic adhesive. after 24 hours, i marked where i wanted my cd player, and cut it out. now its mudding time. i applied thin coats of body filler to the aluminum going to the plastic, to create a smooth, fiberglassed look. It is now in the primer stages, just got done tonight with the 1st wetsanding, went back and filled small pinholes with glazing putty, and used a higer build primer to take the 320 scratches out, so now it sits, waiting to be wetsanded again, and painted next weekend.

So im wanting to paint the inside of my truck (i hate the brown/tan color in there and i wanna make it black or grey) any advice as to what kind of steps to follow to ensure that the paint will stick to the plastic/vinyl and not crack?

Make sure the surface is clean, 2-3 light coats of adhesion promotor, a couple coats of vinyl and fabric paint and then clear on top of it. I use all Duplicolor stuff.

So when you guys are painting your interior...do you dismantle the whole interior? or do you paint it just assembeld in the cab of the truck (dumb question probably) and if so, how do you take apart all the dash parts? i want my whole interior to be black instead of the crappy mud brown/tan color.

Any chance we can get the update link in Rob's first post back up mods? I would ask him but I believe it is an RF deal.

Ah gotcha, thats no good, re-painting my interior, this time gotta deal with paint thinner to get the old stuff off. I know Rob said he used Aircraft paint thinner, said it was overkill, but this Wal-Mart stuff isn't workin' too well lol.

where did you get your floor mats?

I believe those are oem mats, you can usually pick them up on Ebay unless you want to spend alot at a dealer.
