Yea...it really does look good. I was skeptical about all the silver parts at first, but in person....looks really really good.


Hey...those are some pretty cool tanks you got there.

Looks really good. I usually don't like interiors with paint but that looks pretty damn good, almost OEM looking. Nice setup with the air too.

Thanks man! I got as close to OEM FX4 Silver that I could and then cleared it... I'm not a fan of interior painted parts either.... But I had to do something with my pieces that had the rubber stuff on them; started peeling all over the place and that's just not clean haha... Turned out really nice!

It's actually a stainless steel brushed piece... It's way cool.. Buddy of mine ordered these



And they sent him two of the overlays for the HVAC panel, so he gave me his extra for free! lol

Trent, with your truck I'd either do the silver like mine... Duplicolor Aluminum or gloss black... I recommend though if you go silver, do it like mine! In your truck especially with the black console like mine it'll look way good!
