    and i forgot to put that i took the lights apart and painted the reflector black. i actually did a little custom stuff to it to make sure light comes out. i just wanted to try something different. i also have led running lights and full led interior lights and puddle lights. and i also got the rear bed covers resprayed gloss black.

    Looks great! So, with the LED's, where did you get them and did you have to change fuses or put on resistors so you don't blow fuses?

    Thanks!

    on the leds, i got them all from superbrightleds.com and just got the sizes for them off of sylvanias website.

    and about the fuses i didnt have to change any fuses until i tried to put the glove box and the sun visors in and it blew a fuse so i just took it out but other than that everything else has been good. a few friends have already got it on there cars.

    you can also get them from superilluminations.com but are more expensive.

    and about the bed covers, i wanted to make it smooth but just didnt have the time. im sure i will get around to it soon.

    thanks guys!

    exactly how did you get it smooth? did you sand it down on a high grit so it didnt burn or did you fill it in with primer or something?

    did you buy the tail lights or do them your self, did you do anything with the light bar above the back window?

    The bed covers are a PITA to do, but the end result is all worth it. It takes alot of sanding, filling,sanding, priming, sanding, priming, then we painted them black, sanded again and painted black again and cleared. Then we sanded the clear down again then re-cleared. Its very time consuming but mine turned out perfect. Make sure your painter uses a very good clear coat. We used the most expensive clear out on the market. Its very durable and scratch resistant. Its also very expensive, therefore many bodyshops dont have it or use it. They ordered some of this clear for my truck. Im repainting the bezel that goes around my Strut grille, and we are gonna use the good clear on it to keep it fresh so rock chips dont happen, Ill get u guys the name brand of the clear.

    I also have LED's lighting my interior.

    Re: almost done. blacked out.

    i scooped up the tires from someone hurting for money. i paid 750 for them but havent been able to find any deal even almost as good.

    and on the console i actually pressure washed off the old flakeing layer off and used duplicolor paint but when i put my system in im going to have alot of stuff dyed professionaly. i think a body shop can do it.
