Yep, it's time to tackle the interior. The dash has been out for almost two months so I figured it's time to go ahead and do the rest. This weekend I removed the rear seat, rear plastic and got the dash, door panels and rear seat dyed black. So far everything is looking GREAT. Hope to start building a new center console sometime this week and have everything back in the truck by the end of the month. I got lucky and found, what seems to me, a recently rebuilt steering column at the junk yard. It's tight

What dye are you using? What place is doing the work?

I'm just using the Dulicolor Vinyl/Fabric dye you can get at any local autoparts. I'm doing all the work myself. It's pretty straight forward so far. I'm waiting for a part to come in so I can work on my steering column, then the parts will start flowing back into the truck.

How well does it work on your instrument panel and hard plastic door pad parts?

I haven't done the instrument panel yet...I need to get a new one. The door panels have seemed to work out pretty good. They've been outside for almost a week now and the dirt just wipes right off. I did try to tape off an area to do a two toned look though and when I pulled off the tape, a nice bit of the black paint came with it so everything is just going black unless it's a different part (door arm rest will be dark tan). Worked REALLY good on my rear seat though. I could see having some issues with the door panels with the paint chiping, but the dash and everything else shouldn't see the daily abuse the door panels get so I think I'll be happy with the results.

not that hard, just very time consuming to do it w/o tearing anything up, 2 bolts and like 6 screws

Yep, not hard at all. I removed it by myself. Took about an hour and a half if I remember right. Takes two to get it back in and took less than an hour.
