So i finally finished up my little interior refresh project.. neoprene seat covers, new stereo, new carpet, tuffy center console and my favorite part is my custom made switch panel in the console. Sorry the pictures aren't the best, took them with my cell phone...

camo wrap trim and gauge bezel

pic of the switch panel i made, i like that i was able to add the aux stereo input, and the usb stereo input, two extra power points and switches for future off road lights.

Of course now there are a few other things i'd like to do/add like hiding a sub in one of the rear cubbies, but money will have to catch up first!
Hope you all enjoy...

Good looking seat covers, did you do them yourself? If you bought them (as opposed to having an upholstery shop make them), who did you get them from?

I got them from coverking... it's their "cheap" version of neoprene. I'm really happy with them although it took a week or so to get them because they don't make them until you order them (or so they say on the receipt)

Thanks everyone... i think it turned out very well all in all... I have the explorer overhead console i still need to wire in... i'm especially happy with the switch tray though, it came out better than i imagined...

How did you do the camo accents???? Thats a cool touch. :beer
I have to thank my years covering R/C airplanes... I sanded the trim pieces down to rough them up, then cleaned with isopropyl alcohol to clean them and remove any finger oils. Then I ordered a vinyl decal sheet off Ebay, then spent freaking HOURS trimming with a small x-acto knife and stretching with a heat gun over all the curves etc... The toughest parts were the door pieces because not only do you have to wrap around the edges you also have the curve towards the front of the door... I only wanted small accents, so the trim pieces, a gauge bezel i bought off ebay, and the switch panel is what got covered. It was more of a way to kind of bring the whole thing together... ;)

I actually wanted to do liquid coating, BUT that would have cost me over a hundred dollars, this cost me like 15...

Thanks for the info. I might have to bite that from you!:goodfinge
No worries... what's that they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Which is what we're all here for anyway, lord knows i've gotten more information here than i ever could anywhere else... gotta love the hive brain.

I got the vinyl sheet from ebay, a seller called "metrostyling". I found it was easiest to remove all the trim pieces of course and apply them inside on the kitchen table...
