So after stripping the cab due to a water leak from back window I decided to bite the bullet and take on the console mod as well as recover my seats in black.
It was a pretty long project but I'm happy with the results. I still need to figure out the best way to address the seat belts. I'm guessing vinyl dye.
Special thanks to Chris (the12fast4u) for his great job and support in helping me get this done. Onto some pics!
Getting started....


Seat covers and console arrive.



My dining room for about 3 months....lol


Getting closer


Basically done

Thanks for all the kind words. This is my 3rd L and I always wanted to try this mod.
To paint the other parts I googled "paint my interior black lightning" and found some good threads. Basically it is just taking it apart, 2000 grit sand and wash with Dawn soap, sem vinyl prep and adhesive promoter, then SEM Landau black. Skip any of those steps and I would have to do it over again. I painted those doors 2 years ago and they still look fresh.
The upholstery install intimidated me because I'd never hog ringed before but it wasn't too bad. I can't even change plugs on the truck so if I can do it, you can too! Lol

Look up the12fast4u he makes the covers, sells the console as a "kit" with all the plates and stuff to bolt it on and he can also cut your lower seat to make it the bucket and get the brackets.

He did my seat and I bought a gray center console with the cover to match the stock seats. Gonna have to order the black package soon.

The back carpet on the wall I just sprayed with VHT vinyl dye. Used that on the sun visors too. I bought it all on amazon. My interior does still smell of paint.....lol
