That's the way to do it. If I had time to take out my dash and do this I would but BLUE!!!! . Did you take out your dash or did you cover everything up and painted inside the cab?

took all of the little random plastic pieces out, the part around the cluster and the driver panels, but left the part of the dash with the radio and glovebox in there and just taped off. i left the door panels and back wall panels in and painted all of that inside the cab.

That's what I thought. I did the same with the accent pieces; have to redo them though. But I like my setup as it is now. But yours is nice and I applaud you for it because you didn't screw anything else up in the cab.

Hey, the more time you spent on the prepping, the more quality your going to get in the end of the project. That's why I said, I have to redo my accent pieces lol
