I got my interior finished last week. I had the headliner covered in suede and color matched the pillars, overhead console and rear lamp surround.

The total cost is hard to figure up since I did so much of the work myself and the whole process took about a month and a half to complete.

The uphostery shop charged me $100 for the material and labor. I saved some money by pulling the headliner and visors out of the truck myself. The wiring for the overhead console and rear lamp were held on by some kind of gorilla glue that I had to use a razor blade to cut. The visors do not have the warning labels or a mirror on the passengers side now, they are just plain suede covered visors.

I spent about $15 on the adhesion promoter and paint for the pillars, overhead console, and the rear lamp. I had previously bought a 5-pck of large sized Torx-bits when I installed my stereo, so I had the T-50 on hand to remove the seatbelt.

I really like the look of everything, I think it came out well, even with some of the hooks still the original light grey color. I would have liked to color match those also, but there were a few small spots that just I couldn't spray adequately or the paint would rub off. Such as where the seat belt rubs and where the visor clips into the headliner.

The only thing I am still contemplating is to spray the overhead consol, rear lamp surround, and the center dash bezel Flame Red to match the truck, but everything stays as is for now.

Time to work on the wife's Hemi Durango some, just put the chrome handle covers on, now thinking about color matching the mirrors and luggage rack

MRK Group makes products that cover those, and they are available in Flame Red.

Looks good. Are you going to get the hooks and parts on your visors?
