Hey, another question, now that you have all the dash apart, is it easy to get at the guage cluster, was thinking of removing the plastic lens to clean and polish it like new again. Can you take a close up of that if it comes off easy, if not, don't bother. Thanks!
Hey sorry. Yes, the gaugle cluster cover is actually only 2-7mm bolts and it pops out. You have to pop it out anyway for 2 of the trim pieces. This was my first time pulling the trim for a f150/raptor. So even a novice like me can do it! Just takes patience and remembering which have clips and which have hooks and clips.

Thanks, looking forward to your completed job! Then I'm going to start mine. Sweet project.

Some pics of the finished product! The trim that wraps the center console was a bear, yes I know I'm missing my 120v and the bezel for the front 12v, gotta order them haha.

Looks Good - 1080 has held up well going on 5 years. Heat is your friend, my first try was on a 60 deg winter day in Texas. the vinyl would not conform tp the curves.
I have contemplated doing the interior of my truck and your picture make me want to give it a go. Again...

Yeah the heat definitely helped on the curves, some areas I wish came out better, but not beating myself up to much for my first go at it. The 1080 I think is discontinued so you'll get the 2080 now. Definitely need to pick up a sunshade now though with all the extra black.

Looks good for doing it yourself. So how much did you order altogether? I was thinking about ordering the 60" X 24" sheet, why didn't you do the door handle recess's, are they hard to get off the door panels? I will definitely do mine as the drivers side has some paint wear from continued use.
