Another update

Well I am just about done. Only thing left is to cut and stain some oak trim to cover the staples. Turned out pretty good. The Stan is abit dark, but it should be close to the dash wood look trim.

I'm not sure on the stainless screws! I'll leave them for now, but if I don't like them I'll get some black oxide screws so they don't stand out.

Now I need to get the MH home and install it. Then I can work on my lower console with the cupholders.

Thanks. I always like little projects like this. Now to see how it actually looks in front of the dash.

Looking nice indeed!

For the screws, I've taken to making black screws by "painting" their heads with a black permanent marker.

You can buy plastic screw caps/covers that will provide a decorative cover for your screws. They are not expensive and the cover caps just snap on.
