Another Little Paint Job, Need a Little Help Tho





Black and red ;)

I also did the dome light and rear cupholder in a similar scheme, I'm having trouble getting the dome light back together though, any tips? I just need to re-snap the enclosure onto the lighting fixture.

Unless you broke the tab it should just snap back together. Maybe yours is different.

I didn't break any tabs, and it does snap back together, but my issue is I can't angle it back into the headliner when its snapped together and if I try to snap it together while the fixtures already in the headliner I cant hold it there long enough for them to join because it just goes up into the roof.

Hope I'm explaining this ok

That means the housing isn't attached to the bezel properly. It should snap in place, afterwards you should be able to install the lens.

Coby, what replacement type bulb do you have in there? My dome lamp looks different than yours. I have two toggle-able lights on the back half of the fixture for the back seats. I'm looking for some nice white LEDs

oh wait I didn't mean just the lens, I meant the whole plastic casing, the switch is just sitting in its place so I can still use it.
