Thanks. I bought the paint from Lowes, I guess I just got luckey with the color match.

Good luck recessing the speakers, the photo you provided looks really nice. It would be quit a challange, good luck!

the only place that it is dry are the places that we are going to trim off anyway...and actually most of it is just the flash on the camera ;)

plus that is only one layer...apprx 5 more will be going on. and no, we didnt remove teh dead petal...

Removing the dead peddle itself sometimes makes for a great mounting point for the drivers side. Did in mine, once removed left me two bolt holes to use for mounting :)
