Yea, they were tan so I couldnt leave it. The driver side is a black triple gauge pod, but I may move the gauges somewhere else.

I painted mine flat black. Need to retouch it once in a while but not to often. mostly on the area where the seatbelt slides into and near the auto seatbelt tracks.

A one yearish update on painting the A and B pillars: they are still looking good no need to retouch anywhere, not even under the seat belts (yet) so painting or wrapping in fabric seems sufficient

i have done both paint and wrap them. im much happier with the wrap then paint. i found the paint sticks weird and its hard to get a good coverage because of the dimples on the surface of the pillars. i tried sanding them smooth but that was a lost cause. to save my half mangled pillars from the sanding i wrapped them in black felt and im very happy. plus you get the awesome fuzzy texture from the felt.

"when life hands you a Jeffrey, rub the fuzzy A pillars :lol:"
