Default 99-04 Complete Interior Color Swap

I currently have the tan interior in the car but I wanna switch it all to black. Carpet, dash, doors, seats.. I wanted to see if anyone has done this and if there were any major kinks you ran into? My main worry would be swapping out the dash and steering wheel/column especially with the airbag in there. Any help/opinions appreciated.

RIT I'm seriously considering black racing seats (Corbeau probably), black carpet, and wipe-on black vinyl dye... the other option would be to find the interior out of a 10th Anni Cobra... about as rare as **** on a bull...
Slow New Edge with an exhaust leak...

It's way easy. If you have a 99+ you HAVE to keep the cluster. EVERYTHING is unbolt it and take it out. Then replace it with the new stuff. The difference in the single and double din isn't really a problem either. Just swap the radios or have a aftermarket. The Stock mach460 DD wiring isn't the same as the SD so swap for an aftermarket. There's no real trick here....just affording it seems to be the biggest problem..

I AGREE with all of the tan haters... im going black also, ugh tan leather FTL. just yet another thing to do.
I bought a goldfish, named it after my ex-girlfriend, and let it die. It's really the little things in life.

Police in dallas are giving local drivers cowboys tickets instead of speeding tickets

Ditching the 4.6 but keeping 4 cams.
