What are those fasteners you used on the back of the panel? They look like bolts...but do they have a different head to slip behind the fiber board panel?

They are M6x16mm wafer heads. I used machine nuts with notched washers for the inside. They worked very well in place of the factory plastic rivets. I will cut the bolt sticking past the nut with a angle grinder which will lock the nut in place. I plan on running dynamat over the inside of the panel which will stop the bolts from rattling against the door

To answer the PM's this is why the black with gray, these are the seats I'll be using:

The guy doing the body work and paint was having trouble making the panels line up on the drivers side so its going in for a frame check and adjustment if neccesary

Still waiting for it to come back from the paint shop, prepped and painted a few more interior pieces though.

Yes I am, I'm going to have it above the door as well to cover the headliner edge. Not sure how I'll do the rear corners yet or if I will. Also intergrating a triple guage pod into the A pillar trim

You can use the factory single cab pieces in the rear corners, the only issue I cam up with was figuring out a way to trim above the b pillar in between the doors, I will be interested in how yours turns out. Also how are you doing your headliner? Are you puttting 2 factory ones together?

Good to know about the reg cab corners, I'll look for some. I was just thinking of running a strip across the B pillar. I plan on using two headliners and folding the edge over and securing with a stainless strip and screws

You will definently have to post some picture when you get it done, I might do mine the same, I really want a headliner if I can make it look good, I think if you got a single cab headliner for the front and maybe an extended cab for the back and put them together it would work out ok, especially if ya done some trim between them, when are you expecting yours back from paint?
