Question on center console?

sup everyone, I am about to paint my center console, I was just wondering how hard is it to remove the paint,I wanted to find out becuase when you go trade your car in if the center console is painted you know the dealership will give you less money for it.

you won't be able to remove the paint.

But.. trading a car in is a bad idea, you won't get aything NEAR what the car is worth

As long as it doesn't look like shit it shouldn't affect your trade in value wtf

+ the people that will be looking at it usually don't know crap about the car anyway.

I got mine at Canadian Tire. I'm not familiar with too many places like that in the USA (I think any place that sells auto parts should have factory matching paint.) I'll take a picture of the can tomorrow. It's DupliColor paint i believe, works really good on plastic too.

aslong as it's a nice color & you do a good job painting it, the dealer won't say anything, atleast my dealer hasn't said anything about it. I'd go with black 'cuz at nite the stock green led's look really nice.
