Thinking of painting center console
I'm thinking of painting my center console and gauge trim silver but what'd you guys think? I know what paint to use and I even have the overlays for the A/C control panel ... I'm just not sure if I want to do it or not. confused

Where'd you get the overlays from? I tried that guy on newcel.org and I think he's gone.

That's what mine looks like. I didn't paint my AC console either. Too confusing.

heheh luckily I got my A/C decal weeks ago and my center console + air vent pieces are in the shop right now for paint. They charge me $200 thumbsdown thumbsdown for the project to be painted royal blue. heck at least it's profesionally done and they have to paint like 14 little pieces, but still it's too much ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...wish I did it myself thumbsdown thumbsdown
