look like woot?
i spray 2coat of base coat (grey) and sand it with 2000grind sand paper (to fill the small scratches)
then silver color paint (3 layers, there are a lot of different silver, just get the one you feel the most pretty)
then clear coat. first layer light, second layer heavy. third layer light.

the job no where near professional done tho...i just go with wut the can says.

i did not paint my console~ just those nobs

ill post pic of them on my car tom.

Maybe he painted them both, because I believe that all the stock ones are light gray.

haha, sorry for the confusion.
the silver one is painted. the other one is not painted but sanded.

and the green thing in the middle is just the tape to cover up spot that should not be painted.

^^^Turn the ignition on and pull the shifter into 1 then change the angle a bit. You'll get it.

I like the sanded black. Maybe I should have changed my dash color to green. dammit! angry
