Finished painting my console / gauge trim, what'd you guys think? I'm happy the light still shines through for the A/C panel smile

Yeah, how long did all that take you? I've been tempted to do this for a while, but taking my car apart has never really appealed to me when I don't know exactly what I'm doing; neither has soddering.

Thanks, I actually used sticker overlays and covered up each of the icons before I painted it. I didn't think it'd turn out this well smile

This project actually took me like 4 days. I had to go back and forth between the store for some supplies too. But I'm glad I finally finished thumbsup

Hmm you could try changing up the lights behind the A/C console. There's an install guide in the install section if you want to check it out. Besides that you could replaces your gauges or just be creative and think of replacing anything that lights up in your car to be blue grin

I was just real careful when I was wet sanding around the A/C area, and no the stickers don't come off untill you peel them off. smile

Hey thanks, I have RJautoworks gauges with blue LED's that I soldered for my gauges. http://www.rjautoworks.com

The blue behind the AC panel is a neon tube that I got at target.

I used the stickers to cover up the little icons on the AC panel while I painted it. I took them off later so the light will shine through even after painted.
