I just followed the paint guide over at ecelica and deceided to paint my console. I used duplicolor metallic black. I took it all apart and painted everything that was painted in the factory color. I think it turned out nice, just need the ac decals. Let me know what you think. Here are a few pics.
After color, clear and polish
I will take some pics inside my car once I put it back together. Should look really good with my 03 interior.
