Default Painted, Vinyled, or Sticker Bombed Center Console?

Just looking for Center Console ideas! Just picked up some extra trim pieces for dirt cheap, and I know I am looking for something far from stock. Show me what ya got!

I did mine in matte black with WRB specks flung on it. Looks stealthy with a little bit of flare. Far from overdone.

Paint it black. Otherwise it ends up looking like a high school locker; toss a picture of your girlfriend on there while you're at it.

Came out really good! What paint did you use? Any chipping problems? Did you do much to prep the surfaces? I was thinking of doing the 3m carbon fiber vinyl, but this looks really good!

Those ones look like its from the "Stickerbomb 2" book. Just go to amazon and search that. The stickers are paper based so keep them away from water.

I sanded with 400grit first, then cleaned it, primer, sand 800grit, clean, color coat x2.


^ simple version

Paint I used was alsa corp "killer cans". IMHO it's the best spray paint. I've also had good luck with duplicolor paints.

Finally painted mine this weekend with krylon fusion flat black. Also sanded/polished my factory hazard button, instead of paying $30 for a new one. Came out amazing.



Going to place an order for new knobs/buttons soon.
