Default Plasti Dip Center Console

What do you guys think?

The center console lid is at the upholstery shop getting wrapped in black leather.

Yeah but how hard is plasti-dip to touch up? I mean all you gotta do is spray it then rub your thumb over it & its blended in perfectly.

Has your dash been recovered up at the base of the windshield? In the last pic it looks like you've got suede or alcantara up there.

Center console looks good, should look great once the black armrest cover is on there.

I had the top dash piece cover in suede.

I like that. Seen it in person and it looks nice!! My only concern would be the suede fading in the sun but it looks like its holding up just fine to me.

It looks good, but I doubt that'll hold up very long. I would have tried something a little more permanent.

I found a black console for a CTS and put it in mine. I wanted the raised armrest and extra storage. It was $100 at the junk yard. I like the look of it with my tan interior. But yours does look good. Just hope it holds up for you. Anyone need a tan console?

Looks awesome! I love your suede dash piece, I'm going to do that this weekend! I did my headliner, pillars and sun visors and I still have some left over. I got upholstery headliner grade so I'm not concerned about fade.

Pics when you get it done. I'd like to see how it came out. Custom stitching it up?

I plan to do black suede up top and on my pillars and stuff as well.

I also have a perfect grey console if anyone needs one. $100 shipped. Swapped mine to a black one from another V but i'm considering swapping the arm rest alone to a base CTS arm rest for the added storage as well.

The added storage is a big plus for me. I took it right off my wrecked 03 and right onto my V.

Looks great! Did you take it to a local upholstery shop or send it in somewhere?
