I was tired of the boring all black interior of my TA and wanted something to offset. I think the aluminum color accents well and makes the car much more appealing to the eye when getting in, the a/c knobs are painted as well. Also, did white face gauges that glow blue since my car is white with blue accents.

Did you use any type of clear on top? what did you do to prep?

I used 320 grit lightly scuffed her up til there were no shiny spots, cleaned up with alcohol then sprayed several coats. I didn't use a clear since it would dull the finish that I was going for but believe me, it's not gonna wear off. Didn't even need to color sand, but if you do the knobs the headlight knob is has a rubber coat so I did clear that one - not shown in picture.

Idk i've seen so many that are done poorly that it's not too appealing to me, maybe if i saw it in person.. I feel ya about the all black getting old though, it does spice it up :thumb:

Wow. Very nice indeed. Could you get some close up shots of it? Is the logo painted or a sticker?

I will try and get some up close soon - car is under knife at moment. The logo is painted - could add the sticker in metallic silver but wanted to keep it subtle.
