delicious- try searching this forum, I think there's a recent post actually called "
interior paint worries". Painting is pretty easy if you do a little prep and most seem to use Krylon or Duplicolor or hobby RC car paint and a few coats of clear. Good luck!

this is a pretty limited how-to on painting.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/howtos/interiorpaint/

it basically tells you how to pop the piece out of the dash. I would find a friend or relative who has painted before to help you if youve never done it. The only problem i ran into was the paint not bonding with the plastic, but some sanding fixed it up really quick. Im thinking of adding an indepth painting portion to the how-to library to help people out.
