Painting non-mft Stereo surround.
Has anyone pulled the flat black stereo surround trim piece on the non-MFT dash? Im not sure if all of the buttons, screen, etc... are physically removeable from the trim piece so it could be painted. Was thinking of painting it either a Piano gloss black or with a color match to the exterior.

Yeah all of the vent trim pieces and buttons are removable, the screen is not attached to the surround trim piece. There are 4 screws on the back holding the buttons to the trim piece, once you remove those it easily comes off so you could paint it pretty easily.

I've been toying with this idea as well. I think it's time we started pulling things apart and documenting it.

Yeah I like the Tuscany Red and Arctic White interiors but didn't think either would go w/ blue exterior. So I'm thinking my own version in blue.

White most certainly would go with the blue. Going candy blue w/matte black outside and then flat white on various trim inside. It'll work.

Did anyone try this yet? I'd really like to see some pics.

I was about ready to do this, then I ordered an ST and realized it may negatively affect my resale if they don't happen to like it
