Its pretty str8 forward once the panel is off. I am not sure how to remove the panel but will need to figure out how by the time my silver one comes. The easiest thing is to take it to mako or a local paint shop. Probably would cost around $80. Or you can just remove the panel, sand it with 3 types of sand paper, clean the surface, apply primer, apply a few layers of the paint you want and let dry

I was wondering if you bought the dash aftermarket, or if you painted it yourself. If you did paint it yourself, could you give some tips? It looks sick.

Thanks!
i painted it myself, i just used plastidip, like yours mine had a few scratches on the passenger side (girls put their feet up, hate it) but the plastidip filled in the scratches, then i hand painted the focus blue with some model car paint lol, just be careful taking everything apart, dont be in a rush, and really care putting it back together so you dont scratch the new paint, o and

Bump!

How hard was it to get the center part (by the radio) and the cupholder trim out?

I would like to get mine painted black. I really like the interior of the car, but that silver plastic says cheap.

I finally got around to installing my silver dash cover lol.

I will do a custom paint job on the OEM black one if anyone is interested. I will sand, prime and paint it any color. PM me if anyone is down
