I saw somewhere someone else attempt this and thought it looked all right. So I tried it and voila it looks pretty good in my opinion. I pried the center piece out with a house knife, it popped out easy enough. Then took some 400 grit wet sand paper and sanded off the silver, sanding it from top to bottom always in the same direction. I then used my wife’s red nail polish and simply slathered it over the numbers to fill them in and then wet sanded off the excess. It was actually quite easy.

Take a look and tell me what you all think.

Looks pretty good. You can paint the whole piece with some clear to make it all shinny if you want. And it will protect it from getting scratched. But you did a good job, it looks good.

looks good, but I'd rather get a new knob, the leather ST knob is nice...

Check it out. What do you think? Does it match better with the red stitching or should I just leave the boots done with gray stitching. I really want it to look like a factory job. I didn't make a new e-brake yet because I'm not sure if I like.
