    At least you don't have the fake carbon fibre looking crap..
    Damn. You dissing my car, Rick?

    I have the OE fake CF crap. It actually looks about 1000x better than the silver, IMO. It just looks dark at a glance, and matches the black dash much better.
    I purchased the car with it already installed, though.

    That actually looks nice! I like that 'texture', as well.. what did you use? Did you do the door card pieces, as well? If so, how's the wear/tear on the grab-handle?

    I didn't realize your trim had also been "upgraded".

    I used stuff called plasti-dip. You can buy it at Lowes or Home Depot. It is really sturdy stuff, great durability, wont even scratch with a screw driver. You can get more or less texture depending on how far away you hold the spray can. I've painted everything other than the actual fabric, dome light, pillars. I didn't need to paint anything on the door cards as everything is already black. The one bad place for this stuff is on the oh s**t handles. They just flex and bend too much. Any other questions, I'm happy to answer.

    Do you remove the stuff from the car first, or can you spray in place?

    yeah remove everything. You never want to spray anything in or near your car. Overspray FTL. And just remember to let the stuff cure really good, especially in a traffic area. I would give it a good 48 hours to fully harden. I Have had this stuff on my car for almost 2 years and it still looks like it first did.

    Sorry for the delay. I painted my doorcard sections, circle vent surround, and cupholder trim all the same silver. Its a texture piant so its scratch resistant. The center dash is painted a gloss black that has a metallic dust in it which you can see in direct light. I have had them this way for almost a year and no wearablility issues.

    I finally got pics my car is a little dirty but here we go I used Krylon Fusion paint spray and used a Satin Black color came out pretty good, though this paint says you don't have to use primer I still suggest using it as I had problems the first coat around and had to re sand the surface and prime to make it stick evenly.
