    for paint I used, I cannot remember the manuf., but it was a plastic specific spray paint and no primer just some very fine grit sandpaper to barely rough the plastic then wiped down with denatured alcohol to make sure no oils and to remove any Armorall that was on it then good to paint. I have heard stories of people doing similar thing and having the paint get sticky in the summer heat but the plastic paint bonds to the plastic trim and my car has sit in 100 deg full sun days and nothing

    That's what mostly matters! Just making the chic magnet a little stronger that's all.

    Hmmmmmm.... Sounds like it wouldn't take too long to do, what color did you paint it? My problem is that my WRX's RED (burgundy) , but our seats are blue/black (weird) & it would probably look even more crazy w/ a red center console... so I think it would be better for me to try to do it in CF?

    yea, but that's my issue! I think a red center console w/ blue/black seats would look kind of weird... right?

    There is a fabricator/vendor on wrxmodders.com that can fab up just about anything out of real carbon fiber. Check out some of his stuff. I'm going to order a center console, AC rings, and armrest covers from him.
