    Hey iv had my car a few months now and startin to do it up, I know it aint much but something that sticks out like a sore thumb for me is the purple parcel shelf I was thinking about turning it black as in time i want to tint the back windows and put black leather seats in there. Any advice on how to go about turning the parcel shelf black?

    I've aerosol'd the one in my coupe before and compact parcel shelf. max cost was £2.50 for a black can. No need to spend money on putting fabric pver it unless you want to?

    I have satin blacked both of mine. I did the 325 nearly 2 years ago and the paint does not come off at all. Just use a decent quality paint.

    This is the one I did in my 318 a few weeks ago.
