    For all the people that want to see it sprayed black, i did it last week and i also did my grill, as soon as i can find the damn camera cable ill put up the pictures.
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

    Wow, great job, really makes a difference to your interior!

    I currently have the black 3D cube stuff which for some reason makes my interior look very 1980's... Not really me. Plus, the door pieces are very ring-scuffed from the previous owner. Have tried black permanent marker/paint etc but still looks crappy.

    Will be VERY interested to see Joe's pics.

    Piano black would be rather sexy as it would match my sapphire black exterior...

    So after rooting around for the cable ive finally found it!













    And my black kidneys! Mind the dirty car





    I havnt actually lacquered any of it yet, especially with the kidneys, seeing how it all settles before a couple more coats of paint then lacquer to get a deeper gloss and shine!

    Hope this helps people decisions.

    I was thinking red, but worried it will look tacky (Cars black, wanted red calipers)
    I have piano black, it's gorgeous

    Erm well let me think,

    well i actually went back and got more stuff after realising i hadnt got enough.

    1 x 500ml can of grey plastic primer
    1 x 500ml can of primer, ( you can use plastic primer but i had a can of standard grey primer in the garage!)

    2 x 500ml gloss black spray paint,
    2 x 500ml clear lacquer,

    and now sand paper,

    80grit for kidneys,
    600 wet n dry to make a key on in car plastics
    1200 wet n dry on primer to prep before painting!

    Remember real light coats and lots of them, i had to do at least 5/6 coats before it started to give it that real gloss black effect, the more you do the deeper the shine!

    Tip; if youve got the shitty grey vinyl all i did was get a bucket fill it with boiling water and soaked the plastics in it for 30 mins, it then just rubs straight off no effort.

    Also prep your area before you work, the grey primer gets everywhere!!!!!!!

    Do it in the garage if you can and hang newspaper over anything you dont want to get it on!

    i also set up like a washing line in the garage to hang them while they dryed out, they shouldnt run if your doing the coats light enough!

    I held the trim with an old pair of plyers, that way i could do it free hand and not worry about not covering it properly as i could move it 360degrees no problem, i held it by the metal pins that come out with the trim.


    Hope ive helped, i would do a write up but unfortunatly didnt take any photos!

    joe

    The black looks good Joe - I thought about doing mine black, but being a 325, it has the black headlining, which with the black leather, I thought it woud all be a bit dark (and Audi!).

    Agree about the primer getting everywhere - it doesn't stick but you get a very very fine grey dust everywhere.

    I built mine up with lots of finr coats - its was the sanding / scraping of the vinyl that took the most time (and was boring to do - at least when you start painting, you feel like your getting somewhere).

    I was going to buy some new trim, but second hand stuff on e-bay was fetching £120 plus, so I went down the paint route and am really happy.
