i wouldnt say it looks good, but it definitely looks promising. Gonna look sweet if you finish it. But at the moment it looks odd having some blue here and some balck here and they grey for the rest. Nice job

Hey buddy, how did you dye/paint the leather console lid? what did you use? and how did it turn out? looks pretty good in the picture.

all i did with all the bits i painted, inclueding the console lid was use spray on grease and wax remover to clean the surface, then sprayed on plastic primer(cheap stuff from supercheap) and then painted all the bits with satin black vinyl paint (same brand as the plastic primer). as for the console lid it turned out better then i tought it would
