Painting your interior garish colours should be limited to Rice Rockets and VN Commodore owners who seem to have a fetish for yellow and green in thier interiors!!!

Sorry.........
each to ther own lucky i know what i am doing so it will last last and if it dont i can do it again maybe a different colour if i got the s**t with it by then and best of all i can do it back to original if need be
the joys of being in the trade hey

If you wanted to keep with the blue but tone it down a little you could always do a black base with blue pearl over the top

the quality of the paint job on everything looks good... is a bit too over the top for me.. but each to there own.. sounds good the future work... i wouldnt mind an aftermarket wheel either.. but with the airbag im not confident i wouldnt get picked on by a fussy cop.. and why would i want to downgrade the safety items in my car??

It looks good, but honestly, if you compromise looks over safety, best that you check with your local RWC centre in QLD to see if the wheel is legitimate.

Yea, I was certainly not detracting from your work, you've done a great job, it's just not my thing. IMO the worst thing about repainting your dash is getting all the little buttons to be the right colour!


Agreed i woulda done mine weeks ago if i could work out how the hell im gonna get all the little white bits painted back on the switches after i paint em black or charcoal.......
