For those of you who painted the center console yourself.
What kinda paint do you guys use?
What color (optional).
How do you make it shiny? and how do you put a thick coating on the top?
Thanks for your advice.


Got money to kill? save it for the downpayment!!!

Make sure you sand the plastics down well with wetsand 400 grit then use general auto primer, High temp engine paint and High temp engine paint clear coat.
