If you want to skip the hard job, you can take the plastics to some paint shop...shouldn't cost that much

Thinking of getting some of my interior plastics sprayed.

I've always wanted the temperature control surrounds and secret compartment door sprayed glossy black to match the Sony headunit. And the auto shifters silver base surround done to match the glossy black shifter knob. Probably will also get the door grab handles done too but thinking about stopping there?

Reckon the dial surrounds, round vent surrounds and the 2 vents either side of the radio would look alright left silver?
The new face lift fiestas have a mix of silver and glossy black interior plastics and I think it looks okay.

And should I get the steering wheel 'V' done black to match all the bottom half, or leave it to match the higer up silver bits.

Decisions decisions.

Hi mate,

I've just sprayed my interior plastics this weekend, well, I've ordered some more Vision Blue paint as I haven't got enough to do the centre piece :P But I've done the ring air vents, door grab handles and the steering wheel 'V'. It looks so much better IMO but I can't wait to start on the whole centre piece as I think that will really finish it off, so for me I would say for what it's worth to just do it :)

Ah cool, reckon you could post pics of everything, I haven't seen vision blue interior plastics before?

Cool, thanks.
I'm looking at removing my plastics at the weekend.
(My thoughts on leaving my vents silver was because the headunit would have to be masked off to spray the vents either side of it, plus then I'd be able to leave the dial surrounds silver too (not even sure where to start if I were to remove them)

Hi mate, I've just put back the centre console and installed the Mountune short shifter :) Really pleased with all the results.

Are you giving your plastics a go?

That looks good! all coordinated with your exterior now. You should get a vision blue DMB overlay for the steering wheel too.

Funny you should say that, I just removed them this morning. Just got to find a security screwdriver set in the garage so I can remove the steering wheel 'V' - looks like it has star shaped screws??

Good work mate! Yes the 3 screws on the steering wheel are all little Torx (star) screws annoyingly. You'll find that most of the interior screws seem to be Torx! Have you got the primer ready to go then??

Well actually I'm being lazy - my dads friend at a body repair place around the corner is gonna do it. (Although I probably should have asked before removing everything but nevermind - fingers crossed lol)
