My my...... Just flip it upside down, and look at it. You'll notice 4 small tabs around it. Release those tabs, and the controls will pop right out.

Re: DIY For Removing Trim Parts and Painting Tips!

There we go, everything plastic in the front of my car is now silver! I did everything you did + the guage cassing, or whatever u wanna call it. Looks great, i used "Radiant Silver" from motomaster, its like the exact color of the car down to the little sparkles in the paint, looks awesome. Thanks for the DIY!

Damn, forgot the sunglass holder...national holiday tomorow...good thing

Re: DIY For Removing Trim Parts and Painting Tips!

and it did not make it darker, cause mine looked great until i clear coated it and it made it darker, and clear coat is suppost to make the base paint shine, and even then 2 days later when i touched it left a finger print, and when clear coat is dry (u can run your nail in it and it will not scratch it) "like car paint".

You're saying your clear coat wasnt dry after 2 days?

Re: DIY For Removing Trim Parts and Painting Tips!

The exact type of clear coat I used is in the first post. I sprayed mine in the garage, then let them sit for a while. But just an hour or so, definetly not 3 or 4 or 5 days. I cant think of ANYTHING that coudnt dry in a day or so. Very odd....

You sure its clear coat? If so, what type are you using?

Everything youre saying is just not making any sense to me. I mean, I understand what you are saying, but I cant figure out why your clear coat darkened your finish. And also why it is taking a year to dry. Im confused! The only thing I can even think might have happened is that your can of clear coat was defective somehow.

Re: DIY For Removing Trim Parts and Painting Tips!

the same thing happened to me when i sprayed my cell phone cover in sliver and then clear coated it. When i did my interior i had it sprayed with actual car paint at a paint shop to get the highest quality finish.

Not that I know of right off the top of my head. If I remember correctly, I did not attempt to remove it because of its difficulty.

Re: DIY For Removing Trim Parts and Painting Tips!

just did mine.

pretty easy for the time spent.

cost me about 30 bucks.

and thats because i'm between houses and needed masking tape, exacto knife, primer, aluminum paint, and alchol, and rags for prep.

could have been cheaper if I was sporting any of that in the house already.

awesome DIY! I like it!
