    Console button colour change?

    Can anyone suggest a way to change to colour of the 2 buttons on the console for air recirculation and heated rear window? Id like to spray them a different colour to match the rest of the unit, but without losing the backlite display bit? Its bothered me for a while and the only way i can think of is either to carefully cut out a stencil and peel it off after, or scratch away the paint after. Both ways seem really difficult and more than likely to fail, can anyone suggest a better way???

    You might find you can take the switches apart and remove the clear bit so you can spray the rest without worry

    you mean the symbols rather than the little on/off illumination bit?

    if so i don't really see any way around that tbh

    Got a set of buttons sat right next to me as I'm having my heater control unit converted to 23 LEDs and I removed the buttons before I sent my spare facia. The buttons are actually white, the black part is sprayed on and the small symbol must be stencilled out.

    Sorry. Can't see a way round it either.
