    console paint code?

    does the mk4 astra coupe turbo, to be exact, have a certain paint code for the centre console?if not, does anyone know a name for the colour? (or used something similiar to touch some bits up?)

    you need to sand back to bare platic so its smooth then use filler primer on it. There is a rubber coating on there which needs to be removed as this reacts with paint. I used some carb cleaner to get this rubber coating off and then sanded it back.

    there is a how to in the how to section. Looks much better. although i am driving round with no centre console. And i have taken my gun metal colour one out and picked a spare up from the scrappy.

    little and often is the process right?
