    Cant decide on centre console colour.

    Im in the middle of priming my centre console and i really cant decide what colour to spray it.

    My car is Nocturnal Blue, which is very dark, and when i did a test spray on a small piece it looked very dark inside, almost black.

    Should i go for a silver colour, or as close to the original gun metal grey as i can? I liked the original colour but mine was very badly scratched.

    Or something different?

    what does gun metal grey look like?

    I've seen umm, what's it called? Star Silver? I've seen that & it looks smart. Just wondered about G.M.G. Anyway, the silver looks decent imo, so if G.M.G. isn't far off then roll with it.

    I just imagine it to be a b!tch & then dome to do in & about the MFD display as you're just just spraying on to a 'flat' bit of plastic. Imagine it'd be a pain getting things even & without runs.

    How did you cope with doing it?

    im doing mine in white. The interior is black and grey leather so Im hoping it will brighten things up a bit and it matches with my under bonnet colours
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    There was a thread on centre consoles recently & a lad put up his which was white. Can't remember who it was though.

    At a very wild guess it might've been SRiTaff, but i could be totally wrong there. All i can remember is it was posted up recently. Looked not bad either. Hadn't seen one in white before.
