    Another changed my centre console thread!!

    I was fed up of the boring gun metal grey console in my car, so the search began to change it! Everything apart from the materials (paint etc) was bought from members on here, so thanks AOC!!

    I bought a console and all the bits to under the handbrake, a cubby hole thing, some chrome heater rings and air vents and some new gaiters for the handbrake and gear stick.

    All pics taken on my phone so please excuse the quality (or lack of)

    Here is the before picture


    And the after




    I am very pleased with how its come out, it was my first attempt at spraying anything too and has made the interior much tidier and fresher.
    I will try and get some clearer pics maybe too.

    Its just reflection off the paint mate, its all the same colour from the top all the way down to under the handbrake.
    I dont think the pictures do it any justice, was a bit too dark outside when i took them tonight as it was raining.
    The grey one had gone tatty where it gets marked so easily, esp around the cd player where it was changed and messed about with.

    Nice job, I went darker when I choose a colour for mine, the grey isn't that inspiring is it?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Its Vauxhall Anthracite Metallic, i wanted a greyish colour so the grey part of my steering wheel doesnt look out of place so much (it matched the previous console obviously)
    Its come out darker than the colour on the lid of the can, but now it is fitted im very happy with the colour.

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though
