    Painting the ashtray . . . ?

    Hey guys,

    In the middle of painting the centre console, top to bottom, but I'm not sure how to do the ashtray. Obviously I cant spray the whole thing - is it possible to remove the plastic front from the metal mechanism etc?

    Otherwise, how could I spray it so only this part gets painted?

    nah just sand the frong down, and then spray it
    you won't need to spray the inside of it as you won;t notice once it's closed

    And remember to tape/mask up the rest of it so you don't get overspray.
