    Electric Blue or Black would go well with Silver.

    Ideally, get it done at a bodyshop. No matter how good you are with spray cans, you won't get that glossy, professional finish.

    If you just take all the bits out yourself, they should do it for pennies really.

    I disagree. I've just re-done my console after discovering the joys of wet sanding. Here








    Both done with rattle cans. Not quite perfect, but that's only because I only left the lacquer 12 hours before sanding. Go for it.
