    Painting my centre console any advice?

    As title really. Just bought the sat Nav console from the stealers in black. Going to spray it today just wondering if there is any advice that will help me do it properly? Read the how to seen something about the paint reacting with it if sanded too much?
    Any advice is much appreciated thanks in advance!

    Are you sure its not the other way around about the sanding? I gave mine a light sand and had the paint react and then had to sand it down again & again until I got it looking......ok lol.

    also if your using an aerosol then keep the can away from the centre consol but not far just enought to lightly spray it, as i have found when spraying plastics bits can turn funny so i puts coat after coat after coat and build it up instead of going for say 2 thik coats if ya get me ?

    take your time and be patient too as if you rush it it wont turn out good! you have bits were the paint has ran etc.

    good luck tho
