So, this past week I was able to get some time and spice up my interior a tad. I coated my door handles with a metallic silver and flat clear coat, then I installed my R-design Center console, and finally, I redid the fading black plastic/rubber window trim pieces.

Let me get a pic from the front?<br>Nice work. Personally I never liked the sparkle paint when I did it, looked too bedazzled for me. But if it looks good to you, more power to you; I definately have a different style than most here lol. I suggest a new shift knob though...

Looking good Jonsi! Hope the install wasn't too bad for the center console.

I used the Rust-o-leum Metallic Silver, but having that makes it, like Chromecarz said, to bedazzled. So you have to finish it off with a flat clear coat, making the metallic less flaky, and more like an aluminum look.

Re: (Max Wells)

It hasn't worn off at all and I don't think it will. I put about 4 coats of clear coat, which makes it quite durable. I applied them every hour to let each coat cure, it took about a day. But I would suggest put as many coats till it's really smooth.
