I am going to start colour coding these air vents as a first step. Then I am going to colour code…
– facia centre panel
– centre console (when I get one)
– door bins
– and at the end I’m going to take the complete facia off and paint it
So this is the air vents I’m going to paint now…
All disassembled by using a small flat-top screw driver. I was kind of surprised by the strength of the clips, it almost broke my screw driver!
Now primed with standard white primer. I didn’t necessarily need to prime it, but primer forms a nice foundation for metallic paint on plastic material, so it won’t be scratched off that easily.
Painted with “Aluminium” paint for Halfords. I just love this sort of pale-silver colour! Lacquer was also applied (thick coats too), again, to prevent being scratched off too easily…
