im looking to spice up the interior of my black 6. I dont have the bankroll to get new seats or have anything professionally done (especially if i want to take a ski trip over the winter). What materials would i need, and how do I go about taking it apart and painting it.

thanks

You mean the center face plate of the radio/cd player? For sure you would have to remove the radio head unit. I did this recently, though I didn't remove the face plate. In regards to tools/materials, I'm assuming spray paint and clear coat, along with some sand paper to prep surface; again, I'm assuming.

I think blackmagic painted his 3 area, so check his ride out, though I think he got it professionally painted. In regards to 2, can't say I've seen anyone with this area painted, doesn't seem like a good idea to me; for sure not a DIY job. Professionally though, it might look good.

i agree for sure not a diy job but its unique if you want to do it, i think it could look cool if you go with a cool color.
