Got one that’s arrived today. I’m going to have it trimmed in alcantara and have currently sanded and primed it, planning to use bmw attic silver as apparently this is a close match to oe unless anyone has a better match but what do people do with the black Porsche engraved part?? Spray it all silver and live with it or does anyone have a top tip for refinishing it in black. I just asked my missus if she fancied doing it with a small brush and I got ‘the look’ so I think she’s off the team on this one!!

This should work.... worth a try ??? was needing to do this when I had mine done.

I looked into a few ways, my mate suggested this....


Sand then polish up to get it smooth, then spray with black spray paint to fill the lettering and then buff the over spray off. Not a standard look, but good enough for me.

Not bad but I guess you then have to do the gear knob?

I'm pretty sure my handbrake lever has been swapped for some reason (wear?) so I need to look into getting one of these.

On a recent Porsche Turbo S exclusive video they filled it with a runny black paint.

Thought about the polishing but it won’t look the same as the gear knob was my thoughts. I assume Porsche must use some sort of press with paint to get the factory finish. Like potato printing but probably more ‘german’?!!!😂

It'll be a highly liquid paint applied using a syringe type applicator that then dries to a hard finish - as the clip that PeterS provided shows.

Try diluting some enamel paint with thinners, put it in a syringe, put the handbrake in a soft-jaw vice and gently squirt the paint into the lettering, then leave it for 24 hours somwhere warm.

Yes Craig, surely you have to do the gearknob insert the same? Question

Unless you have the mega rare factory option of mis-matched handbrake and gear lever inserts?

Or as it says I'm the Tequipment catalog -

"Mis-uhn matchen hand-bracken und gear-change wiggle-stick" ??

What's the option code for that again Craig? It seems to have slipped my mind. Very Happy

I like your style.


I painted mine silver then filled the letters with black paint. I then wiped the excess off with thinners and wiped straight through the silver again to bare metal. frustrated

So once I found all the items I'd thrown across the room and I tidied up, I painted it silver again and that's how it'll stay until I can pluck up the courage to have another go.

Anyone know where can I find a syringe suitable for this job?
It definitely sounds like the best method.

Cheers Dammit.

Thought they'd be harder to buy for some reason. They're even on eBay.

My fear is that anything wiped over will damage the silver paint and if there is no way of doing a real accurate job of the black it could look worse than just left silver. My wife has nail art brushes, they are very small hence me asking her?!? Probably reluctant due to my ocd and keen eye to details. Surely for mass produced items Porsche don’t do that method on the video ?!? Pretty tedious for herr or frau Schmidt if they do?!?

iId assumed they would be handing them out at the local druggie advisory centre (may not be the correct term)

You could pop in to your local needle exchange?

Unless I miss my guess injecting dilute enamel paint is probably unusual, therefore the diameter of pin that a needle exchange has to hand may be inadequate. Also the sharp point isn't a benefit for out application - the rounded tip of the Amazon pin is more suitable.

Also, it's less than six quid and they'll post them direct to your home.

Packs of strawberries come with free needles in them now also I heard in this week's news, that could be easier than the needle exchange or Amazon if it came with your weekly ocado shop..

On a more useful note, I've used rustoleum Universal spray in titanium silver to spray some bits and that looks pretty oem, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F200749806695
