PostPosted: Mon Oct 07, 2019 5:50 am    Post subject: Should I spray my centre console silver?? Reply with quote

Hi

Just thought I would post on my winter project of refreshing my interior.

Stripping out my 997 interior with a view of re spraying a few parts, ie. Backs of seats, centre consol, rubbing down and re dying seats.

Currently I have my car interior in my back room, the missus is well happy, not😂

I've managed to strip down the hard back seats and preparing to rub down and spray. I'm going to spray them silver the same as the car.

Question is should I also spray the centre consol the same colour? The rubberised black is rubbish. I thought a silver with a couple of clear coats would last better?

Any thoughts?

+1 for Wicked... flawless work!

Why not go for silver belts too... probably best not paint them though! Thumb

I’m amazed Phil hasn’t mentioned body coloured door spears. Call a doctor Confused

I especially like the centre console next to the hob😂🤣

Joking aside the they all look great, I'll post once I've finished. Might be a while so I'll do some as I go along.

One question someone may be able to answer.

I've stripped the seats and removed the foam backing. The foam backing is held on by what I can only describe as a sticky/rubberised/mastic type goooo.

What's the best thing to stick the foam back with on the seats??

You could save yourself a big headache by getting in on this group buy and get your seat backs done at the same time Cool

Cheers for the heads up

To be honest I've purchased everything I need.

I'm going for it😂🤣

I'll post some pictures, good or bad once I've finished.

The bolster was worn on the driver's seat and the stitching was worn away. I got this done for £10 by taking off the leather and taking it into our local wedding shop. They done a great job using proper cotton for car seats.

I'm aiming to do the whole interior for under £300. This includes seat backs, centre console, seat repair and recolour of the whole interior including door cards
