    Default Black CDR2005

    As anyone who has read my previous posts knows I am in the process of converting my dash trim, switches etc to black, to match the exterior. Well, all I had left to do was the CDR2005, but i couldn't do it until I got a spare fascia, well last week I got one on ebay for the princely sum of £3.00 (Steal). So at the weekend I set about the conversion.
    I primed, sprayed and lacquered the fascia and it looks a lot better than the gunmetal original, only problem is it's not as black or shiny as the rest of the dash
    So going to have another attempt at the original fascia to see if its anybetter. I dont understand why tho.... I used the same primer, Satin black spray and lacquer. (anyone shed some light). But below anyway is a few pics of the mod in progress. What do you think??
    Sorry about bad pics, done at night

    Thanks Tonci26,
    as said above in the process of doing the fascia i took off go try and get it to the same black as the rest. Dash strip is Black Sapphire so hopefully you'll see the contrast when i post a few pics after lunch.

    Hmm weird how there not shiney like your switches ... Probably need to flat it back down and relacquer and see how that looks

    Might have been a polish or finishing agent on the spare head unit causing it

    But it looks nice

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
