    dismantled them mate. its only 1 screw on each side. but a spring did fire out and It took 5 minutes to find the thing so be careful.

    Would like to paint the streering audio control backing but not the other bits as I have fitted walnut facings to these. What type of paint was it that you used and was any rubbing down or plastic undercoat applied first? In all it looks a nice effort.

    Looks good, luckily my car came with the vents like that that dash is crying out for the chrome rings though
