So I had some spare trim laying around...

Decided to gather a few supplies:


And lay down a few layers of paint:


Results:




I wasn't sure how it was going to look but I think I'm pleased with the results. Still have to put a clear coat over it so this was really just a test fit.

*Edit*
I've been receiving emails asking if I would paint their trim in a similar fashion. The answer is yes but just realize the splatter pattern you get will vary and no two sets will be the same. I'm hoping somebody wants this done on a black base as that might look pretty sweet.

I'm liking it. Reminds me of the E92 techno violet that had it.

perfect! i have been thinking about this but never got around doing so... I might actually just rewrap it in flat white and do this, since its easily reversible.

Damn that looks great. You should have also done the steering wheel trim to tie it all in.

I love this. Saw it on the techno violet e92 and thought it was awesome. IIRC he had some parts in his engine bay done as well
