Looks very nice!!! I wonder what color I'm going to paint mine. I have the Montana Grey leather.

Suggestions, anyone?

I removed the parts myself and sanded them down.
They were painted in a local bodyshop, i had to pay them 50 euro's (about the same as 50$) for the job.
The only bad part of it was that I had to wait 2 weeks for them to be finished.

Were all the pieces hard to remove? A body shop quoted me 1200 because they were a pain in the ass to remove!

The dash trim and the center console were very easy to remove.
Only the armrests (especially the rear ones!) are harder because the door panels need to be removed.
The whole job of removing them should take about 1-2 hours.

the pieces are very simple and easy to remove..theres a DIY somewhere but i dont remember where :sad: the dash panels you simplly start at the passenger side all the way to the right, stick a flat screwdriver and pry it slowly open. From where you manually can start pulling each piece by piece. The center i have on clue for Steps, but for mannys just pull the knob, then the boot, then its 4 screws. The door panels you need this special pry that painters and plumbers use. Its a very sturdy and thin pry with a handle and use that to take apart the leather segments with the plastic pieces.
