I have a 2009 SLK 350.
The paint is peeling off the radio and the # 1 button on the comand unit.
Does anyone know of a paint match for it.
Checked with the Australian:smile: company and they do not have one.
I read your threads on the button.
So is it possible to get a replacement button from one of your sources?
You seem to be very well connected.
The other matter is the finish coming off the comand unit by the volume control.
Are you saying there is no touch up paint available.
I really appreciate any help you can provide on these two issues.
Sorry Gary, but by the date on my thread, that was a while ago. Also both of our cars are definitely out of warranty.

and if he is still willing, he is fantastic at refinishing stuff like the buttons.
The front fascia can be removed and repainted , matt black spray gives a very similar finish ( check out my steering button refurb thread ) or you could go the carbon fibre covering way , either sheet vinyl or a kit ...
For the button you might want to look into picking up a cheap radio, it doesn't need to be comand for the number buttons and the Audio20's often go quite cheap , on eBay or similar and use it as a donor for the buttons ..
