I got tired of looking at the appearance of my '04 SLK32 console and decided to fit it up. The previous owner had already replaced the radio so it was my turn to improve the overall look. The console was scratched and I wanted to change/update the dark wood grain without going overboard. First I contacted a local professional auto paint center and they color matched the console. The paint was ~$35. With the console still in the car, I did a little masking and sprayed the scratched areas using an airbrush spray gun. I only wished I had taken a "before" picture in order for you to really appreciate the final outcome. Secondly I decided not to install a standard dash kit but opted to have a vinyl wrap shop cover the console and door handle area. I selected a 3M black carbon fiber wrap. Once it was installed I used a 1/8" chrome trim adhesive and placed it around the edge of the vinyl wrap. You can see the results in the picture attachment. Hope you enjoy the pic.
