Hey all, next mod on my list seems like it's going to be painting the interior wood grain trim. I know how I can take it off (by snapping the melted part off of the back), but re-attaching it is going to be my question...how should I go about this? Screws?
Also, any idea on what color I should do? I'm thinking of using the flat black trim paint I used to paint my exterior body molding..or should I do something else? Maybe black spray paint, followed by clearcoat & then polished? I think that may be a little too much work.
Any ideas/advice is appreciated, thanks!

I found mine at a local hardwood store. I recently just wrapped mine in carbon fiber. it's alot easier to paint them if you want a flat color. Also the posts are very easy to snap off so you have to take your time. the dash trim was the hardest part to lay down. the doors are cake once you do one and get the idea. I did my dash after a few panels. Also I need to let some air bubbles out so don't worry about them in the pictures, I just didn't have a safety pin handy.
