Default 2014 center console

I just bought this, my second camry, a 2014 SE. I used to have a 2001 that we bought new, liked it really well and sold it after 13 years. It was a great car. This one however has a glaring flaw, and I mean that literally. The silver painted center console around the shifter is just unbearable in the sunshine, the glare is just a killer. After about a month of driving it I decided to do something about it. Medium gray paint and clear coat.


I really like the look of it so I'm going to do the door handles this weekend. It still has some glare but its not anywhere as bad as it was.

Default All done

Just completed painting the door arm rest covers. They now match the center console I painted earlier. I also carved a new shifter **** out of maple burl wood. It turned out pretty good so I made one for my wife's car also.

Are using some type of paint for plastics?

Nope, just a can of Dupli-Color car paint in a rattle can that I picked up at Auto Zone. Also clear coat over that to keep it from getting scratched through to the silver under it. It's pretty durable.
