Oem Wood Grain Painting?

[SIZE=2]Ok quick question... How easy is it to remove all the stock wood grain pieces and paint them like a metallic silver? I dont want to try and pull them off and have them snap or break.[/SIZE]

its easy. they all pop out. first, open the cup holder, and grab the lid........it takes a little muscle, but pull it straight up, and it should pop out. then at the back of that whole center trim piece, start popping it out there (thats where i found it easiest), and then youre good to go. if you do paint it, i would use some primer first maybe? or maybe a high, very high grit sand paper, just so that paint will have something to stick to. good luck.

Just pop them off. At first it may seem hard but it takes some muscles to tear it out. Keychain painted over his woodgrain and it turned out pretty damn nice:

In irwindale. If you take the azusa exit. There this whole street that has junkyards mainly for imports. I go in particular to this chinese shop that has mostly accords and rsx's. Good stuff


And I would never use that sticker dash crap. Painting or swapping is the best way to go

I use red scotchbrite instead of sandpaper. Then used bulldog adhesion promoter then trim black spray paint. Came out great.
