i'll try and get some better pictures tomorow with the light hitting it. i think the only reason it look white is because its a light silver and my pda doesn't take the best pics in the world, but if you were to see it in person you wouldn't mistake it for being white.
the only reason i used the clear coat is to add a little protection from minor scratches. you can see it shine a little when the light hits it, but i really just wanted it to help protect the paint.

Whose willing to trade trims with me? Everything painted silver on the dash: Two vents, silver cover around the bezel, and the trim where the HU goes, all for your stock trims. This is posted in the SoCal section... Don't know how we would trade if we're in different parts of the coutry... maybe you guys have better ideas...

for the console...take out the little sqare's next to your cigarette lighter plug and then look in side...you should see two bolts. unsrew those and a little bit of pushing here and a little bit up tugging there...you've got it out. then just unplug and unscrew everything.
