Default chrome piece around shifter

The chrome piece around the shifter in the middle console does anybody know if this piece comes off. I'm tired of driving down the road and having the sun blind me when it reflects off the chrome. If it does has anybody tried painting this to keep this from happening.

it does come off fairly easily
if i remember right, you can either use a trim tool or if your careful a thin flat screwdriver

many members have used something like sticky back carbon fiber, wood, camou, etc

similar to what is on this site, look around on ebay too, i'm sure someone will tell you where they picked theirs up

It should pop right off. You can paint it or, like I did with the ring on my SRT, wrap it.

are you talking about the fairly large squareish chrome ring, or the small wierd shaped ring that is truely around your shift linkage????
If it's the larger one, it pulls up easily...just work your way around it as your pulling up on it, you can start it with a flat tool like a trim tool or putty type knife, once you can get a grip on it, just go slow and gently, if I recall, it has about 9 attachment points....just don't force it, .... If you want to paint it, sand the shinny chrome finish off first....your paint job will hold up better.....you can buy low gloss interrior paint, matched to any color at an automotive paint supply company..but you will need a paint gun and compressor, these paint supply companies also sell many standard trim paint colors in aresol cans also

Check out plasti dip, I did mine & it works great and you dont have to sand it. I have had mine out several times and i pull the whole center section out and it pops up with it.
