Default New Mod - Console Glare FIXED!

Hello all -

Been gone quite a while. Love my RAM still! One thing that I did not like was the glare from the bright silver trim piece - so I painted it flat black after scuffing with 150 grit sanding block and here is the result - I love it - excuse the dust bunnies, I snapped it real quick before wiping it down

Side note - Windows finally getting tinted Thursday

Thank you - Dont use a flat head - I used a a old credit card - take your time so you dont snap it. There are 2 clips in the front, 2 on each side and 3 in the back. They are ridged so when you pull it up it will come out in clicks not all at once.

Thank you - Sure thing - do you mean after now that it is on or do you mean during the fix as in a how to? I have someone else that wants me to do theirs also so either is possible.

Thank you

I would recommend it to all Ram owners! I think this is an issue in some of their other vehicles, but not sure.

I know this is probably a dumb question but what kind of paint did you use?
