Center Console Paint to match

Haven't updated this in a while so here's what I've been up to. Attempted to DIY. Spent hours on sanding and prepping. Time consuming but no issues. Laid down several layers of good primer. No issues. Paint was a disaster. I'm picky so fish eyes and runs in the paint wouldn't fly. Sand back down. Prime and try again. I ended up spending enough on paint that it would have cost me the same to bring it to a body shop in the first place. Lesson here is if you have metallic paint this can't be professionally done with a rattle can. Bring it to a body shop. $200 later I had this and it was perfect...
