New painted center console pics!

Hey guys my mechanic painted my center console for me yesterday / today, we also did the shifter... what do you think?

Matches the seatbelts!

You can also see my aftermarket heated seat buttons here:




Heres 2 others I took tonight while in the garage:

Looks great now all you need is a yellow Hummer, as luck would have it I just happen to have a supercharged yellow H2 on 37's for sale

I like it.

Interesting handbrake treatment. I had the rear-ward piece on mine recovered during a reupholstery project but I seem to remember it as being sort of flexible and I would think that the paint might crack or flake. I'm curious to see how it works for you.

Looks great man! Glad to see you back on here, you haven't been posting much lately. The only problem I have is the shot of the arm rest storage box. What's with the measly $1 bill in there man? Heck I've got more in change in my storage box. Listen man, you've got an image to uphold here what with the Lambo and Viper and all. That picture should have had a big old roll of Benjamins in the storage box, not $1.

Plus you're obviously out of touch with the new standard here. If you have a really hot girlfriend, which we know you do, then you need to include her in any photos like this.

Other than that, yeah it looks awesome.

lol kirk too funny. Honestly I havnt been driving it much, my girl drives it. I'm too busy with my other cars heh

Wingnut, you mean kinda like this?



A couple of my previous hummers were yellow and for 2008 they don't make yellow anymore, at the time I really wanted yellow. Now Im glad I got black and wouldnt go back to yellow for the h2. I kinda outgrew it. Yellow should be meant for sports cars.


Oh heres an oldie but a goodie at my old house:

that's what I saw too. I work in a bodyshop so my eye is "trained". I doubt your mechanic did that also, he sent it to a bodyshop to have done. it doesn't look like they put enough coats of paint on. we did one a week ago in red and had to prime it 3 times and paint twice to get rid of the pin holes that the texture causes. did they color sand it at all?
