more painted console pics

here are pictures of things that were painted plus the rear light and 986 badge modifications. i was kind of rushed on the painting due to me wanting to see it in the car as soon as possible and let go of little blemishes. since i know it looks pretty cool with silver trims, i might redue some of the impert pieces again when i have some time. but pretty happy with how most of the paint job turned out.

Awsome job on the console. Did you have to remove it to paint it? If so was it hard?

Good job, looks like you skiped afew things though... like the ashtray and windows switch housing. I see you went with the 986 emblem on the rear, nice touch but its alittle too high as far as placement.

Look how close mine is to the spoiler, same distance as the original Boxster emblem.

lancelot: thanks for the comment. everything was removed for painting purposes and i found a way to do it through searching this forum. i can't stop myself from saying how awesome and helpful this forum is. removing and installing trims and console were rather easy with boxster especially when you can download the manual. i got this link from previous posting here: http://www.porscheteam.nl/werkplaats/handboeken/handboeken.html


CJ: i actually painted the ash tray glossy black. i was testing out how black highlights would work with silver console. it worked nicely with center vent area but not for the ash tray. i'll probably repaint it to silver soon.
as far as 986 badge, i removed the boxster badge before i got 986 and wasn't sure which height it was supposed to be. i was just concentrating on centering it and ended up little high. i might lower it and paint it chrome if i decide to reposition it. btw, your signiture picture was my motivation for going with 986.

if you reposition the 986 badge, make sure to check your kerning. the number spacing is too wide. looks weird.
