    Thanks, mechanical stupidity grinds my gears probably about 5 wood screws into the bumper and fender and all it needed was 3 proper screws and a new bumper guide and was more solid then what it was but I always enjoy repairing things to make them better.

    Thanks ELCID86


    Found a DIY on the headrest guide and was surprisingly easy took about 10-15 minutes, I just followed what this guy said "just cut the tab" and it came right out! http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...07&postcount=9

    Alright got tired of seeing my trim around the shifter scratched up so I gave it a try and spray painted it, I really like the results i used satin black restoleum and came out a little more flat then the original trim but I like it. I was going very light on the sprays and after 7 coats barely made a difference, I went f it and sprayed it good with 3 more coats.

    Looks pretty good. Can you take a pic of it next to a non-painted trim piece for comparison?

    Yeah I think I can get the idea, thanks! Cool stuff. Is the pattern on the center console still very detailed or has the spray paint filled in some of the lines and made it less detailed?

    Since the shifter trim was scratched pretty bad I got heavy on it so it did fill it in a little bit but not really too bad still has its detail but the trim above the glove box cam out really good only 3 coats and has sharp detail in the lines.

    Im thinking my trim is purple due to sun exposure noticed my dash has a purple hue to it when I look at it in a certain angle

    No, the purple is because they used that as a base to get the color. There is no black essentially, you just go really dark in a certain color to get black. Typically they use blue, brown, or purple.
