I have a black shifter (the base all black one) on my v6. If you wanted to trade, or something I could be open to it but I have no idea how to remove the shifter lol and what it entails to put another one back in.

Just PM me if you'd like.

It's a liquid rubber substance used for coating pretty much anything. Really cool stuff.

I found Carbin Craft makes replacement dash pieces out of real carbon fiber.
The looks is good but the cost is a bit much. Maybe if it ever goes on sale lol

JLT has some Carbon dash pieces as well, but still a bit pricey

No JLT only has a few real cf parts for the engine bay dress up. Those interior pieces are hydrocarbon (fake)

I'm actually painting my chrome pieces red with the carbon fiber. I originally had tape on them that I painted red but today I took the tape off and painted the pieces themselves. I got the idea to do this after reading your thread here. What did you use to paint the chrome pieces though? I'm using red spray paint so that if I decide to remove the paint, it won't be too difficult.
