    Painted the radio surround.

    Need opinions?
    I'm sick of the purple, I wanna go back to original colour.. but I can't because of the custom gear surround thing.
    Should I paint the rest silver? or get paint close to original and paint it that colour..?

    Up to you mate. But IMO I would paint it silver to match the radio trim.
    Good job by the way.....

    That surround looks fine but would be too much if it was all that colour. I'd choose a darker colour closer to the climate control if I were to do the lot, once again in a matt or non gloss finish.

    Yeah, well I was just looking at a interior picture before I painted everything.. and the original color looks so much better.
    I'm over the P-Plater Mods. :p

    Yesterday, washed - clayed - machine polished then finished it off with two coats of wax. 6 hours later and the results were unbelievable. Never seen my car like this before.

    Maybe, they'd be the only two colours I'd do, but the end product is up to you

    Flushed power steering and checked fuel pressure, the reg was bleeding pressure but when I clamped the line and ran it up again it went to full pressure, now it's not bleeding off. Win win.
