Hey, what kind of paint would I have to use to paint the black plastic trim(radio/heat control surround, instrument shroud/buttons, and instrument panel surround(behind the glass touching the gauges). Should I remove them and use spraypaint or use some other silver clearcoat-based paint? Any help is appreciated!<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

P.S.-I was trailing a Scoupe today and I have always wondered what people mean when they say 'S-Coupe'.<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> I *just* realized that the 'S' is bigger and stands out more and I have always pronounced the name 'scoupe', not 'scoop' like some retards. <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle> <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

So, silver paint help needed!!<img src=icon_smile_8ball.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, I just took the shroud off the radio/heat/mid. vents and I just spraypainted it. I got the gauge cluster out but the glass on the panel touching the gauges would not come off, so I used Testors model car silver paint and painted trim rings around all the gauges. I also painted the word 'Hyundai' in the digital clock filler piece. I took pics of it today and I'll have 'em soon!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

If you want to take the gauge cluster glass out , just heat it a little at the edges with a heat gun. Then try to lift it with a screwdriver( VERY CAREFULL.!!).
