clean it really good and spray paint it. thats my only advice man, get plastic spray paint and hope for the best. maybe get a bottle of clear coat, might make it look better. i hope someone else chims in and helps you better then i did.

many LIGHT coats. i cannot stress that enough. and after about 5 or 6 get like a super fine sand paper like 800+ and wet sand it. then do a couple coats of clear coat. LIGHT coats. buff to high polish.

i stripped the mesh stuff off of my front speaker covers, then i wet sanded them and painted with Krylon "High Gloss" black, i did probably 7 or 8 really light coats, turned out amazing.

Hi,

I used a company called Aliens Stole My Console see: Custom Games Consoles by Aliens Stole My Console, they coloured my PS3 to match my motor, it's a perfect match and the quality is spot on definately worth the cash

Re: wanting to change the color my my console. any help/aadvice?

Stay away from Duplicolor. Their **** is ****. With silver, I'd practice on something first (not from your car).
I always hear people bitching that their silver paint didn't turn out the way they wanted it to. So get a chunk of broken plastic or something, prep it the same way you're going to prep your panels, do the same amount of coats and clear coats. Make sure you're happy with that first before hand.
I personally use primer on my interior panels, I've been told it's a waste of time. So your call on that.
Lastly to add, any kind of armor all or interior cleaner will leave a protective coating on your panels (even if they're not shiny and clean anymore). Paint will not stick to this coating. Make sure you clean them first, maybe even use a good degreaser on them.
