    Curious if anyone has had any experience with paint to restore an automatic console trim (silver) on my 69 Dart project. I've done some searching to not avail. The console trim I have is in decent shape, not perfect but beats replacing for new repo at $600.Any ideas?

    Heres my 67 chrome top plates. Chrome was good, I redid the silver and the black stripe. Used Mopar Argent Silver I got from Dodge store.

      I did the same as Steve...mine looks identical, except my console is copper.

      BTW, Steve, yours looks awesome!

          Thanks Dar, yours turned out great too...plus you got console tach lol, I got the meager dash one......
          I "cheated" with the black stripe and used trim tape from Can Tire.
