    Got my console cleaned up and painted today. That chrome trim is a pain to get back on. Give it a few days for the paint to cure, and in it goes.

    Looks good!!

    You can tell its from a first gen with the dual cigarette pack holders next to the ashtray. You would have to order it without cup holders in todays politically correct times. :rolleyes:

    Yep, my wife's 05 Makibu did not even come with an ashtray! You have to order the smokers' coonvenience option, to get one. Those slots are actually to hold the buckle ends of the seatbelts, cause its the outboard side that retracts. I would still rather have the cupholders.:D

    Great job. You have a $150.00 console for the price of a can of paint. Congrads
