The window controls look awesome -- you did that a while ago, right?

Sorry, I can't tell what you've done on the dash though -- did you cover the black in the center with a gloss black? That center as it comes from the factory is a dust magnet, so maybe covering would help with that? Anyway, it all looks sharp.

Yeah, the window controls were done before. The dash has vinyls applied to the center console trim but ony at the dashtop level. The lower area at the storage and shifter is not covered. I take a better pic to see how I did the cutoff point. The gloss black piece was left untouched, but yeah, it does attract and show dust easily.

Ah, I didn't mean the stock gloss black stuff, but in the second picture, the bin door looked glossy -- just a shadow and the way the picture was.

So why cover the stock flat black with flat black vinyl? Is it really different? Just for protection?

The area I covered has sort of metallic semi-gloss grey finish. It's similar to the door panel insert trims. It looks okay on the door panel and shifter surrounds but didn't care for it at the dashtop. Blacking out that section smoothes out the appearance and reduces glare. My silver GLS model's interior is a sea of grey, now with more black accents.

OK, I see it now. With shades of gray/silver/black and the lighting, it was hard for me to tell what you had covered, but I see it now. It does look good and looks like something that would be OEM.
