Looks great! I am wanting to do this to my dash and door panels but in IBM paint. What did you use to remove the paint? Do you have ABL door panels? Looks awesome though, can't wait to see the finished product!

JLugo, I should have known you'd do better than me. What'd you use to strip it? That looks great! Show pics when done.

I got my fronts painted from my f*ckup on the passenger side panel and I actually like how they look better than painted on the inside.

Almost done!

All I have left is the driver side door panel.

I used the Krud-Kutter Graffiti remover instead of nail polish remover. I used the steel wool and wet sanded a little with 2000 grit sandpaper before polishing.

I did not mask off a thin line across the top for the ABL to shine through.

If you painted it from the back, then you shouldn't have even had to worry about masking anything.

I could be wrong, but from what I know of, even if you paint it from the back there is still a very thin line you have to mask off where the light shines through. If you look close at your OEM color and plates, you can see that there is a small line that isn't painted grey

Ah, yes, I know what you're referring to. I masked might when I did them correctly, then, but I was just following the OEM paint pattern, I didn't know I was providing an area for the light to shine through. Too bad mine went to sh*t lmao.
