    Posted: 20 Sep 2012 at 2:47pm

I recently gave 12 plastic interior elements to a painter for a glossy black finish Big smile

I have painted: window switch holders, center console, 2wd/auto/lock and seat heater switches holder, rear armrest cup holder, door grip holders, door release cup kinda thing from the rear doors.

I can't wait to see the center console in glossy black paint!

 I will pick'em up in aprox. 2 hours now and come back with pics Big smileBig smileBig smile

It gives a more classy and luxurious feel to the interior, maybe we can persuade Nissan to make the QQ this way Big smile

Here is the rest, incl. the center console Big smile
 
It took about a week to be done because the center console and the front switch holders had some kind of a rubbery film on them (instead of paint) and it was necesary to remove that film.
 
I took the parts to a paint shop since painting them yourself with a can spray won't work...
 
I now have "Steinway Piano Black" interior in my beloved QQ LOL
 
Did I mention the fact that I am planning on installing leather on the lower center console (where the gear shift, cup holders are)?Big smileBig smile

ask if they can mix a bit of plasticizer in the paint for the bars and stick on a few extra layers of colour and clear, should make it a little more flexible to resist those stone chips.

that's the only thing that's stopping me having my side bars done in matt black.. stone chips would be a nightmare.

May be better to have the bars powder coated rather than sprayed.  I had my front stainless steel grille and rear bumper chrome trim powder coated for £30 each. When I get my side bars I will be getting them powder coated.

I had the black powder coated ones on the Rav4 - brilliant, and now I get what you're saying CF, reckon the white would look good... but defo agree on powder rather than spray...

Sorry but not to my taste I'm afraid.

Plus risk of bad reflections on windscreen from the shiny centre console.

Powder coating (my home kit) has to go to 400 degrees before the powder becomes a coat, depending on type of plastic it may be doable.

In saying that, I have use a hot air gun on wood which didnt turn out too bad but I doubt a professional company will risk it.

I think you can only powdercoat metal as they 'earth' the part being sprayed, then it is baked in an oven.
 
Regarding the interior parts, they sell these in Japan for about £70 + shipping and customs. Looking at £130

I was about to post about the electric side of the coating process but you beat me :)

There are ways to powder coat NON metalic parts, I have done a few and they turned out pretty good.

Anyway, thats a good find, can you post the link??

Its a Japanese 'Ebay' site. They bid on your behalf. I bought the 2012 Dualis grille from there
 
 
 
If you type 'Dualis' in the search box it will list all the qashqai parts or type 'dualis interior' for the panels listed.

Loving the centre console, I was thinking of doing this as the Qashqai interior feels a little flat and plasticy compared to my old MINI.  How easy is it to remove and refit?
