yessir I sanded them and washed 'em then sprayed 'em. I did carefully take the shift bezels apart so I didnt have to tape much.
What grit did you use? I was also thinking about re-painting all my interior panels because the previous owners kinda ruined them. Then sitting in my Jeep today, I figured it would be too much work to take off every panel to repaint it especially the dash. Lazy-ness settles in.
I did the 3m wrap, but in a brushed aluminum flavor instead of carbon fiber.
