My neighbor came over about an hour ago and asked if I could airbrush the console between the seats of his Mercedes he is trying to sell. I looked at it and said I would give it a try. So if I treat this as the laptop I got advice on then are these the steps I need? Buy 1000 grit sandpaper, degreaser, scotch bright and apply base coat, match the color and paint. I don't have any clear coat and nothing to spray it with. Any problems if I don't clear coat? Anybody tried painting anything like this? Advice welcomed and appreciated.
