Did you remove the switch panel or just mask and spray?

Removed switch panel.
Cleaned and sprayed on the work bench.
Choose the spray color carefully.
The normal silver spray is a bit lighter than the original on the panel.

Just make sure of your color choice.

I'm looking at maybe doing all trimmings with dark grey hammer tone. Can't decide yet.

What I did with the photo above,
1. Cleaned with benzine,
2. Then sanded lightly with 1200 grit paper
3. Spayed grey primer.
4. Sprayed 2x coats of silver.

If I look at the sprayed one and compare to the original on the other side, the darker one looks a bit better against the light upholstery for my eye.
Suppose it comes down to personal feel.
