Switch cover

Sprayed drivers door switch cover and fitted another mirror switch with button for folding mirrors, getting the bits together to replace manual fold with electric fold mirrors. Thanks to @DigitalEye for door card removal how to.

I took 2 days because of leaving the primer overnight to set properly but you could paint all in a day i suppose. The longest job was getting it all out so i took the back switch gear out and rubbed and prepared that then primed it and while that was set aside i took the fronts out repeat then the center console so that I wasn’t standing around waiting for things to dry between coats

If you mean sanding and panel wipe etc literally minutes the paint is so thinly coated
