Yep, I ordered the paint from a website. I think it was automotivetouchup.com, it was a perfect match. I sprayed a layer of plastidip, some silver, rotorglow, and then some clear coat. They turned out great! And we're removable. I did the gauge rings, steering wheel controls, and shifter garnish

How did you get the silver off on the steering wheel to paint it??

There is a screw behind each piece. Get your steering wheel to a point where you can get a screwdriver back there, the angle can be a bit tough. Then once the screw is out, you have to unplug them from your steering wheel, after you get the assemblies completely removed there are screws holding the silver face onto the buttons and contacts (there are three little black screws on the back of the assemblies if I remember correctly, it has been a couple years since I did it). From there the faces can then be removed! My audio controls had been having issues so I cleaned the contacts behind the buttons while the assemblies where apart. Good luck!

Here is a different angle:

Haha, if I told my wife about any of the things I wanted to do before I did them she'd just roll her eyes at me. I would just do them and then show her and she liked most of them, she doesn't quite have the vision I do. I wouldn't exactly recommend spending a bunch of money and not telling your fiance, but something small isn't going to hurt. Now that I have a kid on the way there is not much of a car fund left! haha
