Guys, i got a part of the dashboard from those halfcut shops to replace mine as mine broke. its in mint condition, except for the paint thats been sprayed on by the ex owner of that halfcut.

so now, i'm looking for ways to remove the paint on the center console(color=beige) so that i can paint it black. tried using the paint remover, but its not good, as my center console is ABS as well..

what ways are there for me to remove the paint?

So, the carbon fiber sticker won't be fade although we park under the hot sun, because it been protected by the clearcoat paint!!

But how can we stick the sticker to our bonnet perfectly?? Which means, no bubbles and all that?? So, the sticker...
