Do you have a side by side picture of what your refinished trim looks like with an OEM one?

I do not. Never had a good clean set to do the comparison.

Just thought I’d post some of my latest work so people can get a better idea of the type of work I do. All from recent projects.

1. ZCP wheel trim and SMG shift plate stripped, primed, re-painted, color sanded, 2nd coat of paint, then flat clear to seal the finish.











2. Regular M3 lower wheel trim, painted satin black to match the top black piece. Note that upper trim piece is NOT re-painted so you can get an idea of the color and sheen match.









3. Set of front armrests re-done in Titan color, lower parts stripped of “soft touch”, and also re-painted.

Alex- your work looks amazing and I've been looking for someone to tackle this (was flirting with just Cerakoting it all).

Is it too much a hassle to have the following done:
1. All coupe dash and center pieces redone
2. SMG paddles redone
3. coupe door + soft touch redone

Not too much hassle, no. I do have a couple of clarifications though - by center pieces you mean central console? Or the brackets with ashtray/buttons?
#3 Coupe door? You mean the armrests?

Please PM me to detail - let's figure something out.

Thanks!
Alex

The ZCP trim pictured above is mine. I’m very happy with the result.

Alex did a great job updating my driver/passenger interior side trim. Highly recommended and professional. I'll take some pictures when I have time to install the door cards back on.

Yeah, those armrest trim in alex's pics are mine as well. The drivers side was heavily scratched from the previous owner.
