    01 ETC Shifter plate ring

    What is the best way to "polish or paint" the Bronze or chrome shifter
    ring on the console? I took it apart, but it looks like all one piece that's stapled into the wood. Any ideas? or if i rip it apart can i get a new one.

    A little polishing compound should do the trick.

    That's what i'll have to do. i'll take it back out and sit at the workbench with it. i have this
    bad feeling i'll be sanding, primering, and painting though.

    It probably is plastic so go easy with any abrasive. Depending on it's condition, maybe all it needs is some soap and water.

    Seems to look really faded to me and missing some of the bronze coloring. I guess when i take it out, I'll be able to clean it real good.
