    Yeah I'm starting to notice some paint peel behind the driver side handle. Looks cheap.

    The buttons on the side of the nav screen are the first priority as far as I'm concerned. Those are the ones that are hard to find and change. The two big round buttons for the infotainment system would be nice, but you can buy them for $12 and change them in just under ten seconds.

    I'd buy the big round buttons and the door handles, but I really want the little buttons on either side of the nav screen. I had a guy that was going to make them with a CAD system but we never followed through--the big round buttons we had ready to turn in about half an hour--the little buttons took longer and we never decided whether to etch the descriptions on the surface or mill all the way through with one letter so you could read them at night.

    Anyway, if you're making this stuff and all I have to do is buy it, make the little buttons. I'll but the little buttons, the big buttons, the door handles and the lock knobs. I think I'd have everything but the handles anodized black...but maybe not.

    Anyway, I can send you the infotainment knobs and buttons--the back of the little buttons is "more" complex, in that it takes twenty minutes with a micrometer and some thinking, but if you're doing this on a computer-controlled machine the toughest part seemed to be getting the font of the letters for the buttons, and the fulcrum point on the buttons. Oh, and the little insert for the big button--I didn't like the idea of using a set screw to hold it on the shaft--I wanted it to slide on and off like the OEM big round button.

    Oh, I'm talking about a Gen. 1 CTS-V. They're not all the same between models?

    I purchased these from Brandon and it was worth every penny!
