Dealer can shut the light off, it will only come on if you turn the key on with the bag disconnected.

If you take you dash off and paint all of it white I will come over and personally kick your ass! :p

If you paint it white, it will annoy the **** out of you! When you look out the window all you will see is it's reflection. I have done white dash parts in my ex's civic and it was annoying, I could only imagine how the whole dash would distract you.

What and how would you paint it?? Spray paint? Would it require some sort of primer??

first it would have to be completly taken out and the texture sanded off... then primer paint and clear... and i would have it professionaly painted. but i would do alll the sanding and prep work... no need to waste money to have them do it when ican just as easily

Trust me, you DO NOT want to get rid of the texture. If you get rid of the texture AND paint it gloss black you will see EVERY single finger print and it will drive you insane!

there are cf/fg door panels , and there was a cf/fg dash in the works none were anywhere near remotely cheap and to the best of my understanding the das's never got made/aren't done yet.

Krylon fusion...theres a guy on my mazda site that took his dash out and it looks like he took it to a paint shop.
Not a real good pic, but you can see how good it looks.
