    Hello friends, it's been a while since I wrote anything in the forum. Thought I'd resume back with a recent DIY work. Painted the steering wheel control button panel as in Punto Evo. Used com-paint spray and the color is Maruti suzuki's silky silver.

    Thanks. I wanted some color which matches the music player front fascia. I'm not sure if Linea's music player console is different from Punto's.

    I actually removed the steering controls plastic away from the steering using a soft tool. Once that is removed, the buttons (with inscriptions) can be removed separately for painting the outer plastic. The center vertical line is part of the outer plastic.

    Nice DIY buddy and Thanks for update!

    It would be nice, if you could post step by step approach to achieve this result. Pictorial presentation is appreciated.
    It would help most of the members out here to understand the process and if required, they can undertake this project too. :)

    Thanks. Yeah.. I tried doing something like the AC vents of a Vento (with a thin line), but ended up this way :) I'll try to upload the complete dashboard pic by EOD.

    Thanks. I'll do that in a few days.

    This is how Abarth/Evo steering wheel look like. Try paint the bottom part of steering as well.
