Dont know I have manual everything, but that is acommon problem with any painted part that comes into contact with human body parts. The grease and oil from the hands really does a number on paints.

the good news is, that is what inspired me to paint my interior. Believe it or not, applying a little paint remover does wonders! And the factory pieces are black and match the door perfectly. See images below:





The product on the far right, Motsenbocker's Lift Off Paint Remover does wonders! Just brush it on, wait 2-3 minutes, then wipe off the old paint. Its that easy!

sure would have been nice if they would have been. Your dash pieces will look like mine below once you strip the silver paint off.

Goof Off will not melt the plastic? I painted mine and need to remove it and start over, but wasn't sure if Goof Off would melt the plastic.
