    Paint Button or not

    So, I dremel'd out the inside of my shift handle to mount my nitrous activation button (down current from the Arm Switch). Now the question is, do I paint the button black or leave it the way it is. Opinions?

    Red looks good. How about a better shot of your console and switch installation? And explain what it all does!

    11 buttons total...don't laugh, they all have a purpose.

    Dash under HVAC:
    Tail Light Toggle (Anti PoPo)
    Brake Light Toggle (Anti PoPo)
    Ram Air Lights
    Manual Fan Activation
    Line Lock
    Fuel Pump Toggle (Kill Switch)

    Ash Tray:
    Nitrous Arm
    Bottle Heater
    Purge
    Bottle Opener

    Shifter:
    Nitrous Activation (wanted to double up on the activation buttons, so no accidentally activation happens)

    btw...both of the "Anti PoPo" Buttons have been used and were quite effective in both instances

    Yes...works very well, cause the guages/headlights are still on and the brakes work, but the tail lights (license plate light too) and brake lights don't come on.

    Them: "what's that"
