take the radio bezel off and start peeling. if you don't get it all off, then it will not look right. you can use rubbing alcohol to help get it off...

I noticed this in my exploder there is a shiny spot where it looks like it chipped off. Sounds fun, I'm just afraid I won't get the paint in the creases right and screw it up.

its no big deal....your just rattle canning. there's no where that you can't get paint...meaning i highly doubt anyone who competent in rattle cans, can do this no problem. i aint hatin' ya. thin coats....nothing heavy.

Mine hasn't been too bad, and it's not too noticable to me. Eventually I may end up painting it, but for now it works for me. Mine's peeled in a 1 inch by 1/4 inch section so it's not too bad.

Only things I've spray painted was center console and arm rest in my last exploder and a tonka truck. I'll have to see if I can find a paint close to the color of the truck.

my dads 99 explorer has chipped for some time now so every once in a while he chipps more off. i like the under color in his exploder better. shiny black instead of flat black
