Custom Start Button

Couldn't find a yellow start button ring so I spray painted mine. Came out pretty well

Taking apart the start button is really easy. Use trim removal tool to pop up the trim. Whole thing doesnt need to come off. Just enough to get the button out. Once you do that, unclip the silver ring and pull out the inner ring. It's pretty straight forward. Here's a video tutorial.



FIRST ATTEMPT
  • Pretty sloppy and left the outer ring silver



SECOND ATTEMPT
  • Resprayed and painted the out ring black!

It really did! Happy I went through with it. Wish there were more available yellow parts

I was thinking of doing the same with a yellow button!

Nicely done!

I may consider doing this for now until someone comes out with the yellow start/stop button and M button.

Thanks for sharing OP
