Painting dash

I saw this pic on google and i love the idea. now how can i go about doing this to the silver parts of the dash and the ring around the shift knob? is it doable by myself or is this more like a professional job? thanks

DIY all they way, all you need to do is pull of the parts that you want to paint, get really really fine sand paper and sratch it alittle bit and them spray it.

well iam almost done with it. its alittle bit harder then i thought. your going to have to get some goof off to get anything oily off of it or the paint wont stick. so i put that on and then sanded it, painted it, and put a clear coat on it. will post pics when all done
