That's a great idea!I read a lot of reviews and that center piece got a lot of attention because it's glossy and can be scratched easily. I mean you could remove it and install a new one but how long will it be until you scratch that one? Know what I mean? I'm thinking of getting some plastic film to put over it like an ipod screen plastic cover.
I have a 6" wide roll of 3M film for doing rocker panels and the like. I think I will investigate this myself.
