Yes some places take the piss on pricing just because they can.
Tyler Hoover from Hoovies Garage on YouTube is having his Diablo centre console de-stickied at the moment. He said it's costing him $2.5k, and that he didn't have any choice because it's the only place he could find to do it so they could basically charge whatever they wanted.

Wonder how much the laser engraving costs?
I have a laser engraving business we do a lot of switches for private jets , back lit buttons the same as these , simple to do , just laser the black away and leave the white undercoat .

What causes this to happen?

Also +1 on £350 sounding like a reasonable price given the amount of labour (and care) involved. The end result in the OP looks really good!

Thanks v much !

Ferrari coat a lot of their switches with a rubber coating which when new has a really nice texture to the touch. Nice aesthetic also.... but over time, especially in hotter climates, the coating kind of melts and just gets sticky.

Its taken almost 15yrs for my cars bits to get to the point of really needing a refurb and the treatment Roland gave them provides the OE texture but actually uses a harder wearing coating so should last for longer.

Very impressive, did you take them apart yourself? Not sure I'm that brave to be honest.

No, AV engineering took it all apart and sent it off.

Nice, hoping to get mine done in the not too distant future. I just need to solve an annoying rattle first...

I used Dunlop 65 guitar lemon oil on my 360 plastics. Only £6 and worked a treat.

I did that last week and the moderators removed it!
Roland replied to this thread previously, have a look and click on his profile. Otherwise PM me.

Ah - OK. I was googling "roland sticky plastics" and similar and got a load of irrelevant hits.

Ta. Mine's going down to AV this weekend and that's one of the things on the list, hopefully won't have to wait too long.
