    Had some requests to do a DIY for this, so here it is.
    Tools needed:
    Dremel with grinding wheel
    Torx 15 bit/driver
    Philips screw driver
    Plastic epoxy
    Pry tool
    I started by removing the door panels, I used this video from youtube:

    next remove T15 screws that hold the armrest to the door panel. I don't have a pic, but you can't miss them.

    I used 3 coats of SEM trim black, let the paint cure for 24 hours. Assembly is reverse of tear down.

    I wonder how many times it'll hold paint. Color match to the exterior. Then if it's too tacky I can't color it black
