You've needed them for years... now, a solution to the problem!!!

*****Update***** For the 'Walk-through' or 'How-To' click here


  Cover up those hideous looking "flaky" stereo control buttons and make your steering wheel look like-new again. This is a self adhesive overlay kit is for the years 1985-1987. Basically, strip away the existing (flaky) button face, clean and then line-up and apply this brushed-silver overlay to refresh the look of your steering wheel.

What you'll receive with this kit:

4 - brushed silver, self adhesive button decals
  • VOL -
  • VOL +
  • SEEK
  • SCAN (M.CALL for '87 model year)
1 - surrounding overlay for the 2 end switches P/SW and FM/AM (MUTE for '87 model year)






All masked with clear application film and pre-spaced ...ready to apply!

* As an added bonus I will throw in a small piece of "metallic silver" vinyl that can be applied and trimmed to the bottom edge of the controls to freshen-up that area as well (This will need trimmed slightly after application for proper fit)

Pricing for this item is $25.00 shipped anywhere in the U.S

My Paypal address is: natallica@comcast.net

*Please indicate the model year of your Quest/Starion in the Paypal notes to ensure getting the correct kit and also please submit your shipping address, sometimes they don't show up through Paypal.

Disclaimer :D
I assume NO responsibility in ANY damage done to your stereo controls if you choose to purchase one of these kits for your Starquest, I am only offering these as an inexpensive cosmetic replacement to old worn out buttons. Apart from finding a brand new unit (which is impossible) this is the only option that I can think of, so if you believe you are mechanically inclined enough to dismantle and scrape and clean the surfaces...then by all means grab one of these kits. It's relatively easy to do if you take your time and be thorough in the prep, you should be happy with the results.

  *There will be no kits replaced due to misaligned applications or failure to adhere from improperly prepped surfaces. These are pretty much a "one-shot" deal, be 100% of the decals placement before rub-down. You may choose to paint the 2 smaller buttons at both ends with Testors or similar silver paint ..it's a matter of preference, but I simply didn't have the means to include an overlay for those seeing as the vinyl wouldn't stick to the grooved surfaces.

Thanks Guys, lemme know what you think!

That is weird...but I tried to get a definitive answer to that question so I didn't look like a douche when I offered these up. :)

So was '87 the first year for the "Mute" and "M.Call" buttons (in this style), assuming then all previous controls had "P/SW" and "SCAN"?

So hopefully if/when they're ordered you guys will let me know 'for sure' which one you need for your ride.

You are correct on the label of the controls for the 87 widebody model not sure about the Flatty model 87 though. And as I have mentioned in the previous post when the audio controls were being made I knew there was some differences in the previous year models as well. So I think you are ok on this part. But it is up to the customer to confirm which one they will need.
Keep up the good work. Many thanks.

Then yes you have a 87 model if produced in late 86. Some car manufacture release their new model cars around july or the previous year.
