    Yikes! Good luck! You don't want to buy one from a dealer! Over $600, as it comes as all one unit, including switches, knobs, etc.

    Hope you find something!

    One option you have is to use goof-off (available at Menards) which will take off the black and probably some of the factory grey coating. Then repaint with black Krylon Fusion (also available at Menards). Several light coats of that should look good.

    Probably so. But it will also probably remove most of the texture.

    i found a black one on ebay about a year ago. paid $50 bucks for it and everything works perfect to this day. it took a long time to finally find one though. i got very impatient, but waited long enough and found an awesome deal.
