F430 Dreaded Sticky Issue

bought a 2006 F430 last year and the window switches, radio knobs, climate control, console panel and ash tray all showed signs of being tacky and sticky.
I came across StickyRX website and was impressed with his methods of refinishing sticky parts and laser etching the graphics.
I contacted Dave and he was very helpful in giving me some tips on how to disassemble and ship off the parts.
Dave actually designed a new CAD file for the 430 climate panel to laser etch the graphics and I thought that was very impressive that he has the in house capability to do that. All the graphics are exactly as originals were and thatís very important to me since I am anal about originality
The parts arrived back to me yesterday and they are outstanding! The paint material seems like its hard as nails.
I didnít realize how bad the original parts looked until I got the newly refinished parts back.
All in all I am very happy and impressed with Sticky RX workmanship and process
Thanks Dave

Dave has the reputation of performing magic. I"m curious on why the parts in your car looked so bad. I have a 2006 and don't have the sticky issue. Why would the sticky issue appear?

2006 Ferrari F430 Coupť,

Hi Dominic,
as we tell in Italy, you chose the good horse, Dave of Sticky RX is doing great restorations, his refurbishment is better than the OE.

Best Regards

The parts may have already been refinished or they may just not have gone bad yet. If that's the case, they will in time (sorry to be the guy delivering bad news)
