depends what style of plastics
hard plastics you can use pretty much any paint.
for stuff that has more flex or can obsorb stuff (vinyl dash for instance) then the VHT vinyl dye is the best.

the VHT paint can be used on hard plastics too, but its an expensive way to go about it :)

I reckon VHT from Autobarn is still the best paint for the EF/EL plastic methinks.

I bought my spray from repco. just took in my head seat and matched the paint. Then sprayed it. If you do it right, it wont smell. You gotta do about 3 to 4 coats to really get a good look. Leave it over nite on last coat and then put it in. Had no smell at all. Just when sprayin, dont spray thick coats. It wont stick too well.
