I am currently getting a full retrim on my EL and i am going to paint some bits and pieces like door cards, centre console etc etc while the seats are getting done. What is the best brands of interior paints and how do i go about prepping before spraying??
Cheers

i used metallic grey body paint on my shift suround stereo facia and cluster surround and clear coated it.
i used metho to cleen the surface gave it a light sand all over and used normal undercoat first then 2 coats of paint +clear coat
as long as the plastic is extreemly clean it will work good.
its been 2 years and the paint is still good
