Painting plastic pieces on the interior of a car

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Painting plastic pieces on the interior of a car

I own a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Coupe and I hate the woodgrain sticker on the console with a passion and i noticed how the plastic frame around the cd player and ac/heater dials is plastic and I want to take that off as well as the woodgrain stick area and the ovals over the door handles and I want to paint them soldi black and add a really nice shiny black gloss to them so they look real real nice and I want to know whats the best way to go about doing this and whats a real good paint to do this with. Most of my friends that have done this with other colors, the parts end up being real dull cause they are using spraypaint from wally world but I want to know a good paint to use like some type of plastic krylon type paint I can buy. Any sugestions would be nice. Thanks.

I've never painted interiors before but i have done tons of platic/vinyl painting. You can just buy any gloss paint and apply a clearcoat to get even more gloss. For high shine i have always prefered enamel.

I would recomend a clearcoat even if you dont need more gloss. doesn't scratch or peel as easy, not that the black should in the first place.

I bought some krylon fusion plastic paint (black gloss) today and i'm gonna take the faceplate off around the cd player and stuff and paint it and if it looks nice i'll do the other pieces in the car. If it isn't glossy enough i'll buy a gloss and see if that looks even better.
