People have been painting plastic interior parts for years. Regular spray paint does not seem to apply well or hold up. I've used Eastwood products in the past with good results. Good surface prep and application will make it last!

SEM puts out some good plastic paints. Try your local paint/auto store.

My choice would be SEM products. I've been using their stuff a very long time with great results.

Absolutely SEM. Look online. There are lots of dealers. They will send you a color chart to order from or choose from the online color chart.
