I don't have any pic but for my plastic pieces , I had them Hydro Dipped & clear coated... I have tried the painting route & just didn't like it compared to dipping them. You can get basic colors to a carbon fiber look or anything in between. It's not to terribly expensive & looks way better than paint !!!

SEM makes a good vinyl paint. Use SEMI-flat - not flat or gloss. On the soft vinyl parts ( dash, door panels, console, etc.) just clean them well & spray. On the hard plastic parts, you need to use a special plastic primer:

What Tha Driver said. I had the same scenario with my interior ... three different shades of gray (not 50). I cleaned the parts with Bleach White and scrub brush to remove all dirt/oils and then thoroughly dried. You can also purchase a prep cleaner made for these paints. Before spraying use the primer that is made for SEM interior paints. I bought my paint at an English Color store. You probably won't find it in most generic parts stores. It's more expensive ($15/can) but well worth it. I did quite a few parts and used only three cans. My parts came out looking like new and nothing has peeled. Just use the instruction on the can and you can't go wrong. FYI, SEM offers a large spectrum of colors so take something along that you want to match.

Definately use the SEM and nothing else. Pay the extra money and have the results turn out perfectly. SEM is a professional choice. Here is where I get mine:

I've had good luck with Duplicolor fabric and vinyl paint. It's been in my car for a couple of years, and hasn't come off anything except the driver's side arm rest, where my bony elbow presses into it. It hasn't come off the center console, but my other elbow doesn't flex that much.

VHT, vinyl dye, once applied, even laquer thinner has a very hard time removing it ! whatever you use, it must be Perfectly CLEAN before application.
