I'm trying to paint the gray plastic pieces in my car to match the charcoal pieces so the yellow and black theme will look better. Compare the center console and shift cover in this picture, and imagine them both charcoal like the shift cover.

So I paid the big bucks and got a can of the Fiero Store's charcoal interior paint. I am very disappointed in it. First of all, the color is not exact. It has a very slight blue tint to it -- not pure charcoal. Second, it takes FOREVER to dry. Pieces I painted Saturday are still a little sticky. Baking them in the sun seems to help.
I bought a can of Duplicolor vinyl and fabric charcoal paint, and am going to try that. I will update this when I know the result. It's certainly a lot cheaper.

I did my dash with the duplicolor flat black and it looks awsome and wears well no problems. It really stinks when you spray it (need to be in a well ventilated area) but it looks like new!!! Drys fast....

I tried using flat spraypaint one time, and it was just like you said sticky. Some parts were always sticky weeks later. When I decided I had enough, I took it all back out and re-sprayed everything with Dupli-color Vinyl and Fabric, and it worked great. Looks perfect and you can get it at most auto stores.

I did my whole interior with the rustoleum brand interior vinyl and fabric dye. It's turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL, dries very quickly, and so far it wears very well. So if the duplicolor doesn't work out for you I highly recommend it.

I agree. I painted a shift knob over a year ago...it's almost dry enough to be used...almost.

The mainthing to keep in mind when painting such items is you have get them clean; no armorall wax, body oil or whatever on them else!!!
BTW great looking car

I did my interior black years ago, I used duplicolor on some pieces and then I used some specialized vinyl paint that was pretty expensive on the others. It held up pretty well, but now 6 or 7 years later it's worn through in some spots and needs a touch up. Mostly the door panels and the shift console are what need touching up.

Use pep boys panel prep cleaner wipes and then hit it with a tack cloth. Buy their interior grey paint, it's close. Don't expect new paint to match old paint but pep boys is close match.

I was going to repaint my interior but i used a white paste cleaner (gumption or gif) and it all came up like new so i decided that it wasnt required you may be suprised what comes off with a polish.

I just visited last weekend a forum member who said he used the duplicolor I believe and then he said he took a heat gun at about a foot away and it turned out perfect. He said the heat gun like bakes it in and dries it immediatley and then you can scratch the surface even and it doesnt show it. Dont know his forum name but he is in Indiana.
