How to paint trims ??

Hi guys ! I might look a little bit stupid, but how can I paint all the trims inside my Trep.

Like SkyHawk did:



Do I have to use some special paint for that ? BTW, I want to paint them the same color as my car.

Thx !

As far as painting plastic goes just a light sanding with a scotch brite pad to lightly scuff up the entire surface and after its scuffed make sure the areas to be painted are as clean as you can get them.
next apply Dupli-Color adhesion promoter to the entire surface at least two coats.
now your ready for the paint color of your choice i don't like to use any more than two coats on plastic it builds up fast and runs easily.
i would recommend clear coat as well it ads more durability but some people don't like the shine.

Depending on what color you want to make it, that Krylon Fusion paint works very well. (please no light colors) lol

I would recommend a clearcoat and look at Doug (Dudley's) colorsanding how-to. It will look amazing if you do it that way.

Use duplicolor paint for your car and then clear them. Nice and shiny.

yeah dupli-color is good, I actually use engine enamel for everything I can now cause it doesn't chip as easy but it only comes in a couple colors

maybe not exact but very very close, It's made to match factory paint colors but it's usually just a little off, you probably wouldn't notice unless you were trying to match something with that color already on it.

I don't think I will see it, It will be in the interior of the car. I just want to see it's almost the same color as my body paint.

I did mine in black and used this laquer type stuff that they use on older cars.
Laquer smells so much different than Spray paint, in a good way Lo-to the L
