Question Vinyl paint to BRUSH?

I'm looking for some vinyl paint to do a little trimming on my dash, but some of the detailing requires me hand painting. The only vinyl paint I found is in a spray can, which would be too risky to use, ESPECIALLY on the "Intrepid" imprint on the passenger airbag. Anyone know if enamel paint (for plastic model kits) would work? OR if you know a place I can get paint brush vinyl paint?

Thanks!

Prep work ...is more important than the paint.

I would clean out around the letters good(toothbrush.. preferably old).. then wipe good n clean with isopropyl alcohol.. I too was going to suggest the spray excess in a small cup and maybe use a couple drops of paint thinner to keep it from setting too quick..(if you're having that issue) .... I dont think you'd need to sand that area if you clean it really good and use an adhesion promoter (bulldog name brand is good)... but if you can get in there..scuff it up with a scotch bright pad..and alcohol cleaning.. scuffing always helps..
If someone hits the DODGE emblem in your dash with their knee or something..it can and probably will crack being that it's on vinyl.


my temporary sig page..till I get time to make one! HERE
