Painting interior? should I?

I got a pint of paint, and should have plenty left over after I paint my bumper and grill, so im wondering if I should paint those black plastic panels that are attached to the inside door handles. (with mandarin gold metalic)
Heres a pic of the interior currently.........

that would look cool, maybe even the plastic on the seat belt near the console.

ONLY if you do it correctly, so it doesn't peel or chip.

I don't know my paint, but it would need to be prepped, layered, then sealed so the temperature changes and sun won't damage it. I've seen some nice interiors go REALLY bad with a poor paint job.

Do the door handle thingy's and the cup holder don't go farther than that I think if you are going to then you should just paint the whole interior that color.

I would say paint the rest of the black with that metallic orange. I personally think it will look good.

I say yes, but just those door pieces, otherwise it will be to much.

Looked at the finished panels on your Car-Domain page MudSlinger. Looks really good. Not what I would have done though.
I like picking a color that matches or blends in with the inside of the truck. Rather than one that matches the outside.
But hay, that's what customizing is all about, right? Making something that you like and no one else has.
