Black interior panels?

1) Did they ever make a ranger with black interior panels? (dash board, doors, back wall etc)

2) What kind of paint would be good to paint over that hard vinyl? My interior is currently brown and i HATE it, and i just took out my pillars and painted them with just "Krylon plastic fusion" paint, it says that its meant for hard vinyl surfaces and doesn't need a primer. Im going to wait a week or so to see how it turns out and how durable it is, but if i dont like it, i want a back up paint i can use that will be durable on hard vinyl.

Zabeard painted his interior all black I believe.

SEM is the only paint I would use, I don't really trust Duplicolor too much.

Also, if im going to use a paint that specifically says "Can be used on Hard vinyl" do i need to spray down an adhesion promotoer? and does anyone know if they make a flat or satin clear coat? I just want something to protect the paint after im done, but i dont want it to be glossy.
