Interior Paint

I thought I would begin to give my interior some color. This is my first attempt at painting plastic. I think it turned out pretty good.

The color was supposed to be a dark maroon. I used a light primer.

I don't like paint on the interior either, but it does actually look pretty good.

finish looks nice, but i'm definitely not a fan of the color.

your truck is black? what color are your seat inserts? gray/silver?

you could go with black (i used house of kolors kandy black pearl on my interior pieces... HOT) or silver? anything that can somehow tie into your truck would be better.

Sorry for not replying sooner. I have been in Atlanta on vacation. Anyway, 3 coats of a a special blend of clear coat one of my buddies makes is the reason for the shine. When you put a coat of clear on it actually is almost white and as it dries for about 10 minutes you can see the paint again.
