painting doors with dark grey interior? Pic Request

my new truck has the dark grey interior but i still wanted to paint the door handles and the radio bezel (sp?) Im not sure how that will look.
My truck is red, so i wanted to paint them red. Has anyone done this who can show me a pic of what it will look like?

I will post a pic of my interior tomorrow in the daylight so if there are any photoshopers who can help me out.

fusion holds up great, and really bonds to the plastic, but as far as looks are concerned, it isnt anything special imo. you can get a finish that looks much much better by applying a base of some sort, then a quality color, then a clearcoat on top.

ya, i was thinking about matching the red, but my brother (an artist) said i should pick another color and go with that on the inside.
Maybe ill go with silver. I really like the looks of that.
