Painting question

I have already painted my Radio bezel, and it came out great after a little work.
Ive picked up some extra pieces at the JY to paint in case i F*** up.

Now my question is, how do you paint the glove box door, the removable dash piece under the steering wheel, the little dash vents, and the fuse panel cover?

I ask this because they are not like the radio bezel or the door handles. They feel almost like a rubber.

Ive seen them painted, but just not 100% sure if its the same process as the other items, or if its different with them being that rubber texture?

Thanks

I thought the piece under the steering wheel as metal, well mine is, the rubber/plastic/vinyl pieces I would get that special paint for them but prep them right my old exploder I couldn't find a red console so I had gotten an eddie bauer console with eddie bauer leather armrest and I used that vinyl spray paint and I can't find my can to tell ya but the brand I used they said that after 5days that the paint shouldn't scrape off or anything. I liked it I think the brand I used started with a K. Good luck.

clean 'em, spray or wipe down with adhesion promoter, and go at it with color. That's what i'd do.

TeamExploder: i believe he's talking about the area where your knee hits inder the dash....where the obd2 port is and the hood release is. It's a plastic pieve ontop of a metal piece.

Mine is metal, your trucks are newer so they maybe plastic coated or pure plastic.

understandable. possibly it's 98+ where the metal plate mounts, then the plastic panel mounts to it. honestly no clue on older than 98. lol.
