starting to paint

I think that I am gonna start painting the interior of my ranger. I am going to go green on black. I have had some trouble finding a green interior paint. Will the Krylon Fusion green paint work? and does any one have a good scheme for painting the entire interior of their ranger?

Krylon Fusion is what u need, rough it up alil with some sand paper say 600 or so higher grit, then prime it, LET IT DRY FULLY, then paint with a few coats and shoot some clear to it, take your time and do it right, dont run it and dont rush it, i did my old neons interior one night...took me 9 hours and a heat gun to dry the paint quicker, as far as scheme what color is your truck and whats the look your are going for?

it is dark green I went and looked at the krylon green today it lookes perfect. Im not sure if I should paint the glove box green and the bezzel green, and the different parts like the ash tray. Or if I should paint those parts black and everything else green.

If you sanded - wouldn't the scuffs be seen after you painted?

and if you use a primer, which they make a plastic primer, it will fill in those scuffs, scratches, and give it a nice smooth finish.

some of the custom boys around here will sand their interiors down, then bondo it, sand it more, prim, paint, and clear it. most of them turn out really well. They've done whole dashes like this, always looks good.

I did green and it looks great. I used dupli color automotive factory match paint to match my exterior with some dupli color adhesion promoter for a primer. After I scuffed it with some 600 of course.
