    Default Painted Trim

    Right now iv got most the dash and door trim wrapped in carbon fibre stuff but i fancy a change i had a little orange vinyl kicking around so iv done a little on my steering wheel i like the idea of a bright colour but dont like wrapping stuff that much.

    so does anyone have any pictures of the dash and steering wheel trim or door handles in any other colours apart from a carbon fibre?

    Also i plan to paint it next time not wrap so what kind of prep should i do or can i just spray it on and give it a few coats of lacquer?

    You can't really just spray plastic, you need to rub it down and prep the area properly like any other material,(probably loads of coats of polish?)
    you should then use specific Plastic Primer then paint, though there are paints on the market designed for interior use, you will still need to thoroughly clean the area first with some strong degreasers, maybe Acetone (nail polish remover is a mild for of it)
