I painted the bezel around the radio/air vents on my 2002. I went directly to the dealer. Put on 4 coats of Steel Blue and 2 coats of Clear Coat, cost me about $15.00 for 6 cans total. I have 1 can of clear coat I never used. When finished it looked like a factory job, I received many compliments on it.

2008 Silver Steel Metallic, Touring, NA, Sirius; Chromed door handles; lower grille; fog light surrounds; chrome front & rear bumpers strips; Airaid air filter; Bassani duals; Modesty Cover; Autolite AP5263 Platinum Plugs (.040); Crane Plug Wires; NAPA Ceramic pads; Blane hood struts; PTeazer Gas, Brake & Foot Rest Pedals, '05 Rear Step Pad, Stainless Door Sills, Llumar tint, "A" Piller chrome; APC Strut Bar

Have seen people paint the black plastic things between the doors. They have gone to an auto paint store and had them mix up a spray can of the color they want. Need to get the color paint number off the car for the store to use.
