Default interior paint

I wanted to paint the stereo bezel to math the body color.I picked up the mopar paint at the dealer. Has anyone done this? I read about a bonding agent somewhere but can not remember where. How about primer and or clear coat? Any pictures or experience is greatly appreciated.

I painted mine. Seems there was a rubbery finish on the console that bubbled up when the adhesive promoter hit it. Had to sand all that off. Removed the center vents, sprayed with adhesive promoter, primer (white primer if you are using inferno red paint), 4 coats of paint and 6 coats of clear.

More detail please, what grit did you sand with? where did you get the promoter. BTW your bezel picture looks incredible. Exactly the look I want-Except purple. What else have you painted inside?[?]

What does it do?Apart from promote adhesionI havent heard of that before.
I thought it would be a simple job of rub down then paint

Well, lets see, I've painted the overhead console, the glove box handle, the rubber trim around the sunroof, the little covers over the seat belt bolts on the B-pillar, the floor console and several little parts that I can't seem to remember right now. The adhesive promoter is suppose to help give the primer something to hold on too. I just used a very fine sand paper on the center console to remove that dang rubbery finish then used the same grit to lightly sand the entire console.

The Adhesion Promoter I am using (and I think, purple people
eater) is using is made by Dupli-Color. The PN# is CP199 Ad-Pro.
It is used as a base before primer to paint plastic surfaces.
Can't remember how much it was,price wise off hand, though.
Sorry H.

Hey RedHot,
Did you paint those A/C knobs too? Or buy those somewhere?
Thanks,
Doug
