Spray Painting The Plastics?

Do you think it would be worth it to spray paint all of the plastics, like the dash, pillars, etc. I want the Dark Charcoal color but i have the tan scheme. I would like to keep the texture, so that means i cant sand paper it. 3 layers of charcoal spray paint, then like what 2 layers of clear coat?

Just an idea.

Do you have any pictures that i can see? Any did ALL of the plastic parts come out without breaking? I have a Cliftons Manual, i will follow that.

I am going for a Black and Charcoal color scheme inside and i want to paint my car a liquid Dark Grey, with Dark Blue graphics on the outside.

Slowly But Surely.

Thanks for the Help.

if u want the black interior just stop by a junkyard and look for a focus with dark interior. I've seen a guy on here who did that, he originally had the tan interior
