Question Interior Painting on 09 model?

Hey guys i was wanting to redo the whole inside of my car. Unfortunatley the whole inside of my car is Tan, Including the seats and carpet. I have already done some small paint jobs on the door speakers and rear passenger speakers (painted them a very nice gray) I would like some tips or advice to help me get well on my way to covering up that stock Tan. Pictures would be great, paint brands anything. I was thinking a dark gray or gloss black on all the plastic that i didnt want to color match.

Thanks, its awesome you can get it anywhere like home depot, the best thing is that when your done if you don't like it you can peel it off once it dries, but to peel it off you have to have a few coats, the thicker it is the easyier it peeled off once you get a corner going

Plastidip sounds pretty good, saves you from having to sand it again. But what i really want to paint in the interior frame of the whole car from the tan to black. Im pretty nervous about this i got that "im gonna my car up" feeling. The rest is cake. I just have to find a good fabric paint for the carpet/s in the car.

How well does the Plastidip hold up to scratches, things hitting off it, etc? I'm not going a whole car interior refinish but wouldn't mind doing just the chrome door handles. I just know that paint tends to flake off over time.

If you use like 4 or 5 good coats, but I'm not sure cause the handles are a high usage area, I know people use it to do thier grilled and have no trouble with it, I just did my rims a couple weeks ago and Havnt had any trouble

How much does this "plastidip" cost and where did you find it? Any pros vs cons?
