krylon fusion is probably the best for plastic, since it's obviously made for it. for the vents you can take a negative screwdriver (LOL) and pop out the bottom of them and pull them out. alot of the pieces are pretty simple to remove but don't get too crazy with painting things, or it could look cheap. not saying your ride (stephen) looks bad.

The really big radio bezel piece? That was a pain. There is a few screws where the radio goes, and you have to disconnect the cig lighter and other stuff. The instrument panel I believe had some screws and push tabs...After Ive removed all screws and anything that looks like it would hold the piece in, I just pull. lol Havent broken anything yet! I used Fusion spray paint. It bonds to plastic. Its been a year and still no chips!

Yeah the eyelids werent the best. They look spray painted. lol They took forever to come off and the right headlight still had a bit of spray paint and spray tint on it.

I was wondering if anyone would notice! I didnt even realize the sub wiring fell out, until I saw that pic. lol Ill go put it back in now. But thanks for the heads up!

My ride looks bad. hahah jk. Yeah if you paint too much stuff, it can look bad. Unless its a normal color, like black. lol Thats why Im going to redo some things. It was just starting to look ricey. Plus I noticed alot of silver is starting to appear on my car more than red.
