Interior painting question

Im going to paint parts of the interior, u know the usual stuff like the vents, the gauge cluster, etc. but i was wondering will the heat, or changes in temperature coming out from the vents cause the paint to crack or mess up at all, and im also thining about painting the whole vent not just the ring, so should i sand the vent or just paint over it, b/c it looks kinda hard to get into those spots on the flaps, and i dont wanna mess up the gripping on the dials. thanks

Sand as much as possible for you to get to, or else the paint won't stick to the surfaces.

And I've had my vent rings painted for over a year now and they look exactly the same as when I first painted them, and they had heat blowing through them plenty during that time.
