remember to clean the hell out of what ever you are painting. I was lazy with that part that holds the radio and the paint didn't stick. So wash them really well.

Painting

First, do a search. There have been tons of how tos and posts about this.

Next, just clean it, scuff or sand the parts, prime or apply adhesive promoter and paint. Follow the directions on the can and you will do fine.

A few keys. Watch out for the weather. Paints will work best within the weather parameters set out by the manufacturer. Too much humidity or too cold a tempo will kill you. Make sure the first coat is thin. A dusting. If you have patience and can do that throughout, your paint will last longer.

You can check my site for pics of my interior. Good luck.
