I dunno about painting just certain parts of interior and leaving the rest stock black or gray. I don't think I would paint mine unless I did the whole thing, or my dash were a lighter color or something.

But I do like that color

I like it man. Looks nice and clean. Gives the ride a nice custom look. I don't like it when peep go over board and paint everything. Then things look too tacky.

id say a slightly lighter shade of blue for the rest of the dash would look good. so basically lightish blue with darker blue trim and accents

what do you mean, sticking?? I took the vents out of the car, put them on the sidewalk, spray painted primer, and then the Aqua metallic color...

The vents are adjustable and I was wondering if when you painted the vents if the "adjustability" was hampered in any way since paint will inevitably enter parts of the vent mechanism.

Does anyone have any good tips for painting interior pieces (such as vents, etc.) or possibly some websites with step-by-step pictures. I've talked to SilentAlero a little bit about this but I'd like to get some more information before I try it on my car.

make sure you sand it down and prime it........the way i did it was sand(320 grit),prime,sand(320 grit),prime,sand(320 grit),paint,sand(2000 grit),paint,sand(2000 grit),paint,sand(2000 grit)..then 3-4 coats of clear coat.....i dont know if you are on the SG board or not but if not here is how my interior turned out after do what i said




if you do not sand and prime it will most likly start to peel off

to do mine.. i took the vent .. and totally dissasembled it..
i then sanded it down with 600 grit.. and then i washed it.. after this .. i primed it.. then i sanded again.. and washed it .. dried it.. then painted them white..since they were adjustable and i didnt want them to stick.. i took the adjustable things out.. you know... the little things that direct the air.. painted those seperately and then let dry somewhat. .and clear coated it.. then a lil wet sand.. a the reassembled them.. and viola!!.. painted vents
