I've painted alot of interior pieces in the past. I've always gone to an automotive paint store though and bought their stuff that's specifically designed for automotive plastics. The key is getting the original surface, piece clean and prepped.

Sorry for it being off topic but my old thread is closed and it dont go into much detail. It came from fabrics and you get it by however much you need. I had alot since I had to wrap myself in it for a toga. I scuffed the plastic and cleaned it for prep. I cut the fabric to cover the surface and have alot of overhang. I used 3m spray adhesive medium strength and sprayed the plastic and laid the cloth. Then I trimmed away enough fabric so it could wrap around to the back, sprayed the back and tucked it. Edges and curves were the trickiest! I don't know exactly how to explain it, just something you would have to see but the fabric will bunch up instead of laying smooth so I went with it and then cut the bunched up part off and it looked flush. For the switches I took a razer and cut down the middle folded it back glued. so i Sorry for a long past but if anymore questions PM me. Thanks
