Suggestions on Interior

I'm wanting to paint a couple more pieces blue, like the ring around the shifter, the drivers side compartment, and the glove box piece.

The steering wheel pieces are done, I just haven't taken a picture of them.

If I wanted to do the rest black in such a way that it matched the stock black; What type of paint will I use?

Used Krylon Fusion for plastics (Navy Blue Gloss) for the trim.

I redid my pillars and roof trim pieces with Krylon plastic satin black and it looks really good, I think I have a pick in my garage if you want to see the color.

Just dont do anything with a glossy finish or it will look terrible (for the black). Flat looks bad too IMO.
I got a can from walmart that was labelled as flat black, just a cheapo $3 can, and it was more of a semi-gloss. But the finish looks just like the stock black after getting an armourall wipe down

I agree with the krylon fusion satin black. I have used it in my car and its a near perfect match to the stock black dash color.

Here is a picture of my interior that shows the top part of the door painted black with the krylon paint next to the stock dash

Are you not planning on doing your head liner and pillars biniecki? The black, tan and silver combo drove me nuts!

I do plan to do the pillars and headliner eventually. The rest of the interior I have painted to charcoal gray and black instead of the stock colors.
