Interior Trim Paint

i know theres probably a hundred threads on this so sorry

but i wanna wrap my trim in carbon fiber but havent ordered it so painting will happen this weekend

so my question is what paint and steps to take for a nice glossy black finish? i read scotch bright the pieces, then duplicolor sandable primer, then sand? then just hit it with the duplicolor black? or krylon? just need ideas and good steps for a perfect finish

also thought abou maybe yellow since my calipers and drums are yellow and i would like to paint the valve cover as well...any help and pics would be awesome

Sand it, primer, paint it with krylon glossy, and throw on a few layers of clear coat and it should be good.

Mods: debaged, carbon fiber hood, painted interior trim, lowered
