Interior door panel paint??

I was wondering if anyone knew a easy cheap way to get this repainted or if I could just do it black. I called around a few places and they told me it is really difficult to duplicate the color because it's matalic all 4 door panels would need repainted. Quick solutions anyone?
It is a 2010 Chevy colbalt LT the color is silver

You could try to match it or possibly buy a new one but it really wouldn't take much to paint all 4 to whatever color you want.. mine will most likely all be pulled off and painted red to match the body color over the winter

Is there a way to just strip the color it's self and leave it as the black plastic that's under the paint?

Maybe, but no guarantee of how it will turn out.. you could always paint them black if you want black. One can of spray paint should be more than enough for all 4

You could try using a mineral spirits soaked rag to strip the paint. If that fails, you can always paint over it like rrob was saying. If you decide to try the mineral spirits, be careful to not get any in the switches. They're awfully fragile and hate moisture of any kind.

I take the switches out when painting those. It's not too hard.

I wouldn't imagine it'd be terribly difficult, but I've also never done it, so I wasn't going to assume anything!

Yeah, I did a friend's cobalt's interior trim, and those switches came out fairly easily. Just be careful not to crack the clips.
