Thought I'd share with you guys :) I painted my trim center stack and it looked dull (like it was obvious I sprayed it haha:notrust:), so anyways, I bought some clear automotive clear coat, wet sand and cut polish and took my rotary buffer to it :amazed:. Never buffed plastics before on such an odd shape but I think it turned out Great, :) whatcha'all think? :)

That looks pretty good. I am thinking of possibly painting some of the interior trim to match the exterior paint. It's scratched and chipped up, and generally cheap-looking lol. What you did came out looking rather nice, might I ask what type of paint you used?

thanks all :) I used just a can of black rustoleum gloss paint and primer then some duplicolour wheel clean coat that I had lying around(was sort of a boredom project haha!).. ...we tried to buff my friends trim, he used "krylon fusion plasic paint"(said no priming required) and same brand clear coat. and it chipped off.

Had been on his trim for 2 weeks, later we re did his trim but primed it with some rustoleum primer and it came out great!.. so I dunno, I guess I'd advise to prime it first lol.
