I would suggest plastic spray paint until you decide you want to spend some serious money.

Its called a interior kit..
No dude don't do it. It's awful. I had the interior kit and its vinyl right? Stuff sucks, good material but it doesn't fully cover any of the trim pieces. Had it when I first started modding a bit and it was a bad experience. It has like these opening cheaply filled in for the SS option and they show so badly. I painted my trim not knoing anything about painting. Just go with that and save yourself the headache.

Gotta pay to play.

Spend the money right the first time and don't half ass it.

How many times I gotta tell you kids you get what you pay for, lol.

Hydrodipping is legit as it gets.

Ok well i got a lil idea that i was thinkin of. What if i take the dash apart and sand it with a fine sand sponge or paper and then spray paint it with a krylon plastic spray paint and gloss? And i was thinking of lil cool design to match the seat covers so it would be black white n blue ? And any one know any type of design tape i can use to make the designs on it were i cut it and paint the design on it i know its not duck tape lol

Do not paint the whole interior. It will look like shit. I did that to mine when I painted my interior trim, and the interior panels looked like shit a month later. The trim looks great still and i painted that over 4 years ago.

This is my trim before I painted the interior





Here it is right after painting the interior.






Other random parts.

Trust me do not paint the interior panels with vinyl and fabric paint. Thats how I did mine the first 4 times, and it looked great for the first 2 months or so, and then its start to wear off. I redid my interior panels with high solids 2 part polyurethane aircraft paint about a year ago, and that seems to be the only paint that has held up. Problem with that is that I don't know if you can just go out and buy that paint. I got it from where I work, I'm an Aircraft Mechanic/Painter.
