I am looking into converting these two sections from the stock grey to the same shade black as my dash, and before heading to the hardware store I wanted to ask anyone who has already had success with painting these pieces.

-I am planning to pick up satin black krylon fusion spray paint, as I painted my dash trim pieces with gloss white krylon fusion and had a solid turn out. however the glove box has a rougher surface and I am not sure how well the krylon will bond to it. So my question is, how did you guys go about bonding the paint to the rough surface?

-Any help is appreciated, Thanks guys

I'd just do the same process as on the dash, Krylon fusion is your best bet for plastics in my experience, just make sure it's fully degreased and cleaned (armor all will destroy a paint job)

Yeah. Use some acetone to clean the surface.. just wipe it on with a towel and let dry. Then paint. Acetone vaporizes very fast so you don't have to dry with anything.. after about 30 seconds it will all be dried

Yeah acetones great stuff :D! normally I'll usually just use Rubbing Alcohol though, it's cheap as water, does an amazing job at degreasing and evaporates in a flash as well.

Neither will match perfectly. I used satin on mine. It is darker as the upper dash is not actually black (it's more of a really dark grey).

I've done this first with gloss and decided it was too two-toned and went back over with satin then a clear coat. It's pretty easy to take everything apart. The hardest is the glove box, in my opinion.
