As long as you don't touch what you plastidipped a whole bunch of times you should be good.

^ What they said. Plasti Dip will peel very fast in the interior with all the touching you will do to it.

I used this: Duplicolor Vinyl Flat Black

I love how it looks.

Also, clean very well your interior parts. I disassembled my whole interior and washed heavily all the parts. Then lightly sand them with very fine sanding paper. Then, even though the paint says it has a lot of adhesion promoter, apply adhesion promoter to all the parts and be generous with it.

After it has dried well, apply the paint. Any other flat black paint might work, but my experience with duplicolor was good. I personally applied about 8 light coats.

This car is my daily driver I am pretty careless with my boots while I am driving. Even though I keep "scratching" the panels below, the paint has held up great and no scratches show.

Hope this helps.

Complete black interior FTMFW!

Hmmm. Well, perhaps mine is not as bad because I have 30% tint all around. Maybe it keeps it cool enough. Apart from that, I don't know. Temperatures here are like 90 to 105 when its not raining.

As for the steering wheel, its already black. The paint matched the OEM black trim perfectly. I do plan on getting a leather stitched grip for the wheel though. Right now it has one of those $10 crap perforated PVC covers. Looks nice though. Hahahaha!
