    After painting a few things on the exterior of my Taco I felt more comfortable with sanding, wet sand, brushing etc. Coming up with a couple of ideas I looked at the interior possibilities. This is a couple of things i came up with. Let me know what you guys think

    Re: Edit to this....forgot to mention I have 3 extras of the radio, center and overhead, these are just mock ups before I decide on a final paint
    :cheers:

    if you like it, thats all that matters I would have probably done t black, and use the red as an accent

    I didnt do any sanding on mine and used fusion and its holding up great

    Your paint scheme with the silver surrounds on the vents is what I used for a basis for my interior but I kept the chrome trim on the shifter and made the entire center console piece black instead of just the top.

    Krylon Fusion cracked on me for some reason and I had to use a flat black automotive paint. Its less glossy than Fusion though so I am happy.

    Hey u guys that used the fusion paint did u use any sorta clear coat? I used fusion on my door switch panels and within a few month the paint is wearing off especially where my leg hits against the door. I used a few thin coats of the paint with alittle sanding but no primer or clear coat. Is there a way to remove the old paint to try again without damaging the plastic?
