    Hey Guys,
    I'm thinking about painting my center console black, what type of paint should I use and other than basic cleaning how shoud I prep the surface?
    Do I need to use primer?

    Thanks!

    krylon fusion. its specially made for plastics...no primer necessary!

    i would personally let it dry for at least a week before you put it back. this is something you dont want to rush and then have it scratch or get messed up in some other way.

    Go with satin or flat. Gloss would be to much.
