Default Interior plastic

Alright guys, need your input on what you all are using to refinish your interior. I just got another fox (been without a stang for 9yrs) and it's a project. The interior is mismatched and wanted to know what you're using for the plastic. On my last one I primed the red plastic and used a black plastic dye from a rattle can. Look OK but wanted to know if there is something better. I think paint is to glossy (unless I'm missing something). Let me know and if you have pictures please post, thanks in advance.

Duplicolor vinyl and fabric paint. Ue a good degreaser first and then adhesion promoter. It won't flake off.

I used Colorbond from LMC Truck on my Bronco (arm rest pads) and it matched the existing stuff well, and was easy to use. Just prep it right.

Yeah it gets a bit expensive imho, but worth it for top notch results.

Depending on how much you're doing, you'll need a few cans of the "paint" at $20 each. Then you'll need some wax and grease remover, and the adhesion promoter. I wouldn't try to use it without both of those. But as long as the panel was in good shape (except for the finish) it will come out looking pretty much brand new.
