Some people go all out and have a professional paint shop do it - this way always looks the best.
theres the high budget do-it-yourself method... (what i did)
i actually went out and had a tin of the Rio Red Tri-Coat mixed... i picked rio red kinda 'in memory' of my old cougar that was totalled.
combined that paint with an airbrush and off i went... i coulda painted 1/4 my car Rio Red with all the paint i had... but i figured it was best to stick with just painting the dash... good **** too, since i used automotive primer, paint and clearcoat - it never chipped, scratched or peeled.
then theres the low budget do-it-yourself way... where you can just go to any pepboyz, autozone, canadian tire, and get primer, ____ color, and a clearcoat rattle cans, and paint your pieces on the lawn in an afternoon.
professional paint shop way = you will be paranoid of getting your stuff scratched cause it will look so good :tongue:
high budget = a little TOO costly... i wouldn't do it again, but it did turn out great, and it lasts.
low budget = ... that old saying "you get what you pay for" comes to mind... it will work, but take your time so you dont get any drips, runs or other rattle can related problems... and the paint might scratch easily. (i would imagine)
