Default Couple questions on painting.

Okay so ive read all of the interior painting forums...and some go half way into things.. Doesnt go step by step process which is what i need im knew at this and im afraid i messed up already.... So i did the little vents and the flip up on the center console and my dash around my radio... And this is where im at they look okay but they could be better.. And pretty much what i did was wipe them down with a wax and grease remover to get any crap off... Then applyed a plastic primer 2 coats. then i used a silver metel flake color and applyed 2 coats one light then another. Than last i put 2 lights coats od clear coat... Is ther anyway i can make these look better i can get more peices so im not to worried. Help me please.

Better to dye then paint, otherwise youll be like me, repainting every so often lol.

There is a tutorial in the how to section. You can also use fabric to conver some areas, my radio bezel has fabric that matches my headliner.

I did mine with Krylon Fusion almost 2 years and it hasn't rubbed off anywhere at all, just cleaned like you did then hit it with the spray.

I have a How to somewhere on here myself but its pretty old

I pick it up at the local ACE but i've seen it at Wal-mart, Lowes, Home-Depot etc...

I've never had the spider webbing problem, it may be because the paint isn't made for plastics so its not bonding as well as it should?

heres my write up

the spider webbing happens either because, like andrew said the paint is not made for plastics or you are spraying too much paint and holding the can too close to the dash console. I had this problem when I first painted my radio bezel. All you have to do is hold the spray can further away and spray LIGHT coats. Let it dry for 15 minutes then spray another coat. I did two coats on mine and it looks great.

Walmart here ids me everytime. Its perobably my dress, but still. I buy paint on a weekly basis, sometimes more. Every cashier has seen my id, some more than once in a shift and they still ask lol.

Id have to see a picture of the problem with the bezel youre talking about. I dont recall any layer of plastic when I painter or covered mine in fabric.

plastic is made from petroleum (OIL) ...........every thing from car parts to tooth brushes.. ....oil n paint do not mix, the average door panel has 2 quarts of oil in it? the average tire has 7 quarts of oil on it..
