Default Need Some Advice On Painting Interior Pieces (Non 6 Gen)

hey guys, so my z center console is getting pretty scratched up due to the garbage material that nissan used on the center console. The texture is somewhat like a ping pong paddle feel. I was wondering whats the best paint that i can get in can form to paint my interior pieces gloss black, or as simple as regular black? I came by this youtube video but wanted to know if anyone has some feedback on paint theyve used etc, i really want a gloss look but if its not possible i can be satisfied with regular black. Thanks

p.s, please include steps i should take to painting these things, ive heard some people sand it and others dont

If you get spray can black with gloss you won't have sheen uniformity. I suggest you get a flat black and then Spray on a clear coat. This will give you more of an oem finish. The more you prep the better the results. Sand primer top coat and clear coat there are many of how-to's all over the interwebs. Just be patient and remember that multiple lighter coats will give you a better finish then one heavy coat.

@amaxxf09 @Staggered357 I was thinking of sending them to jm auto but wanted to try myself beforehand, just in case it turns out good ill keep them, if not off to jm auto
@Lulzz do you think sanding it will ruin the texture and make it uneven?

No. There is no need to use coarse grit sandpaper that will ruin the texture. You just want to create a profile so the primer or paint has better adhesion. 600 grit should do it.

You should just sand the ridges out, then smooth it with lesser grit paper; then paint it~ If it doesn't work out then you can still get hydrographics on it since its already kinda prep'd~~ I've seen this done on a couple Z's

Have you done your math on the cost of doing hydro graphics? I was going to have my main engine cover done, with shipping it will be over 300.00. It's nice, but not cheap.

Yeah it'll be around $102+ shipping etc. Not bad at all considering people charge $150+ to vynil wrap it down here, so I want to do it myself before I send it in just in case I do a good job and decide to keep it as is, if all else fails, hydrographics it is and ill pretend it never happened

This is what I've seen~ Looks very time consuming. I think 80 is a little big to start with but depends on your skill. Let me say also that i haven't done this, i just read it......LOL
