I recommend testors model enamel or dupli-color. I have NEVER had satisfactory results with plasti-kote.

Thats my professional opinion thumbsup

I had mine painted dark grape testors and had testors clear coat which had a great finish. When I got my TRD steering wheel sticker it was a lighter purple so I repainted all my interior a plasti-kote purple to match it and the paint clumps very easily. Lots more sanding needed and I still can't get it as nice as the testors. Go with th testors

I put on the AC stickers & I didn't like how it looked, so I threw them away. IMO it looks cleaner if you leave it plain, plus you should already know what the knob settings are.

true but if you plan on selling the car later you should keep it so the next person won't toast in the summa or freeze his ass in the winter grin
