Probably...but i wouldnt. I would go to autozone or some equivalent and buy duplicolor spray paint that they have to match the color of your car. Get primer and base color...and clear coat if you want it really nice...and it will cost you a lot less. Oh and i know it's exterior paint...but i've used it before on plastic trim pieces in my eclipse and it turned out fine. thumbsup

Yeah, you can. No problem. BUT - think it over a bit before you do: Inside your car, you're throwing around coins, keys, cd's, maybe you've got a watch that's scraping against your plastic when you're shifting or whatever.
Now, imagine how carefull you'll have to be not to scrape up anything if you've got your interior painted..
