what's the best spraypaint to use to paint the center console?

I want to repaint my center console silver again. I tried Rust-Olleum Silver Metalic paint last time and it didn't turn out like I wanted. I'm looking for a good spraypaint to use as an alternative. I heard Duplicolor is pretty good, and I also saw a commercial for Krylon on TV. What'd you guys suggest?

no no no.

the best paint is Tamiya. its for plastic models and works great with the plastics in the Celica, even on the engine bay platics.

Tamiya has the best color choices, has metal flakes and pearls too.

i painted my friend's plastics and they came out great. thumbsup

you can buy the paint from a hobby store. (Where they sell plastic models and other "toys" that you assemble, such as gas powered RC cars.

this is the color choice for their spray paints.
