My interior is in a mint condition, except for the center piece (between the seats). As you can see from the below photo, the plastic there is a bit scratched up. Have you guys ever tried painting those pieces? I'm assuming it would have to be some sort of a rubberized paint. Any ideas? <br>Thanks in advance<p><IMG SRC="http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/8599/dsc0102r.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: How to refinish interior plastics? (tomedkaz)

There is a thread where someone did it before. They matched up the paint pretty well. That is the type of spot that will always get jacked up over and over again, so any fix will be temporary <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Radar, phone chargers, Nav, SAT etc. might at the most draw 1 Amp.

The Duplicolor bumper coating spray is pretty tough. I didn't use a clearcoat after applying the paint and I thought that might be a mistake but the paint is still so fresh and so clean clean.<p>
