Hey, just wanted to say that there are many shops out there that will do a horrible job, especially when they're not making jack squat off of painting a few interior trim pieces. Don't doubt the rattle can for it can do amazing things when done right. Most of the info. here is amazing and all you really need to get your pieces done right. Don't RUSH. Don't spray thick coats, painting is time consuming, thin coats are better, no drips and caked on paint that will take forever to dry. Paint from 8 to 10 inches away or so. Sand it down BEFORE you paint it, make the surface rough and it'll grab paint much better (except for maybe this plastic paint everyone's talking about which is news to me). Oh and, for those of you who have yet to paint, don't use a rattle-can if it's almost out of paint, get a new one. Cans tend to squirt huge chunks of paint out when they're about to die, don't want to get everything done nice and neat and then get huge drops of paint on your piece (personal experience), and no, you can't grab something and try to wipe it off real quick (not a personal experience but I've seen someone else do it). Take your time, do it right, and guaranteed it'll look like you got it done by a very professional shop that would actually invest good work on such a small job. I'll try to post some DIY pics soon, mine are getting to the point where they need to be resprayed as well.
