interior and exterior painting help

Hey, two quick questions about painting.

I've already painted my interior trim pieces, but the color is too bright. where can i get the exact (or close to) color of my exterior, and also, how can i get the pieces smooth and glossy like pictured here:
2000 Ford Mustang Photo

also, i have a small touch up i need to do on the exterior (might be able to see it in my avatar picture. its on the passanger side) there is already some grey primer stuff on it, but where is the best place to get the paint?

Re: interior and exterior painting help

On the interior.....once you find the right color/color you want, just clear-coat it. That's what the pic looks like.
For touch-up paint, you MIGHT be able to find the correct color at any decent parts store, but just to make sure you get a match, you may want to just get it from your local ford dealer. They should be able to pull the correct paint code, and sell/order the correct stuff for you.
Am I right guys? lol

Re: interior and exterior painting help

if i buy a spray can of my exterior color, can i use that on the interior plastic pieces, then put a clear coat on it? or will it not bond or something to the plastic?

You will have to check the can to see what the paint is made for. Usually paint will cover a wide range of surfaces (taking into account proper prep work) but some formulas may not be suitable for a type of surface.

Re: interior and exterior painting help

If your painting the plastic, use an adhesion promoter first.

Re: interior and exterior painting help

i used bull dog adhesion promoter when i painted my 97 f150 dash back in the day. you just need to make sure there is no dust or armor all type stuff on it.

when i want something color matched i go to oriellys and give them my paint code and i always use the ppg and everything matches pretty good.

Re: interior and exterior painting help

For plastics pick up some Krylon Fusion paint, no primer or extensive prep work is needed. Just make sure the surface is clean and wipe it down with Isopropanol before doing the first coat.
