thanks for the comments. i think the blue looks out of place too. ill think about changing the color.

What is that SEM?
Is that just a clear coat for the vinyl?
Thats just a paint that can be used on vinyl parts.

Looks nice.

What steps did you take before painting them?
I didnt do the sanding. In the beginning, i started to clean the parts with acetone and Klean Strip Paint Thinner but got lazy and just washed it with water. When it was dry, I just used the SEM paint and did 3 coats. The paint sticks well. so far. :)
did the same for the pastic parts. The carpety part, the dark bluish color part, well....
I thought i could just paint over that too but I was wrong. I wanted it white so i started using the white dupli-color and by the 3rd coating, it was still nowhere near white color. So then i added a layer of blue over it but still looked like crap. So i decided I wanted to just blacken that part too so i started adding in black. The color came out to be alrite but the bad thing, that part is supposed to be soft, but its all rough now. :(

why didn't you paint the window switch trim also?and the speaker grille? you can paint the handle also but do the coats lightly that way it'll stick better;)

but good job none the less:thumbup:
