Has anyone painted plastic on seats?

I just ordered new black leather to replace my grey cloth on my seats. I'm trying to decide if I want to mess with painting the plastic at the base of the seat black instead of grey. or if I want to just order the black plastic and change it out.

Has anyone painted these parts? My main concern it scuffing. Pics would be great if you have them. Here are a couple pics of what's on there now:

I've dyed several plastic parts....dash pieces, door panels, 08 consoles.

If you decide to "paint", I'd suggest finding someone to color match and mix up some dye.( Orileys has 2 stores within 25 miles of me that mixes paint. ) Also suggest you have them put it in an aresol can.

after getting your dye mixed/ parts removed

Wash parts with dawn dish detergent...it breaks down greese/oil
( I use a scotch bright pad instead of a rag...scotch bright pad also "scuffs" the surface of the part.)

Rinse washed parts and let dry

I use a rag with rubbing alchol(?) to wipe down the dry part

Get a can of SEM adhision promoter, and follow the directions...light coat, wet coat...

Spray the parts with the dye, light coats until the parts are covered. I spray the back of the parts too, around the edges and anywhere that may be seen.

Its more time consuming than anything.

I'm not changing the entire seats. I'm pulling the cloth off and having leather put on.
