Painted door panels

Figured I would split up the plain and kinda blah all tan door panels on my truck by painting the pockets with plasti-coat. Pretty cool since they have a rubbery feel and more durable than regular paint. Hardest part was cleaning the conditioners off so the tape would stick. Still a little wet in the picture.

Mines a lariat, full leather and premium sound system, and they are right above the wood trim, you can see them in the picture. There's also a sub on the passenger side behind the seat.

Hey, post another picture now that it has had time to set up. It almost looks photoshopped in the picture you posted. Maybe try and have the sunlight shining on it and a little closer up. I am interested, but dang... ballsy move spraying your door panel. Would it peel back off if you didn't like it. I know some have done their wheels and it peels off, but that is metal and you have applied it to a granular plastic surface... just curious.

I like the look, but would want the sheen to be even.
