SPRAYIN the Guage Pod... any tips on product

Just got guages and a pod. Unfortunately the pod came in black with no color option. What have you guys used for paint to spray your pods? I have gray interior on a 97 OBS....I would appreciate some insight

you can get the paint from your local auto parts store... take a piece of the interior like the pillar so you can color match it.. make sure its a vinyl type paint

Use plastic primer or plastic spray paint for your primer... then TRY to mach your color. Mine came out a little shinier than the original 10 year old plastic... hardly noticeable, probly just by me bc I know it is.

Make sure you clean the pod real well to get hand oils and such off of it. The lady at home depot said vinager and water... I tried it and it worked well.

I went to an automotive paint store and they custom matched my color off my door code and then mixed me the exact match in a spray can. IIRC the can of paint was about $15 but was more than enough to do the pillar pod.

took my ashtray in to Orileys, they matched it. I used a dye rather than spray paint.
