Interior Painting

So, like many of you have, I'm going to detail parts of my Xtreme in red. I'm doing the air vents, the cubby around the door handles, the bowtie in the steering wheel, the sunken letters in the front air dam (the ones that say S-10 Xtreme) and any bowtie on the outside of the truck. So, what paints do I use and how? Thanks a bunch

Painting the Defroster

I'm finishing up my red interior painting (which is turning out quite nicely). The only things left to do are the defroster, the air vents facing the doors and the rings around the dash speakers. I really don't want to take the whole front dash apart, which I think is what's necessary for those parts to come off, but what have you guys done to get those? I think I'm just going to use car touchup paint with a small brush. What do you guys think?

i personally don't like white on the inside.......if it's between black or white i would do black.....but that's bout the only color i could think about on tan.....or maybe a dark blue.....what color is the exterior?
