Blue Plasti Dip?

I am looking at painting my guage cluster, sterring wheel components, and pieces around my shifter (like so many have done).

I have two questions. My car is all blacked out on the outside, and has blue brake calipers (or will this weekend). No other blue accents on the outside, but wanted to carry that into the car.

1. Any recommendation on a good royal blue color I could use? Any GM color? Or recommendation?

2. Has anyone tried the colored plasti dip? Does it come out looking smooth? Matte? Bright, etc?

It'll be matte unless you use a glossifier. I've never used it on the interior, I painted mine but I suppose it'll look good there too

Thanks, yeah I as thinking just a few places to try it out.. that way I wasn't stuck with it forever. Unless I can find a nice dark glossy royal blue I could do.

Do you think this project in general is something I could do? or professionally painted is better?

Plastidip is extremely easy to use. If you don't like it just pull it off. Its not hard to remove the interior pieces either. You'll be fine doing it yourself.

Yeah that is sort of what I wanted to do plasti dip for.. I've used the black on a lot of exterior pieces, and was even thinking of doing black on interior, but wanted some color to break it up.

Either blue or white... but wanted blue -
