    But if done correctly, you can get close to the same finish on them. Admittedly, since you aren't baking the paint, it's not as deep. And it doesn't look the same on textured plastic as it does on smooth, but the effect is there. If you use automotive paint that is colour matched to the vehicle, it looks fantastic. Don't just use any old spray paint for the colour. Therein lies the secret.

    In order to get them colour matched, you are looking at a 4 part process.
    1. clean the panels with alochol to get rid of any of the evil armor all ****e, it will cause you more headaches than it is worth in the long run.
    2. (you can sand the panels to scuff them up if you want to, but it's not really necessary, especially if you are working with textured plastic) Get some duplicolour adhesion promoter. 2 coats of that.
    3. Spray on you colour, 4-5 thin coats for a nice even finish, waiting 30 minutes between each coat.
    4. Clearcoat, 2-3 thin coats. Makes for a nice deep finish.

    Don't rub it, wipe it, clean it, or anything for 2 weeks to allow it to properly cure. and you are good to go.

    Hey, what did you use to apply each material. I mean when did you brush, spray can, or use a spray gun?

    Typically, a spray gun is necessary for any automotive style paint. A brush will leave streaks and spray cans aren't generally going to give you a high quality and durable finish like true automotive paint.

    Door panel painting

    I had my door panels painted by this website www.bosspaint.com and my door panels turned out great. The paint hasn't faded or chiped at all.

    Well you obviously didn't prep very well, either the sanding or the primer or you just didn't apply the paint in thin coats because mine is going on 11 months and still looks great.

    I don't think it was the prep work that caused the paint to scratch so easily. Spray paint just can't hold up to as much wear and tear as real auto paint can.

    I agree automotive paint is better but if prepped properly rattle-can paints can hold up really well and look almost as good. I'm going over a year on some interior pieces I painted and have had no issues. This includes my switch plates which are touched all the time.
