    i've used sem interior auto trim paint. it is flexible and low sheen. but your problem is surface prep. You have to sand the the piece first then put a flash coat (pretty much a lite speckled coat) the let it dry according to the can. this will give it some 'tooth' then apply the primer coats. let these dry according to the can then top coat.

    the most important thing about the top coat, besides thin coats, is to apply them within the specified amount of time on the can. if you go over the 15 minutes or so that they say on the can then you have to let the piece fully cure before you can sand and then paint again (48 hours to be safe). regardless; after about 3 coats of product you should sand it a bit.

    buy a can of spray primer-i bought the grey stuff (you've seen those dodge neon's or acura integra's driving around with that flat grey bumper or fender-that's automotive primer). it doesn't matter where you get it, i think i got mine from like home depot or walmart. spray a coat, wait like 45 mins, sand with 1000 or 1500 grit sandpaper, also from walmart or home depot, give it another coat. just wait like 10 mins till it flashes (when you can't see the "gloss" of it being wet, it will dull) then hit it with some paint.

    now, for the paint, i used paint that's the same color as my exterior. you can find flat black anywhere that will match your stock setup in the pics. remember the testor's series paints, the ones you bought to paint the millenium falcon model you had as a kid? (http://www.testors.com/catalog_browse.asp?ictNbr=4) they're as close as auto paint as you can get. exterior auto paint comes it 2 parts-the color, and reducer, pretty much testors does the mixing for you; but it comes in a VERY small bottle. you might need 2 or 3, maybe more.

    anyway, go to some arts and crafts store (we have ac moore, michael's crafts) go find the section with the paints and airbrush section. buy yourself a can of air propellant. basically you need this to spray the testors paints through this. get some thinners, should be next to the testors paints, and thin it out before you spray.

    spray the color coats after the primer flashes. let it dry for some time, few hours, and sand it again with a water soaked 1500 grit sandpaper until the high spots are gone, repeat maybe 2 more times. that's about it. if you're feeling fancy, give it a coat or 2 of clear coat. it'll look *blingtastic*

    Works for me........ you can get the cheap one from autozone (duplicolor) but what is the reason on spending $800 to $1000+ if when the moment of make it look good the stuff start falling a part.

    My epoxy,filler and pin holes putty and paint cost me around $100.
