      I like mine mainland Haole style, with butter. Not a big fan of rice on cars though.

      I'm trying to paint my door handles, the radio trim, ashtray cover & trim around the shifter. Not too fancy though just repaint um black & give it a gloss finish if possible....

      I've had good results with Duplicolor Vinyl @ Fabric coating. Clean area real good and spray really light coats.
