berk?

Yep used satinblack on all of it, I put newspaper under the sunroof bit to make sure paint didn't get on the sunroof glass.

And took the visors apart which was easy enough to paint them, just didnt paint the bits that attatch to the roof as they move and paint would come off over time.

not you matey, was referring to jay's lack of observation!

it's dead easy to remove, take the a,b and c pillars out then unclip all the other stuff take sunvisor off etc, move the door seals out the way and it just slides out

msn if you want a more comprehensive guide!

can you spray right on to the plastic or do you have to prep it first, and what do you do the head lining with?

I just used a tin of normal halfords satin black, theres most likely some sort of fabric paint out there aswell but the halfords stuff did the job.

On the plastics I gave them a light sand and went over it with a paint prep wipe, but tbh i dont think they need any sanding as they are not a smooth surface to start with.
