I am looking to paint my stereo and center console trim red to match the red of the leather of the seats or the Redline stripe, has anyone done this and know what paint will be the best match or of a way to find out.
Thanks for any help

I can't help you with the color of red but I plasti-dipped my stereo and center console and they both turned out great. The benefit over paint is that if I don't want it I can just peel it off.

https://www.dipyourcar.com has just about every color option that is offered. They also have "Glossifier" which adds sheen to the plasti-dip which helps to make it look even better.

I had the grey/black carbon fiber looking stereo and center console and just didn't like it very much.

Hope this helps.

I attempted to use the same method on my car and wasn't really happy with the results. the first problem was that it took way too many coats of plasti dip to cover the pattern that exists on the bezel. as such the amount it took ended up providin for poor look.

if you're going to attempt to use the plastic dip bread I would suggest a base coat of the black to cover the pattern first.

.you may want to check out some of the vinyl trim options available from carid.com as well.
