I am planning on painting the interior of my car over the next week or so, and am curious as to what most of you guys have used. I have a gun set up available to me as well, if that is the best method to go. I have seen a few people use brush on Rustoleum yielding good results, and this seems to be the easiest method if I could get it to look good on the metal and the cage. any thoughts? edit: Im looking to paint it white if that matters but im not set of that

I used 7 cans of semi-gloss white Rustoleum. Spray on. The semi gloss makes cleaning pretty simple and havn't had any issues with it peeling off. Took just a couple hours one afternoon and dries very quickly.

I used something similar but left a small square unpainted to see if I cold tell a difference in temperature. I couldn't. On my next car I may put some of that gold foil on the outside of the transmission tunnel to cut the heat down.

In a previous thread Dave W. said he paints the inside of all his cars white. Mine is painted a faux stainless steel appliance paint (aka poor mans chrome) which you'd think would be the worst for glare but I never have a problem with it personally provided I keep the inside of the rear window clean.

I used rattle cans, silver to match the sliver in the tub already, I will have to look to see how much glare that produces, I assume you like that flat black. I was thinking of using that paint they sell as a PU bed liner its black with texture and is hard as a rock for the rear deck.
I actually run an FP Miata, so the difference is the cage is out in the elements, but what I've found that works real well is Dupli-Color wheel paint. It comes out looking real nice and it's got a hard finish to minimize dings and scratches. On mine, I go over it with the same wheel paint in clear for a little more protection.

Dupli-color sounds good. We used the gloss white rustoleum with a brush then sprayed over it when the brush coat was tackey. Worked well. this method came from Wheelers book. The only drawback with rustoleum is that it not that hard when fully cured. it scratches. But easily touched up.
