I don't have any pics but I can tell you it looks ALOT better on the inside after you paint some pieces. I painted the driver side and passenger side window/lock controllers, The covers on the other side of the side view mirrors (they look like triangles), the big center piece that goes around the stereo, heater/AC controls, etc.. I also repainted the maroon stripe that goes from one door to the other. I chose to paint the stuff the same color as my exterior. I also painted a few coats on the inside of the dome light so that it is like a red blacklight. You got to be sure that you do a good job on it or else the paint will come off and look crappy. Its not hard to do.
1. Choose the color you want
2. Using masking tape, cover up any parts that you don't want to
be painted (like the window and lock buttons).
3. Clean the piece very good with paint thinner that has MINERAL
SPIRITS in it. Clean it GOOD.
4. Spray on a light layer and let it dry.
5. Spray on another EVENLY sprayed layer. Let it dry for about
10-15 minutes.
6. Continue putting on layers. I used about 6 layers and they
look great.

I have some pictures of my painted interior pieces, I posted instructions on PT, but if you want to know how to paint them right just ask me, mine is great, and has been perfect for almost 8 months now. Its chrome colored, people thinks its tight, I have been paid to do other peoples cars too by the way.

To paint the piece, remove it, wash it off with soap & water (to remove any dust & protectant that'll keep the paint from sticking).
Head to Walmart and pick up some primer, a top coat, and some clear coat.
Primer the piece with a few thin layers of primer, let dry, then a few layers of top coat.
After both of those are dry, then spray some clear coat on them, and be done with it.

If you use several thin coats, the paint will stick better, won't run, and won't chip easily.

You can also sand off the texture on the pieces that you decide to paint.
Just depends on what kind of look you're going for.

I think they're talking about paint that comes in a spray can.
