I wanted to paint the tips of my cupholders (the part where u push to open it), and also the drivers door interior handle, and other parts like that, as you may know they have that soft material wrapped on there parts, which chip away over the years, is there and specific paint for this? and is there a DIY for this? would i need to peel off that material than paint it?

I would suggest stripping the old material off with paint thinner or a similar solvent. Then use Plasti Dip spray paint, they make it in black and sell it online or at home depot/lowes. It should hold up to skin oils and has a very similar appearance to the factory finish that is prone to peeling. Good luck!

Yea i just went on their site and it says it can be used for auto stuff, and an example was on steering wheels, so im guessing it will hold up with skin oil
