Hi folks,

I have a grey jump seat in a tan weekender interior and as well as getting the upholstery redone would like to paint the side covers.

Can anyone recommend a decent paint for this job?

Vinyl spray paint works very well for this. It's available at most FLAPS. I used gray, but there are tans and browns available.

Prep and clean the surface well. FYI, I went light gray over dark blue and the coverage was great!

The aerosol plastic dye spray cans from SEM are a great product. They have a bunch of greys to choose from and I get mine at the local automotive paint supplier that all the pain shops buy through. Your town will have one as well.
