Another good tip, try to pull the masking off before the paint has dried. I usually wait about 10-15 mins for the paint to tack up. You are less likely to pull up the paint with the mask if it is still soft. If there is lettering on the part, I did a steering column surround that had 'Hazards' on it, a thin coat of oil/grease/vaseline works as a mask as well. After the paint has dried, just wash the part with warm soapy water. The grease/vaseline will break down and lift the paint with it. I will try to take some pics of the column tonight. If the color is available in the Krylon Fusion line, then you can skip the primer part. In all, great write up!

Great post! I'd like to add, I found a great velvety/semigloss black colour for cheap called "Touch N' Tone" available in some local Drug Mart stores, it lays down easy and looks great! The finish also seems fairly durable. Best part is it's cheap! http://paint-and-supplies.hardwarestore ... 60083.aspx
