Hey mate,
I'm in the middle of changing the interior on mine. There are a couple of brands out there that make vinyl and plastic paint. The ones I'm using are by motorspray and K+H, both work beautifully, just be sure to give the parts your painting a good clean with meths or something to clean off any dust or crap and to remove armorall or other protectants, and all will be peachy!

I would strongly recommend UHT spray dyes. Whatever you do, do not use Septone vinyl dye, as they run and are generally crap.

I find uht dyes are good and alot of other vinyl paints just make sure it is cleaned off well and truly and that you dont just use normal paint as it will crack and peel within months.
