I got it at Autozone. It's made by Pilot.

Sorry I've been away for a while... The only prep I did was wipe every piece down with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or oil. Then I tied a piece of fishing line to the back of each piece and hung them from the roof of my garage. I did this mainly to make them easier to spray all over without repositioning.

Looks good. How have they been holding up as far as chipping, etc??

They've been holding up great. No flaking or chiping, the paint itself is more like a plastic powder coat than a paint. If that makes any sense. I think I paid $5 for it at home depot, but you can also find it at walmart or other hardware stores. I did all the armrests on the doors plus the plastic around the radio with only one can. The main thing is just to take your time.
