    I've only ever done a Japanese produced car, but those vinyl paints are made for headliners. I just wish I could give you a brand name.

      I'd be concerned about the paint cracking over time. There is only so much a paint can flex.

        You would not be using a paint like an automotive paint that would be used on the outside of the car, but a dye made for vinyl. The product I used is made by "SEM" and can be mixed to almost any color. WESCO Auto Paint carries this product and can advise you how to use it. It can be purchased in spray cans as well as pints on up! Cleaning and masking are important as is heat and ventilation. Make sure you ask for the product sheet that will tell you what you need to know.
        Good luck and wear a respirator.

          If you do it, I'd like to hear how it goes. The dye process sounds intriguing.

            I went to a craft store and bought vinyl paint, stay flexible. I hand painted. Been 7 years and all's well.
