Thinking of spraying the silver plastics eg radio surround, blower surrounds etc...

What do I need primer? What paint? Gloss?

Have something to contribute?

600-800-1200-2000 grit paper, plastic primer i suggest silver in colour, then the colour paint you want, then a lacquer 2k all in aerosol form 

 

take the plastic off sand down with 600 paper

wash them with soapy water and dry thoroughly 

plastic primer 3 coasts light then get heavier as you go

leave 24 hours 

grit with 800 on the rough areas 

wash and dry again

paint using the colour you wish 

leave 24 hours 

sand with 1200 grit on rough areas only 

wash and dry 

then one last colour wait 30mins 

then 3 coast of lacquer 

wait 24 hours 

grit with 2000 paper very lightly!!! then t cut or polish them up 

all done and back in they go :) worked for me very well

What's the best way to remove the steering wheel trim after removing the 3 screws?

I bought a wheel on eBay and found it needed some force (bearing in mind there was no air bag) to remove it? Is there any chance of the airbag going off while I remove the trim that's in the car?

just do one side at a time, bend it round and out and pull 3 screws and 3 clips i think it does take some force but its fine 

 

keep ignition off and no chance of it going off i believe

Start on the side without buttons (unless in a Titanium) and pull it out around the airbag. Flip it over towards the end to unplug cable from switch.

Couldn't wait so I went to halfords and got some Ford electric Orange spray paint and started on the wheel trim, so far so good.
