    I have a 99 Gmc Sonoma Ls Series, I Want to Paint the Speaker Grills (One on doors and top of dashboard) Blue, Heres my Issues, Door Grill is Fine, But the ones on the dashboard have Extremly Small Holes and if i Paid them with a Rattle can or buy a paint gun for my compresser i'm affarid of cloging all the small holes, i was told to put a toothpick in them but OMG theres over 300 in one! I am a Novice At This so Simple Ideas lol and Should i Clear Coat them?

    Also doing Door Handles (Trim) and Dashboard Trim aswell


    Thanks!!

    I would think that leaving it on and painting would be problematic. You'll just have to put something like a toothpick in there, which isn't that big of a deal, you're in maybe 5 minutes of work to prep with that.

    Upload some pics if/when you do this though. :) :lol:
