Ok so im going to be getting rid of the wood trim in my car because the clear coat on it is starting to crack all over and i originally wanted to do the carbon fiber wrap in silver but now am leaning towards the silver/aluminum finish that the 330s have any suggestions on spray paints and such i have clear coat available so no need for that

Why not just buy new OEM aluminium brushed columns trim? Yeah, its pricey but it'll look like a whole new interior.

I have done spray paint twice (once light silver, once darker silver) on my trim (see pics). Both were done with duplicolor (3 coats) and duplicolor clear (4 coats). When done it is rock hard and lasts great!

Used the dupli-color on my M steering wheel lower piece and paddle shifters. Came out great.
4 coats color, three coats clear.
One note - make sure the clear you have is fully compatible with whatever color coat you use. If in question, get another can of clear-coat that's the same brand.
