I got terrific results using this method. Six years on and my doors /interior still looks new and I don't have an issue with chipping.
Start with the Duplicolor self etch primer. This stuff is terrific. it goes on very thin but is extremely durable.
The next step is a little different than most.
Use SEM Color coat in a "close enough" color. Also extremely thin and very tough and durable. Make sure you get everything covered evenly. It works well on metal, plastic and vinyl.
The final step is to very lightly "dust" the panels with the correct color. What you are looking for is just enough paint to wet the surface and give the proper color to the panel, but not so much that you will have trouble with chipping later.
The SEM is very scratch and chip resistant. if you do manage to scratch/chip the top layer of lacquer the layer below usually resists unless the damage is extreme.
Good luck! I hope it turns out well for you.
If it can't be fixed with a hammer, you have an electrical problem...(stolen from the H.A.M.B.)
