Paint Interior of Factory Hard Top

I'm looking to spray paint the interior of my hard top flat black. It came white on the inside - yuk! Any suggestions on which brand/kind of rattle cans would be best...?

My wife wants to "splatter paint" or "tie dye" paint over that flat black. Any paint brand/kind suggestions there? I'm concerned 'normal' paint (like household) won't hold up in the summer heat.

Thanks in advance!

a REAL good clean,sand well with maybe 220 grit...a good primer and some auto paint preferably..regular house type paints won't hold well at all.

I would suggest considering a semi gloss or matte finish. Cleaning a rough surface with flat paint will be difficult. In addition, don't be afraid to break out a spray gun instead of spray bomb. You can doo eet.
