Painting interior panels

I want to change the color of my interior. In addition to new seat covers and carpet, what are some suggested products for painting the door/side panels, dash, etc.?

Re: Valves Knocking at Idle

Oil cooler and top are clean. I know the mechanic that replaced oil cooler rings for me also advanced the timing. Thanks.
