Prep work for interior paint job

I want to paint the interior plastic paneling on my 1999 mustang and I was wondering what kind of prep work would be involved so it doesn't chip, smear, fade etc. I am only going to be doing the smooth plastic such as the door panels and the bezel around the speedometer etc. I will be using spray paint and then clear coating it. Any suggestions?

I dont know what kind of paint I'll be using because I'm going to be repainting my car sonic blue and I'll be looking for a color closest to that. But I am very close to walmart so I could take a look.

What did the pieces look like after you used paint thinner. Were they coarse or smooth, black? etc

So I'm guessing that total prep is some kind of cleaning solution? And your saying I should prime it then sand it?

when using spray paint you should let the paint dry for at least two weeks before you spray your clear or it will haze

yes that way it is all smoth so you dont see all the bumps that are on the plastic parts it will make it look smoth. I dont think you have to wate two weeks to let the paint dry be4 you cc it maybe like a hour or so untill it flaches
