Need to darken/paint interior trim

The trim of the AC vent between the door and the steering wheel reflects into the window, obscuring the driver side mirror. It's not the reflection in the mirror, but the reflection of the trim into the glass that hits right where the mirror is. It fills the entire space of the mirror making visibility of things in the mirror difficult.
Can I use SEM black to paint it? Anything better?

I would look into using plastic trim paint flat color do a goggle search and you tube info as it has to be done correctly or it will peel and crack.

Hey @grandzu ,

Other than painting the OE trim, you may be interested in adding stick-on overlay pieces to your vehicle's interior. You can pick black, carbon fiber or any other color and material option out of 40+ variants we offer. Below is the link to view the products selection.

Just wanted to share an idea with you.
