I guess I'm lazy. I just left mine black. It matches the dash surround nicely.

Maybe the Krylon fusion for plastics if the color is close. I get interior color mixed to match and spray it. CSIPSD has the right idea. Cost me $25 for the custom mixed plus gun clean up. I'd pay $40 and keep the extra for touch ups.
