    You can't take the panel off and remove the top black trim and re-tuck the gray part? Yeah, time for new door panels lol

    Can't do much about the door panels unless you buy new ones. But you can always try vinyl wrapping some of the interior pieces.

    There's definitely nothing that paint will do for that though

    glue that cover back on the plastic for the door panel so that it's flat up against it first. then, ou can take a line of black electrical tape across the top of that part. the tape will try to contract so let it do that before putting it on the door panel, and try to not stretch it much. it won't last a year, but make a big immediate easy improvement. I had mine taped on the top because I had the same cuts. I've since replaced mine with black panels from a corolla s

    don't paint the shifter or ebrake handle, of anything that seems rubbery. don't paint the trim between the floor and the door because it will immediately be scratched. where the speaker covers are on the door panels will also be scratched very easily.
