You might actually have some luck at walmart if your still looking to find those spray paints. Depending on the store, they sometimes have quite a bit of Duplicolor and krylon but its kind of hit and miss. One of them I went to looked like a disaster with used cans everywhere lol.

The first video on that site about applying vinyl film with a reproduction checker plate pattern looks like an interesting idea. My company gets in polish aluminum checker plate ever now and then and it looks really cool, the stuff hes using in the video looks to be a good replica and probably a way cheaper alternative.

automotive spray paint is the best bet, or if you are looking for a black interior, check out some cases that already have it... itll save you a LOT of time, and no headaches.
