Painting interior vinyl windows

I am going to replace my picture and casement wooden windows (30 years old) with vinyl replacements. Difficult part is I want a sandtone exterior and white interior. Simonton seems like a good replacement and they offer the exterior color I need but the interior is also sandtone. I want to paint the interior white to match my trim. Does anyone know if this will be a problem? Paint adhering to the vinyl is my main concern. Sherwin Williams said to use their Duration line and if needed a bonding primer. Simonton said i would void the vinyl warranty but I believe(am I'm double checking) that the window warranty will not be voided. Thanks

Paint will probably void the warranty. If you do paint, make sure the vinyl is clean and add emulsa bond to the first coat of paint. Don't paint the tracks! it may affect the operation of the windows and the paint will get rubbed off anyway.
