painting interior question

so i just bought another honda my 4th that is in my driveway, driveway is full on one side but it looks so great with all hondas. But anyways the interior is a nasty red the dash, door panels, every plastic piece in front. Should i sand it down, prime it , then paint or just prime and paint it? If i do have to sand does anyone know what grit sand paper to use to get the red off. I am just trying to paint it black to make it look good and not like a blood owns the car. If anyone could help it would be muchly appreciated.

Re: painting interior question

Just make sure you prep the area real good. make sure you dont use armor all for like a month or the paint will start to chip.

Re: painting interior question

Do Not Use Armor-all..... at all.... it is NOT a good product for any interior vinyl or plastic surface. And ESPECIALLY not for a painted surface.. that is just silly to even recomend....

Since you are taking the time to prep and paint your interior, use a few coats of clear sealer, wet sanding between coats, then buff. If you want it to shine, then use a wax. It will shine longer and protect the paint/sealer while not deteriorating all of your hard work.

Re: painting interior question

armor all is oil based so when it dries it tends to make the plastic/vinyl crack, best stuff to use is either turtle wax ice interior cleaner, or any interior cleaner that is not oil based, it will say it on the bottle, i made the mistake of using armor all on the dash of my 76 monte carlo and thats where it cracked for the first time, talk about pissed!!!!!!!!

Re: painting interior question

Wait wait wait... Is this red interior part of the SIR??? Don't paint it if it is, infact you'd be better selling it and buying black pieces. SIR interior sells for quiet a bit(;

So Armor All is not good for anything on my car? I use the car wash/wax, tire shine, window cleaner, and rim cleaner...

Re: painting interior question

I will not use any form of Armor-all product as a result of Personal experience and over-all preference/performance..or lack there-of. I cannot support their product, sorry.

I do recommend anything by Mothers®. They have never let me down or caused any issues similar to the a-fore mentioned.

You, sir, just made yourself look absolutely ridiculous...especially after what has just been posted about one of the WORST car care products on the market. This is comparable to, say, me telling someone that roof flashing was ok to use in lieu of Damplifier.
Since you haven't, apparently, read ANY of the posts beyond the OP's starting comments, I have included them below.

Please, do your research (<-- thats a link BTW) before recommending a product or repair that does not work. I like my Prelude Zone to be full of helpful information. Kthxbai!

Here is the MSDS On Armor-all: Under reactivity, aka, out-gasing, aka this is the **** you are breathing every time you drive your car with that shiny, glaring, shine we find:
Hazardous Decomposition Products: CARBON MONOXIDE, CARBON DIOXIDE, SULFUR DIOXIDE (<--those are links too)


Meguirs, Mothers, Turtle....But NOT Armor-all for god's sake!
