Painting interior?

I had a question about painting the interior pieces of my car. It's "Palmy Blue" And I'd like to go with a nice "Not 90's black" color with maybe dark blue accenting. Or yellow. I dunno. Regardless, I'd rather stray away from buying all new dash and side paneling and stuff, I was wondering if there was a way of painting or dying that squishy vinyl sh!t or the hard plastic pieces, without it looking like total garbage. Thinking about having someone reupholster the seats and stuff.

Re: Painting interior?

yeah it does chip easily and it also gives it that glossy cheap touch and feel. better to just buy some black and clean it really well.

Re: Painting interior?

If your experience is it Chipping too Easy, maybe you should examine your process of applying it.

Contrary to popular belief, You can't just spray n go.. with ANY paint.

The prep work is as important as the finish work.
