Icon7 Interior painting

First off I'm a noob...

I would like to paint some of the plastic interior pieces of my 5th Gen.

Specifically the Stereo bezel, and the plastic pieces on both doors.

I need some help on where to get started :P

Re: Interior painting

If you look at bykfixer's build thread, he painted a lot of his interior pieces white and it looks really nice. You could probably mail him to get some pics if you can't find his thread

Thanx rocker...

Duplicolor on vinyl, krylon on plastic.
Wash with soap n water after carefully removed from the car with a door panel removal tool. Wipe with a soft brush like a toothbrush into textured plastic or vinyl. Rinse thoroughly. Let dry 24 hrs.

Paint 6" away in very light coats. Don't let some bubbling in the first coats freak you out. Use side to side motion moving past object to n fro. Let dry about 30min to an hour between coats. Apply 5-6
coats. Let cure in 70+ temp about a week. (I waited 2).

Paint in 70+, still weather, preferably indoors in good ventilation. I painted under a tree with some wind. Tree stuff and bugs were an issue during drying time. It was 45 when I painted so I painted in direct sunlight. No harm no foul but longer curing time and removal of small items from the tree droppings between coats resulted.

The console is installed, door panel elbow rest was a test to decide install or not. These parts used to be tan.

Re: Interior painting

Something like bezels that are smooth... you might consider real fine sand paper like 800 grit. Paint will adhere better in high wear areas such as glove compartment opener or plastic elbow rests, that sort of thing.
