then you didnt do it right. The Krylon Fusion is the paint that flexes, it doesnt stick THAT well to plastic. What you gotta do is sand the area with about 320 grit sandpaper, apply primer, then color, then wait a week for the paint to cure, then use a clear coat. Then use wax =D

Default Re: AFTER painting???

i used krylon and rustoleum, and i thought they both worked very well. a lot of my interior is painted in blue and white. and it actually looks very nice. the only peices i had a problem with were the vents, i sanded it down but it didnt want to stick to it. so i got a higher grit and then it turned out real nice.

1996 SL2
Default Re: AFTER painting???

When i repainted parts in my car i used Engine paint, lol. Chevy orange and black. I have never had a problem about it chipping. I didnt even use clear coat , although i wish i did because it would make it shine even more. It took me about 1 1/2 weeks to do just the door. Its alright for my first time using it, not perfect though. No primer or anything.I just sanded really really well and took my time painting it. The only problem i have is where the fabric is on my door the paint dye i used on it wears off kinda easy.
Its a big pic so if u click on it you can see it closer. If you got any questions let me know.

photos.

no, not really. I've taken it off and on many times. Ive also done the same to the center consol. (spell) never craked or anything.
BTW i didnt use engine paint on the fabric, i used some dye paint from autozone.
