parts prep is everything. i was very careful and i cleaned everything, but i still have cracking/chipping issues. also fading issues on parts that get a lot of wear (stereo faceplate). it looks cool for awhile, but then it gets crusty. make sure you are anal about cleaning any parts you intend to paint. even oils from your hands will screw up a nice paint job...

I recommend Interior Dye. Paint will crack and look like $h!t in a month.

2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: painting the interior

the amount of posts affects the title under your Sig.

you will need paint for plastic surfaces. vinyl such as the dash pad must be dyed becaus paint will just crack.

most custom jobs that involve changing the colour of the interior. are acheved by recovering vinyl and clothe parts with the material in the colour desired. and refabricating many plastic parts in fiberglass witch is easyer to paint and gives better results.

if you do paint be prepaired to touch up and redo lots of areas that see lots of contact in the normal use of your car.

and if you use a lot of white you will go insane trying to keep it looking good.

If it isn't broken.........Your not trying hard enough

I had a friend that used spray paint. He took off the stuff on his car he wanted to paint and sprayed it. He used blue. It made his Corolla look different.

What ive done in previous car is used Duplicolor Vynl spray paints, there are agents, compunds in it that allows the paint to "flex". But it WILL scratch mind you. Duplicolor also has prep wipes that remove grease. And as S3aturnR stated even fingerprints will ruin those spots. So preping is key.

Have purchased viynl dye from automotive paint shops. Turned a pukie green interior black, with very good success. Colors are typically what's generally found in most cars - grey, tan, black, etc. Not sure if you'll find colors like blue/white, but worth checking your local auto paint store to see what they can recommend.

It is not a good idea to paint interior parts.But if you must PREP. is everthing.Laquer thiner will strip any wax oils.Be sure to wear gloves.I would use a scuff pad after wiping.Then a tackrag,then spray paint,untill covered

The kid who owned our 2002 SC2 painted several interior parts red to match the body. It's over 6 years old - and still looks ok. No cracking or peeling.

No idea what kind of paint.
