Question Interior painting question

So I've been thinking about painting some of the interior trim, specifically the the arm rests on the door panels, center console lid, radio bezel, and the hump over the speedometer, Ive read through this thread, http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...ght=Sem&page=4
,a few times but I'm still confused. I looked on sems sight and it says to clean the plastic then add the no sand stuff then the vinyl prep then the paint but doesn't say anything about an adhesion promotor.. My question is what exactly needs to be done to paint this stuff correctly...

Re: Interior painting question

you are talking about the inside well i want to paint the plastic on the outside a couple guys talk to me about this klean strip adhesion promoter which i heard was terrible... for any plastic or vinly ppg make a kit i believe its called one step but theres more than one step first you have to scrub what ever you want to paint then you spray on the product and then you paint ppg guarantees it so if you have any peeling or flaking they will cover it
My uncle has been painting for over 30 years i trust his opinion anyways now a days when they order a new bumper thats how they do it they dont sand em you suppose to put that kit on there

Re: Interior painting question

I actually did something similar in my 05' WK. The parts that are not touched very often really held up nicely, only on the parts by the switches seemed to show wear three years later. Easy touch up though. I used Duplicolor http://duplicolor.com/products/vinylFabricCoating/

I also bought some cleaning clothes to get all the armor all off the dash and that is all I used.

Re: Interior painting question

plastic varies. your not gonna want to use a paint thats not flexible unless you sand doen the dash pieces till its smooth as a babies bottom.
on your dash its gonna experience heat and movement from hitting bumps when driving. i would sand it down and sand and sand till its unbearably smooth and put a cleaning degreaser on it to get rid of grime. then put a flexible primer/adhesion promoter on it then spray it with color paint you wanna do bc its a flexible paint. it will also have more shine a better color match even if you use a black paint and will with hold paint amazingly.

spray painting it will make it look like you spent 10 mins and if you ever try to resell it no one will want to buy something like that.

Re: Interior painting question

Take a look at the thread I put together when I did my dash project. Details are all listed. If you do have anyquestions, feel free to PM me. It is quite the task to complete this project. Good Luck!

Customizing Dash of my 06 WK

There are also progress pics in the thread as well.

It wasn't too bad. Did it all over a weekend. The top part of the dash is held on by way too many screws, so you just have to locate them, do some test pulling to see where it is still snagging and the remove it. Just be patient!

Then just make sure to really clean the heck out of the dash pieces to be painted as any residue on them will make it chip and or bubble.

Good luck! Post pictures!
