Finishing interior dash plastics for paint?

So i started to make a custom nav bezel for my 6 disc cd changer a while back. its been a slow project because i have had alot of issues with it and have since lost some motivation. recently ive been wonrking on it here and there and it will be much easier to paint the entire bezel then to just paint the section that is black in the middle.

So this brings me to my question. Is it better to try and sand all the texture on the bezel smooth or use a high build primmer in many coats and lots of sanding to get it smooth for a finish like this.



Eventually i would like to copy this interior but with Dark Khaki paint to match my jeep.

Re: Finishing interior dash plastics for paint?

sand it first. then primer then sand then prime then sand you get the idea.....

seriously, get it as smooth as possible befroe you do anything. then adhesion promoter first just a bit though. then your high build primer. for home keep going up in grit to about 1000 wet sanding perfect then color and clear go on.

Re: Finishing interior dash plastics for paint?

I like it! I've been wanting to do something similar as well. I did spray my Nev bezel and gauge cluster bezel black, but they look nothing like those above. Mine are still textured and nowhere near as glossy. That guy def did some good work or had it done professionally?

Re: Finishing interior dash plastics for paint?

the pics posted are of piano black hydrographics and clear coat. every is de-textured and smooth before the graphics are applied. then some clear protects it all. i would guess that the owner, a veterinarian on the red site, paid about a grand for what you see in that pic.

hops23 i think has a silver srt8 with a carbon hydrographics, on wheels, grill, etc. looks killer. he has ppics on this site somewjhere.

mine is all color matched by Daniel, the guy who used to do painting from here. closed up a bit ago





before i had a nav:




dont fgorget these


more





last one. i even have the shifter painted. i tried the merc leather but it didnt match in color exactly. so i had daniel paint the stock plastic one. love it...



i just ordered some paint.....im gonna give it a try myself....bought a set of cheap guns from harbor frieght, neighbor has a big compressor runs on 110 in my garage already tested that, i know how to prep and sand. color and wet sand lots of experience. NEXT UP is the top of the shifter itself. gonna smooth it down knock down the PRND smooth, gonna try it on that. will be my first non rattle can project. i did my coolant tank and srt8 grille insert with rattle cans. a few other things too. aznyway it can be done a few ways depends on the budget. and be careful with bold color, then i would do less. but my grey is so easy and everything else is already gray....

SWEET! Im excited, trying myself to move away from the rattle can because it just doesn't bring the quality of spraying on the good stuff out of a gun. Of course, this is all based on what Ive seen haha, excited to see your results!

Re: Finishing interior dash plastics for paint?

I prepped all mine by washing, sanding, adhesion promoter(bulldog for plastics) and then high build primer. I then had a shop paint them the same way they paint the exterior. They still look new almost 4 yrs later.......
