I was wondering what is the best paint to use for my interior. I have no clue where to start. I saw someones interior in white which is what i want to do. COuld you guys help me out with good paint and prices to get it. I dont want to use regulr paint cause i believe it will come off easily
you must not know too much about paint then. Regular paint is exactly what you use. If you want special paint go to abody shop and have them do it for you. If you want to do it yourself then you go buy some good ol Krylon or Rustoleum <sp?>.
i used Rustoleum it takes forever to dry but it never chipped or got discolored.
READ THE DIRECTIONS ON DRY TIME
If you never used spray paint practice on everything but your car parts. trust me. If you mess up your interior its done it doesn’t rub off. Its paint and now your interior is ugly. It cost $$$$ to get new pieces from the junk yard.
suggestion don’t do it. if you don’t do it right it will be ugly and people like me notice and make fun of you.
in ads on jcw in super street they have interior paint and its like 17$. Is vinyl paint just regular ol paint. thats what someone else used on there interior and they said it was better than regular paint
Use these steps I used and your interior will look as good as mine. I learned this through trail and error.
Fisrt clean objects so that they are not dusty and/or dirty then go to a store like auto zone and buy some paint adhesive ( its called “Bond Aid” its for plastics and bumpers) Spray this stuff on the object u wish to paint. 3 coats should be good, and let this dry (about 10 min)
Second buy some spray paint of the color u desire to do the interior. I bought my paint from K-mart (its less expensive). I really, really, really recommend it to be flat paint. 3 to 4 coats should be good, but another extra coat wont hurt. Make sure the first 2 coats are very light so that it doesnt run. Let that dry for about 15 to 20 min.
Finally buy some clear coat in a spray can and give the painted object about 3 coats of this. Make sure they are light so it does not run. once this is done leave them out of the car for about 3 days, out of direct sun light and somewhere where they can dry safely.
Thats it after that, when they are dry put them back in. They will loook awsome!!!
hopefull I didnt leave out anything and good luck!
just go to your local performance store and they’l have tons of different paint to choose from. Theres specail interior paint u acan get for cars.
depends on what u want to paint. for me, i cleaned up the area with spray goof-off, then clean it off with a clean cloth. then used a vinyl spray paint, (white), for door panels, and other things that is vinyl normally.
Ummm from experience the vinyl stuff doesnt work at all. It chips really bad in a martter of days.:mad:
really? did u do it correctly? prepping it a bit, then spraying it on evenly. i’ve had mine since about uhh… not sure, but have had it for about 3 months. no chips, no wear marks. it’s in good condition.
what did u use vinyl paint on?
well I used it on all my interior paneling. It staruted to chip on the middle councel area and then everywhere else. But after it chipped it really got bad and I was able to just peal it of like school glue peals of someones hands. I was mad all that time and money gone to waste, I think my methed works best.
(can u scratch the your interior paint with a key and it doesnt chip and/or scrap)
i havent tried to scratch it with a key to chip it or damage it. i dont wanna damage it. hehee. umm, that’s weird. mine is like… on there, and hasnt chipped or n e thing. when i used normal paint on the panels, it kept getting very very sticky, dirty, and kept attracting lint. so i used goof off, and removed the paint. humm… i dunno…

The Reason that happened is becuses you did not sand it.
heres how to do it if you want your interior “bling blingin” like mine. Lol I had to say that
its as easy as this
- rub down with water to get dust off from sanding
then your **** will look as good as this…
reading this is funny people did it one way and think its the best
i have used 3 diffrent kinds of paint and they all had there own problems, i used vinyl dye and have had no problems
i used a very strong de-greaser, you need this to remove the armerall(DEVIL) then get a vinyl adhesive if you want i didn’t
then spray VERY light coats of VHT vinyl dye or some other good dye. it will take about 5 THIN coats, you can clear coat if with a FLEXABLE clear coat if you want, but if you use just any old clear coat it will chip and crack over time!
this will keep the vinyl looking like vinyl. I used this on both the vinyl and plastic and it will not chip. If i can get a cam i’ll get some pics for you to see
DON’T use normal paint you will regret doing this!!! i had to get all new interior because of that
if it is costing you $17 for vinyl dye you are paying too much i can get it for about $13 tax included
strong de-greaser that i used was the spray type of goof off. it works very good.
Don’t paint the inside of your car man…
It’ll look ghey!
Unless it’s exposed metal then do it to that…
i know everyone has their opinion, but please hold comments like yours to yourself. expecially since u just registered 2 days ago. you shouldn’t make comments like that in threads. some of us put in alot of hard work to get them how they are.
well i j ust got back from autozone and i purchased duplicolor vinyl paint. I alsoo bought duplicolor adhesion promoter its a clear primer and then i bought some dupli color clear enamel coat for after i’m done painting. I got semi flat white cause i didnt want glossy white but i also didnt want a dull white so hopefully it woks out. I’ll post p[ics of it when i’m done since i still have to send in pics of my car for full registration. I was gonna do like 7 pieces so lets see whatr you guys think about the pieces i’m doin. The dash trim, the trim under dash for drivers side and under glove box on passenger side. e-brake, stick shift area piece. You guys think i should rip off carpet on door panels and do them white also there would be 4 i have to do.
WHAT if your gonna do everything go all out, take teh car off the raod for a week and take tehw hoel ****ing itnerior out…buy a hanes auto manual or soemthign it’ll shwo you how to rip out every single peice…
don’t go half ass’d people!
