Great advise... maybe you could invest the $ you'd spend on paint, on a good interior cleaner! (armor all?)ryan_long_01 said:Please don't. Even if you think it looks good at first (which it doesn't, frankly), some pieces are going to chip and flake or crack eventually, and it's going to look like crap with black showing through. Eventually, you're going to have a mess on your hands and at some point you WILL wish that you never painted it, especially when you're trying to figure out how to get the paint off, painting over it with black, and probably buying some expensive new interior parts.
To answer your question, though, I'd either get a paint that's made for painting interiors (they are advertised in car magazines sometimes) or Krylon Fusion, made to bond to plastics. But make sure that you seriously think about whether you want to ruin your interior or not.
I'm sure it's possible to do a good job, but most of the ones you see end up looking pretty rough a year or so down the road...it's just going to get roughed up and chipped and stuff from normal use.babyblucrx said:ouch. does it really turn out that bad. what about just the dash. is it the same with that? I want to make the interior more me, y'know. the stock light-crap-blue has gotten old.
But can you do that with the vin on there?coldtotouch said:I have seen MANY interior painted CRX's... seriously dude none of them that i'd seen looked all that good... to be honest just swapping a blue for black dash would be the best bet... a nice clean dash looks realllly good!
I'm sure there is a legitimate way to do it... it might involve some paperwork? potentially??? i'm not sure... sorryDodo said:But can you do that with the vin on there?coldtotouch said:I have seen MANY interior painted CRX's... seriously dude none of them that i'd seen looked all that good... to be honest just swapping a blue for black dash would be the best bet... a nice clean dash looks realllly good!
yes exactly. i think that looks really good. what do you mean by dye instead of paint. I've never heard of that method, how does it work.Dodo said:so something like this,
All i can say is dont use paint, us a dye. It looks better and will last longer.
Hey Thanks. thats a good link. I'm pretty sure i can pull this off and make it look good. might pick up some oddend interior part from a junkyard to practice on. I'll be sure to post pics when i'm finished. thanks everyoneDodo said:I found a good site that will tell you how to paint the dash if thats what you end up wanting to do.
