Well I have decided to do some interior work on the 'TOY' I picked up awhile back. I am going to get rid of some of that awful RED interior. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Does anyone have any tips on painting plastic? I remember last time I tried this that the paint had a tendincy to peel after awhile.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] What type of paint is best to use? Also what prep work? My eye's thank you!
go to the auto-paint store, they make a special vinyl and trim paint in a spray can. Its thinner than regular spray paint, and wont fill in the texture. As for the peeling part, just clean everything real good, if its interior parts chances are they are coated with Armor-All.Try using alcohol instead of paint thinner, which will "melt" some trim parts.
You know that I painted the rear seat of my first 5 to change the tan color to black.
Used the special vinyl paint and you couldn't ever tell. Looked great even after several years of abuse.
