    its not very jdm to paint your interior pieces. buy new interior pieces from a junk yard and pay and learn from your idiotic, moronic, retarded choice to paint them.

    werd, i've been there before. 99.9% of car guys do something they regret and look back knowing it was dumb. i've been there to. if you strip it, it will have a funny color to it and you will have to prep it and repaint it. i just went and bought new plastic. Might cost $25 or so, but it's better than doing the work to repaint it.

    yup to bad u riced her out...if u use laquer thinner to get it off it will def strip the paint but it will dull all ur plastic and make it look all shitty. So basiclly as stated above your best bet is to learn fromur ricerass mistake buy new intereior panels....oh ya i got some from a 91 si if u are interested in buying them :mrgreen:

    why dont you just scuff up what paint is on there, clean it with some thinner, and just spray the same type of paint you used in a normal color?

    yeah, my vote is to repaint the plastic parts. The carpet......I think thats going to have to be replaced. You could try dying it back to black but I have my doubts from seeing the pics you posted.

    well....im very short on cash at the moment and was thinkin.....if i stripp the paint all off.....i was thinking about repainting it with duplicolor black vinyl paint or even that good sem stuff that paint shops sell.....i also wanna do it because the 88-89 crx i belive had the grey tops on the dash and door panels....i wouldnt worry about the back panels because there already out....what do you guys think on the sem respray using just black paint?

    I had to repaint mine, but looking back, a can of Aircraft Paint Remover or Gasket Remover might work.
    Wipe fast or it'll eat the plastic.

    Aircraft remover will definitely start eating through the plastic. Be careful.
