    Has anyone ever used that interior spray paint stuff? Just out of curiosity. I have a friend who used some, and it kept peeling off, but then again he was kinda retarded, and may not have used it right, just wanted to get people's experience with it.

    well ive never seen any that would stay to well, but the only kinds that i have used that never came off chipped or anything was, 500 temp engine paint lol, its hell to put on because its only made for metal. and it takes a long time because you have to build up lots of very very then layers. but if you take your time it will be there forever.

    Just curious. I hate my dark gray interior, I'd like it to be black, but I really don't want to pay for new black everything and I don't want to paint it then have it look worse than it did before lol

    i just did an entire 65 mustang interior. i'd use a good cleaner of some kind, i used rubbing alcohol, then ruff it up with a scuff pad, clean it again and you shouldnt have any problems getting just about any paint to adhere

    I have painted some of my interior in the past and the "for plastic/vinyl paint" sucked. I repainted it with a semi gloss rustoleum and it looks pretty good. I have had it on the parts for two years at least and it hasn't peeled or chipped. The door panel is what I painted.

    That is one of the nicest painted interiors I have seen.

    Its all in the prep work when you paint. Paint won't stick to grease, dirt, dust, armorall, etc. I would uses denatured alcohol or paint thinner (mineral spirits) to clean it with. I know people have had good luck cleaning with scrub pads and simplegreen.

    Like the other guys said, clean it with some alcohol, and use a scuff pad and take the shine off it. After you've put your fingers all over it sanding, wipe it down again. If it's plastic, I've learned that Krylon Fusion works very well. If it's the vinyl you are wanting to paint, it will be a little more complicated, but you can get it done.
    we painted the interior in my friend's Escort show car a few years ago. Sand, 2k primer, repeat 3 times, and a slick layer of paint with a spray gun- it looked like painted fiberglass interior. It was really shiny. He got 1st place. :)
