Painting Interior How - To
Clean part with simple green or your favorite degreaser. Scrub with a dish sponge. Rinse, dry.
(This is to get off all the armour all you've been putting on)
Scrub the part again using soapy water (dishsoap works well). Rinse. Dry
Wipe the entire part down with rubbing alcohol.
Sand part with 140 grit automotive sandpaper. I use the sandpaper sponges from 3M.
For the radio bezel, be sure to sand down the rubber coating as well. You might want to go with a coarser grit for the rubber coating, just be careful not to scratch underneath.
Use 320 then 400 grit, then 600 wetsand, to a smooth finish.
If you want you could use 1200 grit to make it a really smooth finish.
Clean (can use rubbing alcohol again)
Use Duplicolor adhesive promoter, following the directions on the can of adhesion promoter, do 2 to 3 coats. Remember to keep the adhesion promoter layers very light, or they can create runs that can screw up the finish.
Use Dupicolor bumper primer or SEM vinyl and fabric spray, several light coats.
Wait for coat to tack or dry then add another coat.
Make sure to use either of these kinds of primers because they allow flex..if you don't the paint will chip or crack when your part moves and expands while driving.
Make sure you lightly sand down any bumps or scratches before painting. Let the primer FULLY dry before starting to paint.
Paint 3 coats. Wait for paint to tack or dry before adding more coats.
Finalize with 3 coats of Duplicolor clear enamel.
Be patient and wait a couple days before installing your interior piece if its in an area that you touch often. You want to be sure the paint is completely dry.
Install and enjoy
