what kind of paint did you use for your interior panels? and did you sand and prime them first?

No did not sand or prime... but watch the radio cover... sprayed it, then it started to crackle (probably should have sanded it first, didnt know that there was a coating on it..).. had to scrape it off and start over.... the paint was Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric.

yea my covering to the radio bezel is chipped in a few areas (like quarter size pieces fell off), so it should be really easy for me to peel the rest off and paint it

just curious, how much is a can of this paint?

Take it from someone who has painted their whole interior (eveything plastic got painted)
Prep is a must , When I painted my interior I probally spent over 50 alone in prep suplies
2 cans accetone , 3 sleaves each of 220 , 400 grit , 120 grit sanding sponges , rags , 2 rolls masking tape .
And using adhesion promoter is a must , it keeps it from pealing and cracking later on down the line . And u also have to shoot a couple layers of clear ot it will come off anytime something hits it .

As far as the 40-60 mod I used a dremal tool , I cant stress this enough take your time and plan pull off the cover , and look at the passenger seat for where you need to cut the foam , heat up a wire coat hanger it will cut and form the foam after that then you can see where to cut the seat pan . Then put your cover back one and cut and resew it . Mine looks completly stock I had almost 8 inches of space inbetween seats before I built my console .

This is what my interior looks like after about 20 hours of work and around 200 bucks of suplies including the cost of the dremal tool , paint and other stuff . plus 40 for seat covers . Ps I used 3 cans of black duplicolor vynil paint for dash and rear panel . 4 cans of krylon ultra flat Od green for all the plastic parts . 2 cans of krylon clear laquer .


You can see how the seat is contoured like a factory bucket , and the width of the console as a referance .

You can see the color scehme in this one with the black and Od trim .

Heres an idea of what kind of prep your looking at , It was still quicker to tape off everything than to take the dash out .

heres all the panels out while I pain the inside .

I did the 60/40 to 40/40 mod about 3 years ago and added the Explorer full length center console, but I have recently redone part of the console to house my CB.

It has been done, you just have to cut out part of the forward cubby and make a shifter boot that will some how attach. There is a pic. floating around somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

I think rwezing did it but he had to custom form the console for it to fit. Maybe that was the transfer case stick though...

Older pic so a few things have changed since I took the pic. IMO, less is more when painting interior parts. The dimple seen on the drivers seat is not a sloppy sew job from when I did the 40/40 conversion, it's from my wedging my 19C between the seat and console.

My truck is a bit older(1994) but same idea. 60/40 to 40/40 using a razor blade for the foam and a sawzall for the seat frame. Put in the $30 coinsole from walmart and a set of seat covers from advance auto that were $25ea.
Painted the interior with black duplicolor paint and vinyl(carpet and some trim) and the red is color matched duplicolor.(elec current red)
