need help painting inside of truck

i was putting on the string light around my raido bezel and i got some super glue all over the bottom of the dash and around the cig lighter. little section. i tryed to use goop off but i was too late. is there a way i can just paint that little section of my interior. would the paint match. would i have to call dealer to get a exact match for the interior. i have a 96 ranger. all inside was green not grey. i can use any solutions thanks

Yea, you can take the radio bezel off, sand down the glue you got stuck on there, continue to sand off the plastic, rubber coating. Then prime, and paint.

You can find close color matched paint at your local autoparts store

Do some searches for interior painting or radio bezel and some how-to's and discussions will come up and now to paint your bezel.

hmm that might be a hard color to find... try a ford parts store for a colormatched spray, and if that doesnt work, SEM has a wide variety of colors; you might be able to find one that matches pretty closely.

still like new, and its been just over a year ;o)



i maintain it by dusting weekly with a black magic dust magnet cloth, then occasionally i spray it with meguiars quick interior detail (leaves no nasty oily residue) and wipe it down.
