Painting interior....any concern of rubbage?

Hi.

I'm planning of painting my interior parts. The part where the door opener is...my knee rests there all the time. Is there any concern of rubbing offf paint?? I plan on properly prepping it w/ primer & spraying it with Dupli-Color color matched Deep Wedgewood Blue then some clear.



Thanks!!

Shane

I would really doubt it as long as you are doing all that. you could always get real original and make a little "knee rest pad" and stick that over it with some 3m tape

I would think that as long as you put a clear over it you would be alright

ya as long as you clear it and do it right it should be fine and you also could go a couple more coats over it with the paint to give it alittle extra pertection.(did i spell that right....lol)

wait the hard plastic or the vinyl part, i believe you're referring to the hard plastic right?
i've had a lot of import buddies who paint their interiors and they prep it by cleaning it and using paint thinner(i would use Paso, you can find it anywhere its a surface prep)
now my interior isn't painted i help ppl do it but thats about it and i just notice that the hard plastic tends to stick well when using prep, prime, paint and clear but i noticed no matter what the vinyl always seems to chip, even when we use the vinyl paint, not soon, it takes time for it to happen but eventually does.
but i don't know maybe its becasue we use stuff from o reily's and autozone, maybe if you find a better product is what i'm guessing
but it should work though, just try to find the best paint for that vinyl, you know where your arm rest is and right above it and i would think it should be ok
