Interior painting materials?

I'm going to have to paint parts and pieces in my interior, and wonder what I should use, prep materials and paint.

The dash sheetmetal will be painted, but I'm not sure I want to paint it body colour (black cherry-ish) and I'm also not sure I want it GLOSSY.
I have heard a semi gloss called "Sem" or something that sounds like "Sem" is what I should be looking at. I can't find it?

I have to paint my rollcage as well, any tips on prep or paint?

I looked through old threads, but couldn't find what I need...?
Thanks!

SEM sells many paint additives, flex agents, gloss additives and flatteners. The flattners are what are added to interior colors. SEM or other brands are available at well stocked auto paint supply stores.

As for roll bar, I usually grind and smooth off all the Mig beads and other imperfections then scuff down with 220 paper and then grease and wax remover, metal prep and prime/seal with a good non sanding sealer.

Look for S.E.M. Trim Black. It comes in a rattle can and bigger sizes for spray guns. I don't know how it would hold up in an interior though with oily finger prints and the like.... You may be better off to spray it with a regular topcoat and then shoot on a mat clear like PPG's 260/dx61.
To prep round stock like your roll bar I use the foam sanding blocks or Scotch-Brite. Wraps right around the tube and really shortens up the sanding time...

I can scotch brite for the prep, but I can't touch the welds, it's a 7.50 legal cage!

So, SEM is aded to paint to cut down on the shine? It's a flattener?

I can't wait to try to paint the cage, there is so little room around the bars in places. I guess an airbrush and a whole lotta patience...?
Thanks guys!

The S.E.M. Trim Black is a paint. You can spray it right out of the can... It's used for blacking out.... trim.
Check it out here... http://www.semproducts.com/sempages/semtrimpaint.html

Form my website:

Dash and garnish painting, (leather look) : You can go to your local auto paint or upholstery supply store and get the cans of SEM vinyl and plastic spray paint ( The color you want to do the interior with ) and paint the dash and garnish moldings with this ( you can also have it mixed ). " It works great." Then the upholster can match the leather to the dash and garnish moldings. This way the dash and moldings look just like the leather, clean and neat!
