Interior Plastics

Hey out there. The previous owner of my 84 Camaro painted the hard plastic interior parts; some of the paint is peeling but what is the best was to remove the remaining paint without harming the plastic? I'm going to use SEM dye when I re-color.
Thanks

You need to get all that old paint off the plastic. I would suggest one of those "safe" citrus based paint strippers. CLICK HERE Once you get all the old paint off, you clean the plastic with SEM soap using a gray scuff pad followed by one of their plastic /leather preps like 3835 or 38464. Then you rinse it with water. You know it's ready to re-color when water doesn't bead up on the plastic. You probably should use some of their 3986 plastic adhesion promoter also.
