Mold On Interior Panels

I recently purchased a 72 GTO that has been sitting in a garage closed up for the past 15+ years. My question, is there a good way to clean the interior panels without damage and make sure all the mold is gone for good. Every panel in it to include the headliner has it.

Thanks
Mike

you may need to use bleach if the stains don't come out, great for white,dunno about other colors, you may end up dyeing it.

NO BLEACH

I would not use bleach on anything. Navy Whites, maybe. I like to use OxyClean. Get a spray bottle and mix per directions. Spray area and use SOFT tooth brush on hard areas. Mildew will be easier to remove if the panel is removed / cleaned / dry in bright shade. The tough one is the head liner. I would spring for the bucks and have a shop remove and clean it. Most cars have a felt under the headliner. The mildew will leach back if not cleaned from the felt.

old Plastic

Yea, only way to kill mold is with bleach....might want to add some water at first......Chances are that the plastic is dried out and all that wiping will blow away that grain and you will be up the creek with out a paddle.....You could get some vinyl paint and add a texture additive to it and re shoot it all...But you can't spray on dead plastic....it would have to be all sanded down to the healthy plastic before you could shoot it.....Don't forget to use plastic prep before you shoot it and a cross linking additive ...adhesive promoter.....see my site ***

DO NOT use straight bleach. Add a little to water and try it. You don't want to add much more than what is added to the water to do laundry. read the instructions on the back of the jug first. Bleach will kill the mold but if used in the wrong strength will also bleach out any cloth that you have around. I would use something like simple green or something to that effect.
