Talking Painting Interior trim

I have been having a very difficult time finding Tan colored interior plastic Molding for my 76 Monte Carlo. I have been able to find dark color molding and have a question about painting the parts.

When you are painting Dark interior plastic parts should I use a primer ? I will be spray painting all the interior plastic pieces so the sun faded and dark replacement pieces match. Thanks for the help.

Joe

Joe, are the peices metal or are they plastic? If they are metal yes, by all means use primer. If they are plastic DON'T use paint, use interior dye for the plastic peices. Some paints will never dry and some will leave your interior smelling like paint no matter what you do. Go buy some interior dye and follow the directions.

Halloweenking,


Can you dye dark plastic parts a lighter color ? For instance dyeing dark blue molding tan.

joe, yes you can, the dye is a pentrating dye and it works pretty good, from light to dark or dark to light colors.

i've also used the dye, just make sure they're VERY clean before dyeing.

If you do use spray paint, stick with Krylon. I have used this when doing signs and it adheres to vinyl better than ANY other rattle can product. Glad to see you plan on doing it all to match

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!
