PROJECT: New Interior / COST: $25

Well I have been giving lots of attention to my vair lately! I decided the interior would get some next...so needed the following:

1. New carpet
2. New back seat
3. New door panels
4. New top boot
5. New dash cover / glovebox

Weekend project, pics below...











2 cans of flex paint, 1 can semigloss for doors and dash. All painted INSIDE the vehicle...removed nothing! smiling smiley Stuff was great for fade spots on my carpet too! I even did the gas/brake pedals with it. Colorcoat was about $10/can and $5 for the semigloss black. This stuff works great!!!

Looks great!
I generally have no luck with paints, can you check back in 6 and 12 months from now?

I sure will! I was amazed at how this stuff went on the vinyl...still kept it pliable - could not even tell it was painted...I expected it to feel a little brittle...

It is supposed to be fade resistant too...so if I get a year or two before having to do it again...well worth it! Also, my car is pretty much only driven top-down, sun-up, so this will be a good test! smiling smiley

I use the Krylon "plastic fusion" paint on my white seats and stuff in the vert, it works great...and with the problems with trying to keep white seats clean, I just respray them every summer...

I like SEM stuff b/c it is widely used in the auto industry...though I have heard good things about Krylon too...wonder if you can use that on carpets as well? I mean my carpet had some green spots from sun-fade and were gone with the first coat of this tuff...nice and black again!

I used something like that in 66 for my Sprite seats. Only problem was with scratches. People getting in with keys, or stepping over the door and scratching the seats with their shoes.

That makes sense...I didn't have to do the front seats b/c they were newly done from Clarks and almost never have anyone in the back so not too worried there either...PLUS everything was black to begin with so I expect the results to be optimal b/c that was the case...SEM also has a multitude of colors that can be shot out of the gun too...so who knows what kind of trouble I could get into over the winter... smiling smiley

My front seats were blue origionally...Krylon plastic fusion turned em white pretty decently for almost no cost...

Bob,

It wasn't difficult for Rafman to get that angle in a Rampside!

I've heard good things about that and other "flexible" paints. I've seen the results years after initial and only application and they still look good.
