Interiors

I recently read an article where the magazine was converting a scarlet interior fox to black. The article listed the materials used with pn from late model resto or one of those shops. The pictures at the end looked kinda crappy though. I'm looking to change from my red interior to a black or grey, but I want to make sure it looks good. Anyone have good results with dying or spray paint interior pieces. The article guys dyed everything except dash and center console. They sprayed those with exterior auto paint. Just looking for feedback.

I've dyed my interior before. It looked good, but after a few years in the Florida sun, it got a little faded. But a re dye fixed it. Just clean the surface good before hand, and you'll be fine.

I've also heard to use lacquer thinner after you clean the surface. It's said to open the pores of the plastic so the pain actually adheres better. If you do use it, they say it turns the plastic a whitish color. You'll think you've ruined it but it's normal. I'm gonna try this with my current project and see how it comes out.

Personally I've died an interior black before with the same method mentioned above, clean, wipe with alcohol, then spray.... Came out really good.

Yeah I'd recommend testing it out on a small section not really noticeable at first and see how you like the results.

Thanks for the responses. What about fixing the the cracked mounting points on the dash, and what can I do to restore the gauge area to like new cond. I pulled the dash apart to do heater core and cleaned the plastic really well, but after it dried, it looked dusty still. How do I make it look shiny and new?

There's some stuff I had recommended to me to fix the dash... It's called rapid fix. A mustang parts place recommended it and said they use it repairing the interior and dash pieces. I used it on a piece of furniture and stuff worked awesome, next is my dash. It can be sanded and painted over also.
