Interior

I'm repainting black my instrument cluster, dash trim, door panels, and back panel on my 68 for the first time. Any suggestions?

Depends on what you're looking to do.. if u want a cheap easy way to.do it I have used krylon semi flat black which was the best finish and closest to stock..and looks really good.. i had that in mine for the longest until i started restoring it. Got lots of compliments on the interior..unless you're looking to restore it then you should look for the original paint code ..

I used it for the metal part of the dash.. the instrument cluster all the plastic dash trim.. the steering column metal parts of.the doors and the metal rear interior panels... just make.sure its the semi- flat black.. not gloss or flat... has to be krylon.. I tried a lot of other brands of paint they didn't look good..

it all starts with good products, then good prep work, then the paint process~ gotta do it all good to end up with a good result.

Just happened to see this thread when I was about to repaint the heater box in my 66, and I went with the krylon. You can't tell it only cost a few bucks to refinish! Thanks...

Your box must have been in bad shape to repaint!

Yeah it was not in good shape at all... The fresh air door was broke so we had to weld the top hinge back to the door... But after some time and effort it looks like new!

What's up Ned, I read you might want to black out the plastic in your interior. I just did it to my 67 fastback. I think it looks great! Almost done with my interior, new door panels, new dash, I even blacked out the center console. I changed my mind and took off the original center nipples on the gauges and put some nice brushed metal ones that I found. Tell me what you think....

I think I am going to do all but the stainless pieces. I like it all black, but my favorite color is chrome... I'll just polish them well, then I am changing out the gauges to give me a tach too...
Aftermarket looks good to me, as I'm not going for authentic, but hotrod style...
