Interior Upgrades

After spending a while looking for a way to inexpensively upgrade my interior, I was disappointed in finding lost of the dash kits were cheaply made and in my opinion, not worth buying. So I gave up until I finally got the idea to paint all the hard plastic pieces. I have a 2012 White Convertible and found the factory performance white and went to it. Honest Opinions? Attachment 191377

Also id love to see what y'all guys have done to the interior for some more ideas.

Looks cool, get some close ups. Anything can look good painted from far away.

+1 I think it looks pretty sweet. Some closeups would help

Looks great! My only opinion is that those doors will look plain with just the bezel and the partial arm rest painted. Maybe get the "leather" panel stitched with white as well? Not sure

I agree with you. I might pull out the plastic around the handles and I am doing the area around the lock pins so maybe it won't be so plain but I feel like it would be too much to do the whole door like you're saying

Dang thats not bad at all! Ling up where you got paint ordered or let me know if you would. Did you spray it with spray cans? Also, if you can give little insite to how you got off the passanger airbag section without issue I would apreciate

Ok so I got all my paint at auto zone. They have Duplicolor Perfect match paint and it is spray. They have all the ford factory colors. So I got paint the clear Duplicolor primer and then the Duplicolor clear lacquer You will also need 1500 and 2000 grit sandpaper. So you wet sand all the parts you are painting with the 1500 and then wipe down with rubbing alcohol. You then do 3 coats of primer with 3 minutes between coats. Then 4 coats of paint with 10 minutes between coats and then 2 coats of lacquer with 5 minutes between coats and let it dry for an hour. Then after that you wet sand it with 2000 and then use polishing compound Click image for larger version

After that it's ready to go back in.

As to getting the airbag out, it is by far the hardest part to remove because everything else is extremely easy. First you take off the glove box by removing the 4 screws underneath the glove box. Second you will look up under the dash directly behind the panel and will see a black box. There are 4 outer screw that you remove and the box should drop down. Then you will see the bracket the box was on and it has 2 screw to remove. Once they are removed you should be able o use a flathead and unclip the panel and push the panel out from underneath with the airbag attached. I just set the airbag down into a box leaving the panel above it and then painted and put it back in. Not too hard if you know what to look for. Hope this helps

Looks nice.. I think u should continue with the white on ur seats. Not the whole thing though just the middle where u sit and the back. Same with the back seats that would look real sharp.

Agreed!

It's the right amount of white to compliment the black dash. Great Job OP!!

I actually did the same technique on my mirror covers and they look great. So I saved $200 by just doing it my self

I am trying to decide on whether I should wait until I get a touchscreen nav and do it then or just do it soon, and then just paint the doubledin mount
when I get the radio.

It's really not too bad and it was pretty fun to take a day and just fool around with the car and it really does change the look and make it stand out

Looks great - very nice paintjob. I thought the vinyl wraps were the only viable option, but now you've got me looking into paint schemes.
