My experience with krylon fusion

So I recently purchased krylon fusion flat black so I can redo my interior. I did all the normal prepping with the plastics such as wash it with a coarse pad with dawn original dish soap and allow to dry. I applied 2-3 coats of adhesion promoter dependent on which part I wanted to paint. I sprayed about 6 EXTREMELY light coats of the krylon fusion flat black per piece. I allow to sit for a day before handling. But now when I even run my fingers around it back and fourth 2 times or so I have black residue on them. Even worse, it scuffs crazy easy.. I did not apply a clear coat due to the fact that i do not want a shiny interior. Heck, for $7.50 a can it shouldn't even need it! I will post pictures tomorrow on how my interior looks. I just figured I would give everyone a warning to NOT use this brand of paint. Or at least the flat black.

You should have applied the matte clear coat. It would still look like matte black, but have the protection on it.

Most of the interior is not plastic so the fuzion of course will not adheare like it is supposed to. The duplicolor interior paint was meant for painting the interior and works infinitely better. No clear is needed.

I paint items such as the rear panels, glove box, etc.

Then what did you use to paint the rest of the stuff?

I've used the Fuzion on several projects around the house and garage, all plastics of course, and haven't had the issue you described. Perhaps it is the matte, a semi gloss will work and look much better.

I used duplicolor vinyl and fabric dye for all the vinyl around my car. And I didn't really want a shiny interior.. Idk if it would have looked right

When my buddy used it on his car it wasn't shiny. A semi gloss really, it looked fine. I wouldn't use a high gloss anything, no need to be blinded by reflections when your driving.

I may take my coarse sponge to it down the line, rough it up, apple 2-3 coats of the fusion, and than a few coats of matte clear down the line. Think that would help it out?

To get the old paint off, soak in brake fluid, it will take the paint off and leave the plastic alone. I like SEM products interior paints, they look OEM after drying. No promoter needed.

We're the stock parts even painted? I thought that they were just black or grey plastic?
