Re painting interior

Ok. I want to hear the best idea besides a body shop because I can do it myself. My 88 interior is in need of a refreshing I am so sick of the red. To be honest, I hate it. I want to go with black but the last interiors I have seen done flaked badly. What do u guys use to clean the plastic? Do you prime first? What brand/type of paint do you use? My body and paint experience is limited to the outside of the car. Lol. Also I need to dye/paint the dash and door panels and headliner for now until i can get a new one. What should I use?

I would use a simple degreaser like Simple Green, some very fine grit sandpaper to rough up the vinyl. Definitely prime it, and I know they sell specific paint for vinyl, as well as fabric. I resprayed my carpet, sun visors and fabric insert on my vert, looks so much better now.

Definitely will try that. I won't have much problem cleaning I think. I don't use armor all or any greasy cleaners on the interior just cleaner wipes. And even sand the vinyl? Like with 320? Or 400 maybe? And I saw some spray dye at Walmart. Should work I think cassis for vinyl. What about the dash? Paint or dye?

At least 1000. You could get away with out it. The primer will stick better to a roughed up surface. Buy the stuff specifically made for vinyl, fabric, interior, etc. I didn't take before and after pics on my stuff. Just take your time and prep and tape everything off.
