Painting interior

So I wanted to change the color of my interior. At first I thought the only way to do it was I would have to buy the panels for the doors, back etc. Then I came across I guess it's some kind of spray paint for the interior of cars. Has anyone used it? Stay away from it? Thx

I used Krylon Gloss Red for my interior. It came out nice. Make sure you prep it good before you start painting.

That looks cool. But I'm talking about the side panels and stuff. I don't like my interior color too much. It's a stone light color. Like my door panels and rear seat panels.

My experience as a painter taught me to not trust anything that comes from a rattle can. It's all low quality paint. No matter the brand. They can not use proper hardeners. They have to use stuff that allows for a longer shelf life. This becomes an issue when you want to use more than water to clean.

The best paint jobs come from very good prep work.

That makes sense. I guess I just have to buy the interior piece by piece. I'm sure that's going to be pretty expensive. Have to be some stangs in a junkyard or something where I can take that stuff off then.

You can take the pieces that you want painted out of the car and into a body shop. They will quote you a price. Then it will be good paint and possibly have a warrantee.

There is even stuff they can add to the paint that makes is "more" flexible. That is if your painting panels that flex a little.

So it has been done before then? From what I can figure is this stuff is poured into a mold already that color right? Or are the pieces molded then painted? Reason why I ask is because if it's painted eventually the paint will scuff or get scratched and the paint will start coming off.

I'm not sure if OEM stuff is painted, but I have painted interior parts. They seem to have held up pretty well.

I painted some door panels on my mom's stang. Next time I'm out there, I will take a pic.

I've used plasti dip on some of my interior, but its all stuff that isn't touched a lot. Its held up fine for about a year now. But I've also painted a whole car with that stuff too with no problems.
