    Colour coding interior trim.

    Post  ShadowSei on Tue Mar 15, 2011 9:11 pm

    I will go step by step with how i completed this task of colour coding the interior parts.
    Items needed to prep the bits:
    - PURPLE OR GOLD SCOTCH PAD (VERY/SUPER FINE)
    - PANEL WIPE (PANEL DEGREASER)
    - PLASTIC PRIMER
    - COMPRESSOR AND SPRAY GUN (IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY AN AEROSOL WOULD WORK... MAYBE?)
    Other item's you may want to get hold of:
    - 1500 w/d - 2000 w/d - Fine abrasive polish - High Definition Wax

    STEP BY STEP GUIDE

    - Start by scotching the plastic trim down all over and make sure to cover everywhere you want the paint to stick.
    - Tape them down so they do not move when spraying them.
    - Panel wipe them all over making sure there is no dirt on all the bits. (There are two types of dirt water-based and oil-based but panel wipe will only remove the oil-based dirt, so if you wish you can wash them in warm water before this step. NO SOAP!)
    - Plastic prime all over only dusting it on you only need it to go tacky not to drown it in the primer.
    - Wait 10mins before paint
    - Paint it with your base coat (1 dust coat, followed by 2 full coats)
    - Allow to dry shouldn't be long 5-10mins
    - Time to lacquer them now (1 dust coat, followed by 2-3 full coats)
    - Allow to dry off in the booth oven for 45mins on a temp of 72°C or in case you don't have a booth oven leave it overnight in a warm room (24°c).

    Once its dry and cooled off make sure there are no dirt nibs on the painted surfaces, if there is then you might want to get hold of some 1500-2000 silica carbide (Wet&dry sandpaper) Nib out the dirt and rub with some fine abrasive polish to bring back the shine.

    Finally finish with a high definition wax to give a Great Shine.

    Nice guide, and even nicer job! I would love all mine in a lime green/flip black! Paint will be expensive though I assume? (flip)

    depends really you will need to find the paint or a company that will mix that variation and then see how much. if i was to do it i would do it gloss black then hit it with a kiwi green candy lacquer but you still wouldn't get the flip effect. maybe a black with green metal flake in it could be an option to you?

    that sounds nice....again, expensive? Thinking about it, I think just gloss black would be better...If I had all fibreglass in my car, and made it better looking, then yes I would like to spray it a crazy colour...but as the interior is standard, I would like black I think. Wait until I get paid (31st) and I'll book the parts in with you Smile
