Default Restoring Interior Plastic Project

Well got some time to do the headliner. While waiting for it, I decided to restore some beatup plastic panels etc.




Removed headliner.

Looks good. Did you use rattle can for vehicle interiors or regular plastic rattle can

Nice work. I simply gutted it all, haha. So much more cargo room.

Looks good. What paint did you use?

Fyi, for those plastic parts that start to get brittle and fade, you can soak them in synthetic motor oil and they will regain their elasticity and loose the milky faded color

Looks great. Did you have to do any sanding, or does the paint fill in small gouges?

Do not sand any factory textured panel. You can apply that spray first, let dry then use a (sand) textured paint, then re apply final coating. For upper trim, use fine sand textured spray and for those lower black binsand trim, use medium sand texture before applying final coat. If peeled surfaces, use contact cement, apply both sides and let completely dry before sticking both together. Then apply sand texured paint by brushing it with a small tip brush along the edges.

Right LR03NJ, mine is in some need of a spruce up internally, oh and externally also, soooo, you can have free accommodation in France and do mine as well.
