Spray painting interior parts, will it work?

Just an idea here.. i know alot of people buy an interior kit but will it work if i just buy spray paint and spray the a/c knobs and the speaker grill on the door and maybe some other stuff. i want to take the parts out and spray them outside of the car of course but will that work? cause i dont see many people doing that. Thanks.

They make paints specificly for interior trim. That would probably work best. I saw a decent selection of it when I was at NAPA the other day.

when you do this make sure you get all the oil from your fingers off the knobs. and also make sure the paint is for plastic.

A couple of companies sell the adhesion promoter which I believe is just a acetone based paint that roughs up the surface and such. But it might be a good idea with interior surfaces.

There is also a new paint out (I think Krylon makes it) that is specifically for plastic. I purchased a can of Gloss Black at Wal*Mart a month ago and it worked like a charm. There was no orange peel at all on the plastic item that I painted. Needed no primer, either.

I was thinking of using the stone-fleck stuff from plastikote...but I would think that the painted parts would be prone to scratching....???

Fleck-Stone used to come with a can of clear coat. I'm not certain if it still does, but you can always purchase one seperately. What do you plan on painting with that stuff?

i recomend a light scuffing with really fine sandpaper before using, only because of things like armoral that will make your paint crack and run. good luck

okay i know all about this crap.. i have owned many a rice burner... first if it is plastic you dont ever want to use paint thinner because it will eat through it... if you want it to look good and last for a long time you need to do it in a couple of steps.
#1 sand the piece.. with a fine grit sandpaper...
#2 use a primer...seriously..it makes it sooooo much better
#3 paint it very lightly each time you spray let it sit for 30 minutes and then do another coat... 3 coats is what i always use...
#4 do the same thing with clear coat.... 2 coats..
then let dry for about 24 hours...
oh and dont forget to sand the primer... with even smoother sandpaper..

any questions...?

It will work but I would get a clear coat so that it takes more beating...plus try to get use to the smell for many months...other than that use a clear that doesn't get cloudy without a heat activation.

ALSO make sure parts are clean (carefully wipe area down with Rubbing Alcohol, sand wipe any dirt dust off...let dry...prime...paint...clear coat...all allowing each coat to dry properly and spraying evenly of course...Takes time to do right not a 1 day job...Remember clear may seam hard after an hour or so (even other paints) but once you start messing with the part/s you will start to marr them up with finger prints etc...Thus waiting for each coat to dry it's estimated times for proper curing...Best of luck if you proceed,

Yeah, the more time you put into prepping the pieces, the better they turn out. I sprayed mine about 4 years ago and have had no troubles. You don't need the special plastic paint, they just jack up the cost so you'll buy it thinking it's something special. Any high quality spray paint will work fine. I used Dupli Color so i knew it matched perfectly to the body color.

Yeah krylon fusion is great. I haven't done it but know of those who have and it turned out better than we thought.
