I thought I'd start another thread on my interior build since I'm using another cool product. From my Monstaliner thread THATSaBIGone503 gave me a great tip on faded interior paneling. Duplicolor vinyl and fabric is simply "da chit". The best easiest spray paint I have ever used. No runs at all, can paint just about over everything. The bronco door panel has a metal strip, abs plastic everywhere, carpet, some type of hair type thing where the door handle is, screen, the same spongy dash material on the arm rest, and some type of quilt type stuff between screen and abs plastic. I simply sprayed all those surfaces on two passes and the finish is absolutely flawless! it will be a week or so before i get a finished pic on the whole bronco, but couldn't wait to post these up.

I'm curious about its durability.
I stumbled on this, looks faded after 8 months, but then again it is a darker color. Either way I'm sure it will be a snap to touch up. Also caught this from the link-"what you can see is dust prints, he works as a plasterer."


i painted my arm rests once with plastic spray paint on a 70's ford. those were so sticky during those hot summer days
I'll let you know when I get a chance to test it. I did put the pieces in the hot sunshine today to dry them before second coat. It doesn't seam to be sticky at all. The finish seams just like the ABS plastic itself. You also can't tell the carpet is painted, appears just like new carpet. :shrug

That stuff is really easy to touch-up, I've done a few Bronco's so far... Changing them from beige to black so people would not junk them-

I wonder if it comes in the fard camel/sand/tan/whatever color the tan interior is called. I could really use this stuff!

Finished up, some shots on the back. First shot is a painted trim piece against the unpainted back panel. The rest of pics are of finished panels.

That looks really good!

Have you tried to scratch it yet?

Yes, it is pretty darn scratch resistant. It is very hard to tell the difference between this painted surface and the abs plastic itself. It is very matte which in my opinion makes it very realistic to factory.

I should have read your post first as far as prep goes. For prep I did two solvent wipes with MEK. So when I sprayed the first coat some "black: spotting came through, I'm assuming the solvent in the paint suspended some surface contamination in the paint that perhaps the MEK wipe missed. However, when it dried I just sprayed over the black spots with a second and third coat and the black went away. I'm sure there was a better way to do it, but I am a totally spray paint rookie. This stuff is very easy to use and very forgiving, it makes a paint idiot look like a pro.

Too soon really, other then so far I have no regrets it looks awesome. As someone said, it makes the rug stiff so I'm glad I didn't spray the seats too. Have some Wet Okole's on the way! I have the bronco parked outside 24/7, and the surface still stays perfectly matte, no issues there at all. I don't know if I said this or not, but if you spray this inside the Bronco, make sure you cover everything as it leaves a mist that gets around. It almost looks like dust, but anyhow it wiped right up off the Monstaliner. It still was easier then taking out all that back trim. Don't spend too much time back there either cause of fumes.:shocked
