Great thread! great work. Im also doing interior work which is how I found the thread lol. I am having issues figuring out how I should take care of the beige plastic pieces (like the seatbelt arms and such) I am now thinking of painting it like you did but not sure on how well it would hold up since some parts are high traffic rubbing areas.

As for your visors. Mine are easier to do but in your case my suggestion would be to take 2 pieces of suede which you cut to visor size and stitch them on the edge on three sides ( leave the open area towards the back of the visor where it is less seen) Then turn that bag inside out and pull over the visor. Then you would stitch the back side shut

how are the painted door panels held up? i'm planning on painting it myself. as far as the door perforated inserts, i noticed you mentioned it should be dyed.. can it also be spray painted? which one would you prefer?

Everything is holding up great except one high wear area of the seat. I sprayed the doors with the VHT, both the plastic and the inserts. All holding up great!

Not at all, and I wear a lot of white shirts in the summer and it's been great.

i did a very similar project, i had wheat interior and i blacked it all out, now i'm going with a 2 tone, black with red accents. I used Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric in gloss black, worked like a charm on everything except the seats, i should of dyed the seats. i have a few spots where the paint is cracking on the seats but it doesn't stain clothes
went from this

to this


sorry don't have updated pics with the red and black floor mats and red and black steering wheel

im thinking of redoing my willow interior all black with orange highlights on my OB coupe. thoughts? I just hate the idea of doing ALL black, I need some contrast. Where should i put my highlights? I was thinking around the clock, maybe the arm rest and shift area, wheel, and the smaller part of the seat(where you butt and lower back go)

Hopeful to get a response out of this old thread. I am about to undergo this process myself. Any idea how much paint you used? 12 oz aerosol cans, I'm assuming. I am specifically referring to the plastics, as the leathers will be reupholstered. I know if I jump the gun and assume how much paint I will need, I will either buy way too much or not enough to finish the project over the weekend I set aside for this.

Thanks!
