Yea, It'll stick. I'm actually spraying my center console right now, I'm addicted to plasti-dip So far I've only done the cover for the center console compartment, the cover for the rear cupholder area, and the cupholders themselves. Seeing as these pieces are the same material it looks like as the dash, I'd say it'll stick. It looks great, and I'll be doing all the way up to in front of the shifter with it. If I down the line get the dash top done in suede like I want, I'll match the lower half of the dash in plasti-dip as well.

Looks great kahres I can't wait to get mine in!

Dipped !!!





Had it painted Semi-Gloss previously and it started getting marred up almost immediately. Wish I knew this stuff wouldn't come out glossy 6 months ago.

Couldn't be happier, this stuff is terrific.

HVAC faces look pretty light in these crappy pics but in real life it matches up nicely.

I picked up a few cans, but I'm trying to decide... what to paint and what to wrap in microsuede...

Would this paint hold up well on door handles and window cranks?

This stuff will hold up on anything man. As I said, after 5 coats I wasn't able to scratch it with a flat tip screwdriver.

I'm wrapping a bunch of stuff in microsuede as well.... where are you getting yours?

Sand with a light grit sandpaper, lightly, then clean. That's all the prep I've done and it's come out great on the center console stuff.

IMHO I think you should paint the little ring around the HVAC controls too. not necessarily the knob itself but the one around that that is still silver. meh.

Looks nice though.

Joan Fabrics. It's like the ultimate castration when you pull up and walk into the store. It's synthetic, stretchy, and $15 a yard.

Ooo I want to see how this turns out. I'd like to get rid of all my tan interior, but I'm too poor to get a complete oem grey dash (and trim). I've painted other interior pieces with the Duplicolor paint and it turned out kind of cheesy, so I'm leary about painting the dashboard.

I frequent the Joanne's here in Boulder haha, and the old ladies who work there always look at me out of the corner of their eye like "What is that kid in the loud car doing in HERE?." Also, I know exactly what fabric you are talking about, and my Joanne's is out of black and won't even order me any. I bought some of the blue.

If your Joannes has it, PM me and I'll send you money to buy me some!

It won't. I'm upwards of 7 coats on my center console and I can still see the texture perfectly. The only way I can think of getting rid of it would be to sand the plastic down flat, then spray.

They only had a yard or so back in January. It is supposed to be black but it has a blueish/purplish tint to it. I lost my receipt, but they told me that if its out of stock, they can order it back in.





First things I'll be spraying the plastidip on are all the scratched lower interior pieces that I originally painted a cheesy gloss black.

It sticks to vinyl too, I just sprayed my old tan sunvisors with it, since they were going in the garbage anyways. It seems to adhere just great. I bet you could get away with spraying all your remaining tan bits with it, as well as redoing your door cards.

Next time you're at Joanne's, check and see if they'll order it for you. If they will, then my Joanne's Fabrics hates me, and I'd be in your debt if you hooked me up. Could I bribe you with those grey door handles, which I still have?

Oh, and since its synthetic fabric, does anyone know if Rit dye would work on it? It'd be cool to make it a darker black, or allow me to dye another color that they do carry here black.

My girlfriend made that for me....my knob is never hot and its never cold I tried to make one my self but mine looked like crap compared to her's..

Update on the PD. You dont have to sand down your center pieces at all!...I was unhappy with one of the pieces; so I took it out of the car and just peeled back the PD....the piece looked brand new straight for the factory....pretty cool. Anyway I just re PD'ed it and it looks the way I want.
