In this post I have two videos that take you through the car interior painting process pretty quickly.
When painting car interiors, you do not need to be as meticulous with prepping as you should be when painting the exterior body of a car.
The reason why is, most times you’re using simple spray cans to paint the interior.
Paint like “Dupli-Color” a popular brand for automotive interior paints and also engine block heat paints. Ohh, I forgot to mention Auto Magic and Krylon paints too! …They also have some good interior paint and is what I used when painting the grey door panels and dashboard in the mercedes slk videos that you’ll see below.
So why can you be a little careless when painting interiors? Well, for starters the paint does dry very fast and you’re not putting a wet coat of clearcoat on that takes 30 minutes just to set up as you would for your regular base/clear paint job.
Prepping for interior painting is also pretty easy. All you really need to do is make sure your surface is grease and dirt free. Clean it by using some thinner, or your basic wax and grease remover.
Once that is done, the next step is to mask off what you don’t want painted. This is where your personality comes to play. If you have a little patience and actually take your time and do a good job in masking, your job will look a heck of a lot cleaner and just more professional.
You will get some overspray but no problem. Just wipe it off with some thinner or reducer and re touch up if necessary.
