Help Black Interior
I've been trying to brain storm ideas to make my interior black not grey! This includes the dash, the center console... actually everything plastic in the car grin

The main thing is I want to have a nice textured paint job rather than a typical "take a bottle of paint and spray black" cause that would look very plastic. I like the interior I have right now if it was just black!

Give me ideas! wave thanks!

Might just be easier to take the interior out of a newer wrecked Celica.

There's actually an interior spray can that you can get. They come in different colors and you can choose whatever you want. Hrm... I think Duplicolor makes it, but I know Advanced Auto has it. Steven, you remember that stuff you tried out on your trunk plastics?

If you want it to really look good get an 03 interior from a wrecked celica like slidr said and put that in. I do like how the newer celicas have that black rather than the old dark gray.

Yeah, but good luck finding it. A wrecked celica is so rare. And to get just the right year with all the good parts in it. Go find a leprechaun first, then try for the interior. laughsilly

Don't dye it unless you know what you're doing. Duplicolor makes a spray can that looks like spray paint but it can be applied on plastics. The problem is that it flakes easily.

please define "know what you're doing"? I am also very interested in getting it black, and have even gone so far as to consult a professional to do it. Are there anyways to prevent the flaking?
