custom interior
Hey Guys
Anyone in here has their interior paint. I mean everything, not just the center console. How you do the dashboard?

I did mine red. Envy, I did those door pieces that are on the inside of the door that follow the seat to the dash (say Celica on them). It looks pretty cool. I'll have pics in a bit. If you want your dash painted, I would say to have a professional do it, because taking out a dash is not any fun at all. Trust me.

Hey Envy
How did you do your interior? Is it vinyl overlayed? or what?

a simple can of spray paint and a lot of patience...i am a perfectionsist...i hate when something isnt right so i just made sure to take my time and used a good coat of primer and paint...i am about to redo it though...i dont like the rough look that much...im gonna park my car for about 2 weeks and sand each piece then wet sand and get a nice smooth surface and then repaint with a blue that is more metallic and one that is high heat so i can use it in my engine bay and have everything match...see, im picky...haha...just tape off good...take your time...and HAVE FUN!!!!

I put 2 coats of primer, around 4 coats of paint and 2 clear coats, and I love the way it turned out. I get compliments everyday, people say that "it looks like a professional did it" and ask me where I got it done. I wish I had my pics up. I'm waiting for a sunny day to take more pics.
