Mafhplayer7715 I sanded it down and used white primer first. I bought the oh so very expensive mopar matching paint and just carefully taped around and painted it. Used several clear coats. My best advice is to let it dry over night or a few days. I don't really paint anything ever and living in Florida I think a lot of the humidity got to it and chipped it off the first go around. I'm very happy with it I'm still trying to tackle the steering wheel trim and am having a hard time getting that nailed down.

Sasquatchewan I do hate all the Chrome on the inside Blue / Black / dark grey would look better than Chrome

Did you use mopar paint to do the vents or is that krylon or something? And did you put on a clear coat? Thanks it looks great

Get some bulldog "Adhesion Promotor" at an autoparts store. I use it on anything I'm going to spray paint, before the paint goes on, and so far all projects have turned out well regardless of the surface.

LOL!
90's Integra's rule! I still have my 98... I just charged up the battery and aired up the tires a few days ago. I take it out every now and then to get my "stick fix".

Mafhplayer7715 Having a hard time prying off the trim on the steering wheel so I can sand it down to get the chrome off. Any suggestions? Neighbors are tired of the horn going off too haha.
09-14-2013 04:25 PM
jwilson2598 The Mopar paint will work fine, many have used it on interior trim pieces just fine. Just get the chrome off so it will stick and you'll be all set.

So I shouldn't use the mopar factory paint? Haha might scratch the project then bc my OCD would go crazy having paint that doesn't match

Dusthol Try paint from a hobby shop. The type that the r/c car builders use. Its made for use on plastic.
09-14-2013 08:22 AM
Mafhplayer7715 Yeah the issue I've had so far is getting the paint to stick on the trim. I worked on it yesterday, took 4 hours to tape it all off (damn OCD) and when I got enough coats on, it chipped right off like cheap nail polish. Do any of you guys know if the steering wheel trim comes off? It would be 100 times easier to sand down and prime it, I just don't want to pry it off and not be able to put it back in. I like the way it would look, if it was done right.

I see people don't like to read... To answer your question, I would not recommend doing that to your interior. Maybe try finding some blue tape that comes close to cosmos blue to cover the ring in the steering wheel.

The cluster would require taking apart the unit. I did this in my Honda crx about 16 yrs ago, would never do it again.

jiggy Just take all those pieces off n have them powdercoated n reinstall them

Dr. Evil I did my vent rings to match my flame red JK. Just wanted to do enough to add a touch of color but not over do it. Came out perfect.

Mafhplayer7715 Working on it this weekend. Hopefully I don't screw up too bad and I can post some jk wannabe pics haha

ohioviper I think it looks great.Anything is better than the plain jane all black.

Crush21 Looks like a PT cruiser interior. Never understood why the PTs had painted parts on the interior, literally looked like a 4 year old put it together. And it's pretty simple to pull all those pieces off, just sand them down, buy the mopar spray paint and apply then put on a clear coat. Not to hard just a lot of light coats

Crashthings That does look good, there are some posts threads here that deal with painting interior parts like the vent rings and so forth. Might help.

JK Apache Interior Mods

Ok guys I'm in love with the interior of the concept Apache. Any help on how to DIY would be greatly appreciated! I have a 2011 cosmos blue with the matching vents so looking more specifically how to match the steering wheel trim and instrument cluster. I have the factory paint from Mopar but whats the best way to paint it? primer? taped off? Thanks guys!
