Rattle Can Dash

I want to spray paint my dashboard,



the tan section in the Red ellipse, black and maybe some green to match the exterior.

Would Krylon Fusion Camo be fine or would it be better to use something else?

I may also paint the interior plastic on my half doors in the future, so would Fusion work for them also?

Using the advice I received from another board, I bought 2 cans of Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric Flat Black spray cans. It has adhesion promoter already mixed, so no need to buy more cans then needed.

I'll be disassembling the dashboard tomorrow and painting it, so I'll post some pictures as I'm painting.

Here's how the spray painting of the interior went. Not 100% done, yet.

What kind of prep work was required before you painted? Looks good. Probably do mine come spring.

All I did was remove the parts from the Jeep, rub them down with clear ammonia, wait till the ammonia dried, and sprayed.

I only used 2 coats, because I only had 2 cans of flat black Duplicolor.

2 Days after spraying, i can't scratch the paint, no matter how hard I try.

You didn't use this?

Might crack if you used regular spray paint.

I used Krylon for plastic, not Krylon Fusion, and mine is already flaking off. I'll be repainting mine this spring. I think I'll use my pressure washer on my panels as part of the prep work.

Ive used duplicolor vinyl/fabric on the trim piece around the radio in my grand prix and it looks great.

Hmmm, I think I might spray my dash flatblack in the yj.

Marhyde also makes a good product that can be found at Advance Auto and others. The key to success in my experience has been to wipe everything with laquer thinner right before I spray. It leaves the surface "tacky" and really gives the spray somthing to bond to.

Yep, except for the doors, which get the most abuse. Though for only 2 coats, the doors are doing better then I expected.

I'm going to create a design with the Jeep logo to go over the airbag, and it's been too damn cold to paint the airbag and grab handle.

I also used Krylon for Plastics and the upper sections on my door skins have cracked. Glove box door is holding up fine as are the speaker grills and stuff that doesn't get smacked every time somebody gets in. Really like having my interior all black.
