Default Painted some interior bits

Well, I went to the store yesterday, and bought this:



This stuff is apparently hard to find in Canada..especially on this chunk of rock in the North Atlantic that I live on..even more so in this little town that I live in. What i'm trying to get at, is that I bought the only can that I've ever seen around here. lol


Anyways.. Today, I started my next little project.

I started by taking the pieces off of the door panels. They came off much easier that I was expecting. I done both front and back doors. Then, I took the dash apart. I used up the better part of the can painting this. It was my first time using this..(I haven't even touched normal spray paint in almost a year) so there are a couple imperfections, but they're not that noticeable. I have to say, I really like this stuff. It blends with itself really well. Enough talking..on to the pictures.




The back doors:

Looks good. You know plasti dip comes off when you start to pick at it right? It is made to do that.

Haha yeah. I'm thinking about getting another can and painting some more parts, like the plastic around the window switches and maybe the vents. I'm not sure if I like them not done yet.

I wouldn't do the vents. The window switch covers would look good.

I think I'm going to leave the vents alone. Its too much of a hassle trying to get them out..i'd probably scratch what I have done. I might do the switches tomorrow, if I have enough paint left.

The vents might be hard to get the plasti dip off with all of the little parts they have.
