I want to paint my interior and I was wondering if anyone could tell what kind of paint is the best to use for doing that. Thanks.

if u wanna go for the best, get the ones u can find at JCW.com. but if ur like me and cant afford like $20 a can, get duplicolor. it is the can that says "vinal and fabric" and under that "color". my friend who customizes cars told me duplicolor was the best. i have done it to my 3gee and it works great on fabric, vinal, rubber, and sometimes plastic. not so well on slick plastic unless u rough it up with some lite grit sand paper.

If I wanted to redew the trim that goes around the car on the outside do you think that the duplicolor would work good on that too?

when painting exterior vinyl you need to use flex agent in the paint or stick with vinyl dyes (the dyes do not gloss as well)

i have a question about dashes.. and the ease of removal...

is there a hell of a lot of electrical shit attached to the dash? i want to take it out and paint it all black.. but if its gonna take me 2 days... i wanna know...

The Dash isn't that hard to remove BUT get your hands on a workshop manual from there it is A B C It will show you how to dissassemble BUT more important how to REassemble

yah.. i have a Chilton, and the honda shop manual... so it sould be ok.. i might go black with blue accents... or blue with black vents.... but no white dash.. it will get dirty really fast....
