  • Would this be easy to color match?

    I have a 2006 Ford Fusion with Piano Black interior. Here's a pic below...how easy would this be to fabricate and color match to look factory?

    Probably not too hard with the right primer, paints, and sealant. It would require a lot of sanding to make it smooth.

    I'd also look into glossy black vinyl.

      Easy take it to a body shop or even home depot and have them scan the color and mix it up for you. Some body shops can even make a spray can of the paint for you.

        Umm, if you use interior wall paint on your car, you deserve to be shot.

        You can get a little can that you pour automotive grade paint into and there's a little butane propellant can you put on the bottom. It's like a rattle can but it's WAY better stuff.

          that black color looks to be your car's body color so an auto body supply shop is your only bet

                no matter what your paint in the car you must prime it, is the part is plexible, i would go with latex paint on the primer

                  i've never used the cans from paintscratch, but i've used spray cans many times.

                  the whole thing with painting interiors, is like yevmeister said, you have to use a primer. then use really thin, light coats. i would use a clear coat when you're done, especially to make it nice and shiny like the factory piece.

                  take your time though, and it'll turn out just fine.

                    like yevmeister said, you have to use a primer.
                    Even if it's not plexible?
