    Thats the stuff (for the seats)! You can get it at your local grocery store in the fabric softner/soap isle. The interior panels and dash were painted with Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint. Almost 2 years and still holding.

    Did you use the gloss black?

    did you use the first one or this one?

    also did you bother with thier "Adhesion Promoter"
    or did you just make sure to wash it really well?

    Thanks for the kind words. I used flat black I guess. Its definatly not glossy the cap is flat. I honestly don't recall if it actualy said "flat" on the can it was all they had at Autozone. It gives it a factory plastic look so its not shiny at all but it shines right up with armorall. As for washing yes I cleaned the hell out of everything and did not use any adhesion promoter. I did use a sort of rough sponge. They were some cheapy scotch pads but not as harsh as a typical dish washing sponge with the rough side. A tad softer but good enough to get in the cracks of the vinyl and plastic grain patterns.

    I'm curious man as to what you sprayed most of the dash with, the softer parts. How did you spray that black without the paint cracking? I have an accord and I've been trying to redo most of the interior to black.

    Its Vinyl paint so its made for flexible material. So far its still holding up great almost 2 years later. The only spots that need to be touched up is the "b" pillar area from the seatbelt and loading **** in and out of my car but its mainly scratches not so much chipping. Other than that this stuff is hard to remove if at all. I have a stereo comp coming up in 2 weeks so I will have some newer more recent pics up.

    nice car! I'm gonna have to basically agree with others with the paint job, but you are right, priorities first, the paintjob can wait. I wanna see pics of the cleaned up engine bay tucked wires? I love how you still have back seats i completely removed the rear seats of my 240 for my amp rack, although you're more performance oriented, i'm goin for show first, go after. You're going all around best g'job!
