i have a black 97 tbird and im planning on paiting my rubber coated interior pieces, but i cant decide if i want to use a glossy black or a metallic silver since my car is a le? all opinions welcome
YOU DO HAVE TO SAND IT OFF. Otherwise it is a matter of time before bubbling, and the topcoat will flex and flake. Cavy, I have seen the pieces done in gloss black, and I think it looks amazing that way. As I told Tyler in a different thread, the silver on grey dash will give little contrast and not look as well.no, you dont have to take the rubber off. you just have to lay down every coat LIGHTLY. or else it will cause teh rubber to bubble up. it works, with patience. put three coats on, let it DRY for aobut 3 hours. then sand lightly with 800 grit to smooth it out, add another coat or two. sand with 1000 or 1500, and 3-4 coats of clear... xsand with 2000-2500 grit, and go over it with polishing compound for a nice shine.
im not sure how to post pics but i can email you a few if you would like...when i say le i mean limited edition. i just wanted to make sure i was using that the proper way. also the previous owner took the limited edition stripe off..i wish i knew how to get it back on therehave you got any full size pics of your car? It'd help in determining colors.
Besides, I don't think I've ever seen a black LE! I bet it'd look great.
