    Default Re-spraying interior door trim

    I'm looking on advise on the best way to re-spray the interior door trims. I have changed dash trim and rest to black, but door trims keep on peeling off not matter how many coats of lacquer I use?

    Can't you wrap them? Just an idea,but if you want to paint them how are you prepping the trim prior to painting

    You need to lightly sand the plastic first, because paint won't stick to a totally smooth surface.

    As above, you need to lightly sand the plastic but you also need plastic primer first.

    I disagree lads, sorry

    Remove the top plastic coating completely dont just sand it, then sand the base with 1200 grit ready for the plastic primer.

    Only after then apply paint then gloss to finish.

    It will last then,

    Done my passenger door handle and door switch this way and it still looks as the first day it got fitted.

    P.s Even being the passenger side it has had a lot of use in the last year.

    I've vinyl wrapped mine.

    Really easy if you use a heat gun.

    Make sure you degrease them well, you don't want any traces of flash dash etc
