Painting interior

Hey guys, so for those of you that have either spray dyed or painted their interior, how many cans of paint did you have to use? Im looking at doing a pillar for my gauges and the door panels. Also what is the correct tan color for an 06 KR interior? Thanks in advance

Tagging along too. I'd love to know what the color is and where to get the paint as well to match the KR tan interior

also wondering if its worth painting the door panels or if it will just chip or wear away. That would bother me way more than a slight mis color

I would be afraid of chipping/peeling on the doors.

Check out paintworld.com and see if they offer interior paint and/or paint codes.

Check out a paint called colorbond, it is supposed to be approved for OEM by ford and others. I picked up a can to do my gauge pod, but haven't go around to it yet to see how good of a match it is.

I dont mind painting the pod at all, its the door panels with constant use that would be a gamble

Check out Dupli-Color...Fabric and vinyl paint,its designed for automotive plastics,i used it yesterday changing panels from grey to black.You need to clean panel first with TSP,then use an adhesion promoter....says its guaranteed not to peel or chip,but cleaning and prep is crucial!Theres a video on youtube...if i can figure out how to post it i will!!

Check out this website. I ordered a can from them and it is an exact match. Painted my quad pillar and you can't tell the difference. Actually, just finished painting my 08-10 center console. As far as how much paint you need, depends on what color you are painting over. If you are going from dark to lite or vice versa, then its gonna take more paint. I painted my black quad pillar and 08 tan console medium pebble and it took one can. Don't forget to prep your plastic first!!!

In my 2004 KR I used SEM classic coat in medium parchment. I didn't spray the whole panel, just touched up some areas & it matched great. The part number is 17053. I did use the SEM vinyl/plastic cleaner first.
