you need to get some "Krylon" primer, paint, and clear........take all the pieces off you wanna paint........sand them with some 330 sandpaper, just enoght to scuff them up a bit, then wash off with soap and water, let dry, primer like 2-3 coats, let dry, shoot the paint like 3-4 coats, I did 5 for the extra deep look, let dry, then hit the clear like 2-3 coats, let dry, then put your stuff back on........GOT ALL THAT???????:D :D

ok well i'm in the middle of painting and i used the krylon fusion paint that worked pretty good. i used a 220 paper and then primed and sanded again till i got it smooth. then sprayed 6 lite coats of white on. and now i'm gonna shoot clear tmr. the fusion is made for plastic and it says no primer or sanding but i did cause it came out better than the pieces i didn't sand

Just bought an 88 S-10 Tahoe and the interior is pretty beat. Thanks for the tip on the Krylon paint. Can someone point me to a good place for aftermarket doorpanels and such?

Thanks!
(ps. It's really just going to be beater truck for a while but I do want to freshen up some.)
