Cleanliness is next to godliness, or at least thats how the old saying goes. This is oh so true when it comes to prepping and painting your old, or new, Mustang interior parts. Plastic, metal, or vinyl - all need to be surgically clean and have a good surface prep before laying down paint/dye.

  • Scrub thoroughly with a citrus based degreaser.
  • Wash/Scrub with Dawn dish detergent.
  • Wipe the part down twice with denatured alocohol and a lint free cloth.
  • Shake can vigorously for one minute.
  • Lay down several thin coats to ensure nice, even coverage.

Our line of interior lacquer paint and vinyl dye comes loaded in an SEM propellant can and is loaded with premium PPG pigments. PPG was the OE supplier to Ford for their interior colors. This means you get the best delivery and the best product you can hope to find in a rattle can. Please keep in mind, the color formulations are based on OE color palates. Even if your car is a 1993 garage queen with 10,000 miles, it still has 20 years of fading on the interior. A newly painted panel or part may differ from the rest of the interior. This will be even more apparent on Mustangs that have sat outside for a number of years, so you may want to plan on respraying the whole interior when you begin.
