why would you even consider not painting it with a polyurethane or acrylic enamel with a HVLP gun ? :confused:

Because it was just in the shop for alot of paintwork and I didn't think of it till I got it back. And I figure its just the inside so how it looks isn't really that important I just want it to look decent and not peel at all. I want it black so that the white won't show up through the tinted windows.

it would take for ****ing ever without a spray gun and a compressor fyi.

you can have a setup worthy of spraying what you are doing for less than 200 bucks though.

oh hell, man just rattle can paint that ****. Peeling is entirely up to you, no matter what you paint it with. You need to clean the surface of the area you wish to paint with some acetone to get off all the oil and impurities first, and then whatever the hell you want to coat it with will stick well.
