    Painting Interior Plastic

    HI I need to refinish some plastic pieces in my interior. It was custom painted blue, but it has been chipping, it's not smooth, and some areas just look bad.

    I wasn't the original owner, so i'm not sure what they used. As far as I can tell though, the paint was an OEM toyota blue. Problem being that it was made for metal, not plastic.

    So my first question would be if I need to add a flex additive to the blue.

    I'm also confused about the differences between primer and adhesion promoter.

    My plan is this:

    Strip old paint with ?
    sand
    SEM soap
    SEM plastic and leather prep
    Plastikote plastic primer
    Blue with flex additive?
    SEM color coat satin clear

    This is my first time doing this, so I don't know all the steps. Do I sand after primer? What else should I know?

    Plasti dip ftw... Or what you said sounds good, I've seen people suggest wet sanding in between coats to keep down on the orange peel affect

    Not oem as far as I know but you'll probaly be able to get close.you'll still need to prep well.home depot or lowes has all sorts of paint removers,strippers that you brush on and it will literally make the paint gel up and wipe off.pretty messy but effective.that will get you back to original plastic.
