Anyone out there have any info on cleaning the factory coating off various pieces of interior plastic trim that have degraded in time then repainting??

Mine have a gooey film on them and I'm assuming it's due to age and the coating breaking down. You can scrape it off with your fingernail and I'm looking to clean them and repaint them black.

The plastic trim piece on the steering wheel column that is right below the instrument cluster, plastic bezel around the drivers door master switch panel. Pieces like that.

Anyone?

Thank you

Looks good Kittera

Did you use both types of spray on the pieces? or one for certain pieces and the other for different pieces?

How's it holding up, how long has it been since doing it?

Thanks

I'm wondering if using a good clear coat as the final coat would keep my pieces from getting scuffed. I'm going to stop at the body shop and auto paint store and see what they recommend. Many years ago I did trim pieces in another car and it came out next to perfect but I can't for the life of me remember what I used other than a good clear coat.

I'll look into the rubbing alcohol and SEM

As far as seats? A good set of seat covers works wonders and is much less expensive then replacing them.
