I am in the process of painting my interior. I am trying to paint the wood dash peice silver in it is coing out like shit. Eveything else painter looks real good. Bu this peice is looking terrible. it keeps cracking. Could anyone help me out please?

Also, i saw pacman's diamond cut metal flooring. Just wondering if anyone has any info on it. I did a search and it doesnt seem that too many people have discussed it. Anyone know where to get it or how to do it?

thanks for your help

yea I sanded it down and I am using the Dupont flexible interior paint. My buddy used it on his interior and gave it to me. I have already used it on other stuff and it looks great but the wood looks like shit right now.

i got just the thing for u... go to ACE Hardware and ask for "Zinsser B-I-N Primer Sealer" it is a white and red spray can...spray that stuff on...sand it smooth because it gives a texture to it....then spray your paint....it wont come off...i had the same problem...

Here is what you do.....at least this is what I did. Sand it down, then once you have it sanded down, spray it with a very very light coat of primer. Spray it so you can still see through the primer, then paint it. I actually used High temp engine paint for the durability. Vinyl paint is cool, but it will chip sometimes. I painted the entire interior of my blazer like two years ago, and it chipped in certain areas, and you will scratch it off. I will probably get my interior pieces on the alty clearcoated over the winter.

As for the diamond cut flooring, you can go to any Lowes, Home Depot, or any other place that sells sheet metal. Buy some and cut it to fit with tin snips.

It was like $50 for a sheet that would do 1 front floor mat($100 for both front) and 1 sheet should do the back ones. $150 total...Well I guess its not that bad, considering the honda kits are around that range, but they're already cut and shaped.
