Suzuki Interior Paint Makes Trim Look Like New!

November 5, 2020


As a longtime user of ColorBond, Andre L. is a fan. Originally learning about ColorBond years ago, Andre has completed several interior restorations and restyles on his personal vehicles. The first project was changing the interior color of a ’77 Thunderbird to white. This author came across Andre on Malaise Motors, a forum dedicated to 1972-1995 vehicles and where he posts his vehicle restoration projects. After speaking with Andre, we received his blessing to post his work on the ColorBond website. We’ll begin with his latest undertaking, the interior restoration of a 1994 Suzuki Sidekick. Future posts will cover a selection of his other projects.

After many years, the Suzuki’s plastic interior and exterior trim pieces had become oxidized and faded. Especially prevalent was the Sidekick’s steering column housing which is notorious for deteriorating. Here we see the before and after photos of the restoration of the column housing, door pulls, door handles and wheel center caps using ColorBond LVP Refinisher Suzuki interior paint.

Andre says he had previous experience with other interior paints, but none lay out and bond to the surface better than ColorBond. Andre enthuses that after three years the ColorBond in his ’77 T-Bird still looks great! Also, he found a can of ColorBond provides more coverage than those of the competition.
