How to Change Your Car Interior Color


Changing the color of components in a car interior, or even changing the color of the complete interior, are often done when restyling or restoring a vehicle. You might be undertaking a project like this and are pondering just how to change your car interior color.

The obvious choice may be to obtain seat covers, door panels, trim, etc. that are in the color you want. However, this can be pricey and, in some cases, impossible if the parts can’t be found. If you are wondering how to change your car interior color more easily and economically, you can spray leather, vinyl and plastic components with paint designed for those materials. In this case, the key is to choose the right paint, like ColorBond LVP Refinisher, that will provide a durable finish that looks great and has a surface texture and sheen that look factory original.

Preparing to Paint Leather Car Interior

As with all paint jobs, properly preparing the surface before applying ColorBond LVP Refinisher is vitally important. Dust, dirt, grease, skin oil and appearance dressings need to be removed first so that ColorBond will strongly adhere without flaking or peeling. ColorBond Prep Cleaner is formulated to thoroughly remove these contaminants. Also, while LVP Refinisher can be directly applied to leather as well as vinyl and soft touch plastics, it is strongly recommended that hard plastic items should first be sprayed with ColorBond Adhesion Promoter.
