Hit a couple wrecking yards today and found some really nice interior bits for my AE86, but they are black
This wouldn't bother me, but my interior is blue like this:
(Just some pic I found online, BTW; not my AE86)
Anyways, I'd really like to repaint/dye my interior parts like in this thread:
I'd really like to dye the parts instead of simply paint over them though.
So my questions:
1) How do I find the paint codes/colors of my AE86's interior? I'd really like to find a factory color match.
2) Is it possible to dye a black part blue (I am thinking not)
And finally, if anyone has any advice/tips I'd really appreciate the help too (prep, products, etc.)
EDIT: I kinda figured it out myself, so I'll post my findings here.
Found a thread here on removing the color on AE86 plastic parts:
I've actually found a bit of info on using oven cleaner to remove paint from plastic; kinda interesting (I'd be worried about melting or otherwise ruining the part though)
Also did some research on the SEM paint used in the first link. In the below video, it looks like they used the paint to color plastics/vinyl a lighter color:
I'm thinking some SEM paint on my black parts would work nicely
I also picked up a heat gun at Harbor Freight to repair some of the plastic interior bits on my car:
I'll keep you guys posted here
