or you could take it a different route & use red 3m scuff pads to scratch the surface up a bit & then use primer to fill in the grain. thats another option.
id recommend the 1st way because your guaranting primer/paint adhesion to the plastic.
make sure to clean all your plastic with a degreaser before hand.
thanks 96. I wasn't gonna mess with it if i had to fiberglass it, everything I fiberglass should be well hidden! :biggrin: I'm tradin' in my 03 cavalier for an Xtreme blazer, and i'm tryin' to plan out all the mods. (always helps to have a plan)

that colors the bomb. ive seen alot of trucks, blazers, tahoes in that color & its sick. HOK pearls are very underated, well atleast around here. just think, i was gonna originally paint my car in tangerine...i think its an ugly color now lol.
Peace and blessings to all. I’m from Greensboro North Carolina and just purchased a 1980 Cadillac Coupe Deville. My interior carpet and seats are good but I would like to replace the entire front dash with the Digital dash set up. Was looking for someone that could walk me through the swap.
I got a hook up on canvas stayfast tops. Real nice and straight stitching. heat pressed with glass back window. I got mine for $625. I thought it was a good deal. $490 with rear plastic window. Colors in stock are ,black,blue, tan, and burgandy. Other colors available but are $60 more for custom...
I want swivel seats for my 72 Rivi and I have found cheap Monte Carlo seats, are these the way to go? I would prefer low backs, but since I want to have them diamond tuck custom covered. My question is will they work?
