Interior Door Trim Panel Repaint
I was tired of the poor and dull finish on my door panels and wanted them to look better.
I had considered powder coat but found out that the panels are too thin to be powder coated. My powder coater indicated that they would warp from the baking heat! That's not good.
So I decided to have the door panels repainted, and my painter also suggested a clear coat which I approved so the surface will not mar so easily.
The results are beyond my fondest expectations!
The paint is: PPG 37960 Variance 1 code. There is a clearcoat over that.
The pictures are not really a good example of the paint quality because my office lighting is poor. I'll take and post more when the sun comes out.
Next I will have the dash instrument trim and the radio trim done and then when I can remove it, I will do the center console as well.
I just can't get over how nice they look, and against my blue leather interior they will be outstanding.
