Has anyone painted their door panels and is there anything that will really adhere???
I painted all of the plastic trim (pillars etc.. ) With reqular spray paint and it looks great, hasnt come off or anything.. It should work on your door panels good luck..
I painted them with "plastic" spray paint and after a year or so they started flaking, I was hoping someone has used something like por-15 or equivalent to completely dunk them in.
You can dye them if you want. I think RIT will work.

I paintedmine with Flexstone, that gave it a textured finish and it hasn't flaked at all. That was about 6 years ago.
I haven't done the door panels, but I have done all of the other plastic around the cab to match the grey tweed. I used interior paint. It works pretty well, But I'm not sure how it would work on areas that get touched or used a lot
I painted my dash and door panels with interior paint from Autozone and it has held up fine.

I agree with BlazerGuy. I think dye would be the best for door panels. Ask a car stereo shop in your area about what type of dye would be best because most of those shops carry the Q-logic kickpanels that are made to be dyed. Door panels are made out of the same material.
Chevy good...Ford bad
Interior paint or dye as it is also called should work fine.Have bought it at auto zone and pepboys. The most important thing is surface prep,must be very clean. There is also a product out to spray on plastic parts to make it stick better. You can get all of this stuff at eastwood.com. They sell restoration supplies and tools.
You can have automotive paint shops mix it for you it is a special paint for plastics and they color match from the original codes.
That sounds like the best approach, I suppose it is similar to the paint on the plastic bumpers. Thanks for the suggestions!!
Can I get a redo on that link? As much as I would like to visit the Tourist house that is at that link, I would still like to see some restoration supplies. Just playing. Thanks though.
