I will be painting and dyeing my interior this summer. I'm purchasing vinyl prep and dye for the dashpad and paint for the metal doors and metal quarter pieces, but what do I need for plastic (kick panels)? Should I use vinyl dye or spray paint? Do I need a special prep for plastic? I will be placing an order with NPD within the next week.

Use paint, not dye. No unusual prep needed for plastic or fiberglass. Just make sure everything is real clean.

For the plastic pieces, I'd recommend using a plastic prep, then lacquer paint. That's how I changed the color of my console and it came out great. The Plastic prep is like a primer for plastic, that gives the lacquer something better to stick to. It's available at any Mustang shop or Parts house.

I scrubbed my plastic pieces with dish soap, water and a green Scotch Brite pad to break the finish. I then painted with the lacquer finish they sell in all the Mustang stores. It came out great! (been 2 years now)
