The ultimate step by step guide to painting your car interior.

Use degreaser on panels before you prime to get all the crap off.

2 - 3 Coats of Plastic Primer, wait about 15-30mins between coats.

4 - 8 Coats of Vinyl paint, I usually wait 3-6 hours between each coat.

It may take a while, but the results are worth it.

Have fun,

Use Wax and grease remover. Most degreasers are petrolium based.

Sweet as, ive just started my xg, but ive done it to every car ive had...
I use wax and grease remover though, or prepsol, (same thing).
Then a few coats of black semi flex bumper primer, and a few coats of top coat clear. Then I cut/pollish like you would the outside of your car. For vinyl parts I use vinyl dye.
Nice job, and your shed looks heaps cleaner than mine too! Haha
