I want to paint some interior parts

Any threads that can help me in my quest for DIY interior painting? I'm looking for a thread to remove parts (like the center console) and also a good website to purchase interior plastic paint.

OR

If you guys think I'm crazy for doing this myself, maybe recommend a good shop in the Seattle area that'll do it all for me...

Ditto. Takes a lot of experience to do it right. Go BumperPlugs.

I have seen some of their amazing work. But what about removing the parts? I've taken parts out of my Cayenne with simple plastic putty knives. Can this be done w/ the 997 too? I just don't want to break any parts.

I have pretty much taken everything out of my 996. I'm not sure of the difference between the two but the 996 is fairly simple. I highly recommend a plastic interior removal kit. You can buy those on amazon for like 16.00, such as this one:

Jcusa,

Did you paint the parts yourself or send it out to be done? Where did you buy your paint if you did it yourself?

To remove center console look for a DIY on B&M short shifter. I believe there are lot of detailed photos on how to remove the console there.

I did it all myself, minus the alcantara stitching on the brake lever and shift ****.

I attached a pic of it. I would send you the entire thing but I'm waiting on my steering wheel and airbag to be done in the same alcantara material as the break lever and shift ****.

Interior Parts

Hi. You should consider consulting with Benjamin at Metropolitan Detail on Bel-Red Road. He has a lot of experience wrapping interior parts which can be returned to factory original very easily. He has virtually any color and gloss or flat finish and carbon fiber.

Joel,

Love that interior - looks sharp. Where did you get those seat belts and did you install those yourself? I would like to get some red ones for mine.

seatbelts are from suncoast porsche... ask Ryan. I install them myself, pretty easy. love the punch of color on an otherwise black interior...
thanks!

in regards of the scratches, Eric stuff is pretty durable

Wow, you guys are getting me very excited to start ripping my interior apart. Mine is just so plain. Definitely not fitting for a $140k sports car.
