Default Plastic Dip Car Interior?

So, the interior of my Maxima is black. Of course, since my car is used the dashboard is somewhat faded and it doesn't look as nice as I would like it to. I have read so many things online about painting your interior and how it is usually a bad idea lol. Then it hit me yesterday, what if you used plastic dip? I have never used this product and I know a lot of you have used it for your badges, wheels and even your entire car. So I wanted to know, those of you who are familiar with plastic dip, how it would look if you used it to redo your interior and if you did would it last and could you use the same cleaning products you use on your dashboard on the plastic dip.

I know the only way to really find out is to try it but wanted to get some feedback from all of you.

Thanks everyone and HAPPY FRIDAY

Plastic dip would scratch of easy, if you were to lay something on the dash and it slid around

Try the steering wheel first.... Im dying to know how THAT turns out.




Seriously though... I think someone did do some of the interior parts... If i recall-the shift knob in particular. Didn't work out too well. Peeled off quickly...

Don't do it. It will look too dull and textured to look nice on a dash. It would last a lot longer on it than it would on the exterior. And I beg to differ on how easily scratchable it is. If you do about 4 maybe 5 coats, it's pretty solid and I wouldn't be worried of it scratching.

Also, no, you can not use the same materials to wash it. You will have to use water and maybe a sponge because if you use a cloth and rub too hard, it will peel. That's just the texture of it especially since its rubber.

Well what color are your seats and interior? I personally think if you have black leather to go for it! If it fails and starts to peel off then you can just remove it and all is good. If it stays and you like how it looks, then just do as NISMO said and apply several coats. Remember it is your Maxima and your baby. Have fun and make it different and unique in your own personal way! As long as you like it, go for it. I liked how the plastidip worked on my wheels. Keep us updated if you do it! Please post pix as well.

I appreciate everyone's feedback. I'll think about it a little further and let you know. Maybe ill try it on an area that is not too visible and see what happens. I will definitely keep you all posted.

Thanks again

Ok, I'm lost. You said your dash board is faded, but if you use the plastidip, it's going to be even duller than the dashboard that is faded. So even if you wanted to use the same cleaning material on it, it wouldn't make it shine at all.
