New post DIY: Painting interior trim *WIP*
So I wanted to try and paint my interior trim to silver like the M3's. I hate the wood look and instead of paying a few hundred bucks for the new trim why not paint it.

Here is the ugly mertyl wood.
Image


A while back I went out and bought some 3M silver metallic vinyl tape and wrapped the trim and it came out good but it was just a temp solution. It had bubbles and the folds didn't line up right on the edges and overall just looked ghetto.

So I went out and bought some silver metallic paint, primer, 320 grit sand paper, and some clear glaze.

Here's how it came out. (Still a work in progress)


The first thing I did was clean the trim making sure that no grease or fingerprints were on it.

Then hit it up with 2 coats of primer.
Image


After that I sanded it down with 320grit paper. (Do it very lightly)
Image


Wait...need to test it out first. So I painted my old roundel that was all cracked and chipped.
Image
Only 1 coat but not bad.


Now the silver, do very light strokes about 10in away. Should probably do 2-3 coats but I think I overdid it so I'm still getting my technique down. It came out EXTREMELY dull and very textured which I didn't like but after the clear it came out okay.

This is where I got crazy and glossed this bad boy up like there was no tomorrow.

Let it dry and top it off with a nice cold frosty one.

looks pretty good, did you ever wetsand it with a 1000-2000 grit paper? that would have made it come out a lot smoother, but they still look pretty good

Actually I overdid it big time. In the end it came out exactly what I didn't want it to be. It was way too glittery.
It was still wet in those pics btw.


Here is a pic of the paint vs the 3M vinyl tape..

Anyone know of a flatter silver that I can use that would match that 3M vinyl tape?

I actually tried so many different types of paint from brilliant silver to ultra silver and even silver slate. All of them came out glittery like that ugh.

That 3m stuff looks pretty good. It would be cool to match it like that. Not sure if you want like a bright silver or not, but try using like non car paint. What i mean is the paint that you got is for like re-doing fenders and what not and alot of cars have some kinda of metallic flake in it. So if you get some high temp grill paint or plastic paint or even engine paint, im sure that those might work alittle bit better.
