    interior project

    Here are some pics of my progress so far. I'm converting everything to black. First pic is of the first (2) rear panels converted & installed. Second pic is of the new black leather door inserts I just recieved. And the last pic is of a headliner to match the door inserts. It just has to be dyed black, which will be done in about 2 weeks.

    Dude, thats nice, its gonna look awesome.
    What did you use to paint the panels black. I was thinking about painting mine cause they look like crap(all scratched up)?
    Any info you could give me would be great!

    Crylon Fusion for Plastics works the best out of what I have tried so far. Very easy to prep for & is originally made for outdoor plastic patio furnature, so its tuff too.

    How is its scratch resistance, meaning would it be suitable for door panels? My panels are so scratched up, and there is no way to fix them. Would the paint be more durable than the easily scratched cheap plastic?
    Also, do they offer the paint in satin or flat?

    I only found 1 shade of black. It says on the can its chip resistant after 7 days of curing. I would think even if it did happen to scratch, its only a quick re-spray to fix it.

    Awesome! Thanks for the help. I am going to take the panels out of my wrecked 97 and do a test to see just how it would look and hold up.

    Yes, it surely cleans up the interior!

    A 98' is not gonna be Ebony. Its gonna be that grey/graphite color. I believe Ebony only came in 00-02 cars. So if you got a 98-99 model the only way to get black/Ebony is to change it yourself or swap entire interiors which will put you up to around $1500 with seats & everything.

    My 97 & 98 both had Ebony.

    Never seen it before unless the previous owners swapped out interior. It wasn't even offered until at least 2000 as a interior color option on 4th gen. f-bodies.

    I think you are right. I always thought I had ebony interior. Do you know of a dealer brochure that would have the different color interiors with there names? I really want to get to the bottom of this, because I see this as a lot of confusion not for just me. I have seen several times on Ebay, gray leather being called Ebony. I looked up Ebony in the dictionary, and it is a charcoal black.

    Do a search on ls1tech. They seem to have lots more technical info on stuff like this.

    I have a 85 s-10 and I painted the dash and door panels with krylon fusion (black)and 2 years later it still looks really good. I havent had any problems. It just doesnt look quite as good as original black plastic but for a old truck its ok.
