Austin Vert's Floor Console Resto Saga.

Austin Vert;192097 Wrote:Hi Pete,

The NPD satin black non metallic would be OK TO USE ON THE CONSOLE,although i have not personally used that particular product as such to give you an accurate reccomendation.

The other SEM product as i said before, may or may not contain metallic.For finishing the center gauge bezel, i would stick to using the NPD black lacquer as well as the floor console. You won't be disappointed.

Lastly, if you have no other choice but to use spraycans, well so be it, but they won't give you the best quality refinish job as paint out of a tin would and shot through a spraygun. Any how, let me know how you get on and all the best with your projrect.

Thanks Greg,

Sorry to be beating this dead horse, but I really just want the best product I can get in a rattle can. I wouldn't even know where to start in trying to find someone around here to respray my interior parts professionally, and no telling what they would charge. Since mailing them to you for a respray would not be feasible due to the shipping charges, I guess I'll get a few cans of the NPD lacquer and have a go at it!!

I'll post some pictures when I'm done. Thanks again and take care... Pete

That was a nice job on the console. If you want a sticker shock get a quote to plate the chrome again. Not too many places can do plastic and we all know the instrument cluster, center dash, console and right dash all have the little bit of chrome showing to set it off. The quote I got just for the speedo / tach part was $450.00 so you would need to do that for 4 pieces. I told them they were crazy and did not do it. Going to research on if you can buy pieces of the material that they do car wraps with. I saw several in China and the entire car looked like chrome. It is some kind of plastic wrap don't know where to look for it. Just a thought when all the shiny stuff is gone from cleaning the interior too much. You have to go easy on that stuff.

Hi David,

Great to have you on board in the forum. Thanks for your kind words and feedback. Yes, i have not researched any plastic chrome companies around the world or locally, but i am aware that this process is not cheap.
I believe that when any one piece is done, the whole piece is chromed, then black paint is sprayed on the remaining areas to finish off.

I folked out the money, and bought all new dash and console pieces for my '73 Vert. I felt it was worth the money in my case. And yes, plastic chrome is very delicate, and needs babying to make sure it lasts, that's for sure.

Cheers,

Greg.Smile
