Interior trim panel question..

I have a 1LT w/ the cloth covered interior trim.

I imagine the cloth is only on with adhesive, so I should be able to use some form of adhesive killer to get the cloth off and get down to what are basically transparent/translucent inserts.

Has anyone with a 2LT or 2SS painted these pieces? What kind of paint would you use to do the job?

I'm going to be working on a LED interior lighting group (footwells and a bit of trim lighting), and I figured if I'm in there running wires I may as well attempt to duplicate the door/dash ABL w/ the EL wire.

Apparently this requires some transparency in the trim, which is obviously something I can't do through cloth, thus the need to strip the cloth and paint the trim. Anyone have any advice?

We have used a standard urathane basecoat/ clearcoat to refinish interior pieces in a shiny finish. Since they are cloth covered it my take some work to get the glue off. You MAY even need to sand/prime the parts prior to respray. I could get you some prices on this work if you need. Send me a PM.

Appreciate the response.

I've got one of those DIY expert pals that felt it wouldn't be a big deal until I told him about the desire to repaint/sand to allow the ABL project through.

After we take a closer look at these trim pieces I may very well be contacting you. Thanks again.
