Default Half way done painting interior

It's all white now! I bought about $300 worth of PaperMate White Out to do this
But I'm going to let it dry, and I need my truck tonight, and then put on the red tomorrow over the white and then clear coat the sheeeiiittt out of it. here's what it looks like now, I kinda like it:






I'm excited to make it all red tomorrow morning thuogh... It's going to look so sick.

So, all of the white is going to be red? Why paint it white in the first place, is that just the primer?

What paint?

It's acting as a primer, because there is several coats, however it's just regular krylon paint. I put the white under the red so I get a brighter and more uniform red, instead of over black/tan.

I like it white! Looks really clean. Though can't wait to see it all red.

Looks like a killer job btw!

You probably already know this but,
Be careful! Krylon fusion says recoat within 24 hours or after 7 days, and this should count as recoating.

^^yea I'm doing it tomorrow morning however I don't really believe that much in that rule, good to follow if you can but I don't think it makes any noticeable difference under normal circumstances.

^yea so do I, however it seems out of place. the only thing I'm woried about is all of my blue interior lighting, that looks great with the white, might not look so good with the red.
what do you guys think?
I may just leave the gauge tunnel and radio bezel white, and make everything elsel red, but that might be a bad corrilation of colors for my interior...

^^I definitely removed all the parts, but the out shell around the steering wheel is also connected (one piece) to the gauge tunnel, so it had to be taped, and I did get a little on there. a little paint thinner and it'll come right off. seeing as how I'll probobaly make mistakes on the next coat though, I'll fix it all one I'm done with that. haha
