Fine steel wool will help...
ive been searching and way too many posts in this thread to go through.. can anyone give me the color/color code for the 97/98 supra dash panels? the only color i found was storm grey, is that right? ty
This is DupliColor Storm Gray, replaces T414 (GM paint color):
TJ - 1994 TT
I had plans on doing a wet drip tec carbon look but this might change my mind.
I did three or four coats, depending on coverage.
thanks vweuroracer! ... do u have any other pics/angles? i cant decide what color to go with??

I did my plastics yesterday and the clear Valspar primer did not do the trick like the OP. So, tomorrow im going to try the Valspar matte black plastic paint.
1993.5 TT 6spd TRD WB Hardtop BPU+++
Ill try and get some before and after pics up over the weekend. Im gonna spray a panel or two with the Valspar black plastic paint today when the lil one takes a nap, lol. Im actually gonna try the regular black(semi gloss) first to see if I like it over matte.
I ended up re-working them a bit in the sink and wetsanding them down with 600 grit and the results turned out much better with just the Valspar primer. I didnt spray them with the paint because I was happy with the results of the primer alone...

The Moment of Greatness Is Not the Action.
It's the Decision That Allows the Action to Occur.
This is one of those DIY tasks that you do and then ask yourself "why did I wait so long to do this". If anyone is hesitant about doing this, dont be. Its really quite easy, only thing I would have done differently is to find a stronger "stripper" to remove the top layer from the 93 panels.
Should have pics installed in car tomorrow... Turned out great! Also, removed the ghey glow gauges that were in there and returned to stock again. OEM, FTW!
I can't wait to do this. Gonna be a nice upgrade!

Good job there man im in gotta pick these cans up thanks .
Here is mine finished as far as the panels go
my time to contribute to this great thread. i purchase the car about a month ago and this gave me the jump start to tackle.. let me say that the rubber coating is a complete pain in the ass but im glad to get it over with today ( the dash is complete as far as rubber removal but i still need to do the doors at some point.)
I started using the goo - off stuff and then migrated to isopropyl alcohol which i sprayed on a workshop rag and then started to remove, for me this method worked great.
Later I wet-sanded all panels with 600 grit and a little dish soap
I was going to go with the clear but i changed my mind after all the hours of rubber removal and sanding that i will prime, sand, and go with a black trim paint of some sort. I will complete this tomorrow and install in the car.
NA for now.. GTE coming this year

Well guys im going to bring this thread back from the dead needing some assistance. I have every panel painted with tons of work on it looks gorgeous lol. I'm having problem with one dam panel..... I've sanded and tried to work my magic on it. When Applying the valspar primer paint the odo panel looks like it has water stains of some sort im really fed up with it. Thanks
