added the pic

as you can see, i have problems with my paint, i'll have to remove everything and sand it again...

don't know why but the paint kind of soaked where there is a difference of material on the center piece. If anyone has a good trick for it not to happen again, please tell me as i don't want to start over again all the time.

SWEET! cloth seats? i thought those only came on the non-turbo SE models? or no? anyway i dont think anyone else will post pics of their interior because i dont see how you can follow thAT post haha! awesome job man!
you are right, i swaped my interior with a guy that had an NA, i had tan he had black i wanted black, he wanted tan, this is why.

how do u reach the dvd player?
actually i have to use the remote control, but i only use an mp3 cd so i never touch it anyway.

It is kind of annoying to have it there but it was really close that i wouldn't have any radio, my girlfriend disagreed... this is why it is in front of her :D

i think if u use like a layer of bondo on everything, then sand that down you wont have that problem so its all the same surface on the top, but im just guessing, great job on the interior
yeah well i tried some bondo which look like a paste, no mix to do. Do you have any product in particular in mind?

Bondo makes a lot of products, which one would be the best?

There's your answer ----> "a paste, no mix to do" <----- dont use again.

You need to use professional grade materials and a product that has a hardener. Your stuff is literally soaking up all the primer/paint work. It's called shrinkage. Especially if you paint right after the bodywork (within a day or a few).

Go to a local distributor and get you some good stuff (most bondos are fine) and use filler primers etc.
It all depends on your access to spray guns and help etc.
good, someone with a good answer.

OK, i would really like if you could develop on this a little. I have tried going into auto parts store but they all tell me they don't have anything for plastic, it's always for metal.

Also, what is a filler primer? I asked if there was some sort of a primer i could use that would be really thick and sandable that would stop the paint from doing that but seems like i talked only to ignorant. I am really not a pro of body work, i prefer mechanical an electronic work. Think that regular stuff for metal would work on plastic?

Would using something like the stuff they use for fiberglass work? If you have any part number from bondo on top of your head, that would help

thanks a lot for any help you can give me.

oh and one last thing, there is almost none of the paste i was talking about on this part, i used mainly epoxy glue since it can be sanded. Do you think that this epoxy can cause me a problem? It seems like if it was my plastic portin, not the plexiglass, that "drinks" the paint, which would cause that effect.

I also learned not use plexiglass anymore, i suppose the difference between that material and the OEM plastic is always going to give me problems. The plexiglass is not flexible and it is thicker.

Just hope i can find something to correct my mistake without having to redo everything.

thanks for any help

Ok I have to ask this. In your first pictures your dash gauges (Speedo, tach, gas/engine temp.) are all white face gauges and then your picture at night they are black faced with blue lights and also the speedo has the supra logo in it. I've never seen those gauges before let alone ones that are white faced but black at night. What are they? Where did you get them? Did you cut cut that supra logo out yourself? Any info about how you did that would be great. I love white faced gauges but I hate when at night the lights shine through the white faces and if you didn't somehow trick me with those pictures, I think you have my solution. And on a side not what color is that dash, its a very classy color. thanks.
if you are talking about my car, yes, they are from speedhut.
