I have used this spray with great results.
Here is a quick how-to:
1. Disassemble the model and take the interior "pan' out.
2. Wash the parts to be painted with soap. I use dish-washing soap.
3. Mask off the part that should not have carpet-like the console.
4. Paint according to can instructions. Use as little as possible of this paint as it will get thick with more coats.

I just now wish that they made it in black! I am shooting an email to Krylon.

Here is a closeup of the results. Looks and feels like carpet!

Great tutorial Al, I've been trying to put carpet in the Olds 442 that a have,
I've been trying to use the method that Eddie uses, and well..... it's not to
easy at least for me. I like the way you did it, and it looks to be a hole lot
simpler method to use. Where did you say you got the can spray at. And
does it come in different colors?

Mark, I found it at HobbyLobby, but I have seen it at Michaels. I would imagine that a craft store would have it. HL has it with the paper stuff the "memory" books are made.

I have seen a green, blue, brown but no black.

Man, I am going nuts with this stuff! I have identified 34 budget models that I want to do in my collection.
So far I have done a Maisto X-type Jag.
Next is an Anson 911 Turbo. Actually it is drying right now.

Thanks! It is stupidly easy to do! If this stuff cam in black, I would buy stock in the company as I would be buying it by the case!

Felix, I haven't tried it on seats or anything that has small details like seams or stiching.
But I might try on a old Bburago 300SL.

Alp, Krylon should be a worldwide company but I don't know what other company makes it.
