Interior painting

Hello all, I just picked up a 69 Sovereign 31 for $700 in fair/good shape... Everything OK, 1 broken window, furnace dosen't work. Form what I have read here I happened into a good deal. The inside is a bit dingy does anybody have a tip on paint to use on the vinyl interior panels?

Thanks, TED

I remember reading something posted by 2Air some time ago regarding painting the walls... said to make sure and get the vinyl off because it is not good surface for paint - wouldn't adhere well.

Paint will stick to the interior "vinyl clad" metal.

But you must clean the walls very well.

Then you "MUST" sand into the vinyl with at least 100 to 120 grit sandpaper.

Scuffing won't do it, sanding is a must.

Then you use a high quality "primer."

Let the primer "out gas" for a couple of days.

Then, paint over the primer, using a high quality paint.

If you sand the vinyl with an 80 grit sand paper, you can actually use "Zolotone."

Our shop has used both of these methods, without any long term failure.

Thanks, from your replies I read some other threads I will sand and prime with Sherwin Williams and top coat with a slightly textured acrylic to approximate the orginal vinyl. The '69 should be livable by May
