So I recently painted my arm rests and little door handle clip things and it turned out great untill a few days later after sitting in the sun for a while the paint is starting to bubble up.. :/

I have noticed a few other people on here have done the same thing and was wondering how ya'll are keeping the paint looking nice..

I'm wanting to do alot more painting on the inside but don't want to waist my time if it's just going to melt basicly..

Any ideas or did I do something wrong?? Thanks :)

The small trim around the door handle? I painted mine pink, and shifter trim pink last summer. I sanded each piece, painted numerous coats (used Rustoleum), then did a clear coat. Mine have not bubbled.

How did u paint your pieces?

I did the same. Sanded down till it was smooth and painted them red with 2 coats and then 2 coats of clear. But when it's super hot out they get soft and mushy and start to bubble.. Nothing like this has ever happend to me before and I paint anything I can get my hands on haha

I don't know then why it's doing that. I suggest using high temperature paint then. I used it for my engine cover and it never bubbled.

had this happen on some trims i had painted around the house the paint was actually some kind of crap that rubberise when dry so i would say go at it again with some other kind of paint sorry to say it wil not be easy to take that stuff off.

Painted mine with stuff from Walmart lol and never had any bubbling and I did those last summer in the hot sun, I would say try some spray paint that can withstand higher temperatures

Yeah getting the paint off took ALOT of sanding haha.. It was not fun. But I used what I thought was good paint, got it from advanced auto and it was called plastic paint.. Can't remember the brand.. But i'm going to try some high temp paint and see what happens.. Thanks ya'll!!
