Messed up my interior

So the other day I took out the plastic middle interior pieces and I sprayed them . I didn't sand them or anything. They got dry and now there cracking.
What kind of sand paper should I use to get it of I tried 300 grit and 600 grit and nothing. Help please

What kind of paint ya use? Lacquer, etc....
Should of sanded off? ....try a little heat an sanding?
I just had to redo my dome light and sanded it with 150, 240, 400 grit...it was a pain....
If worse comes to worse sand blast it....but be careful it works fast and will eat through it real quick....I had to do some parts like that an maybe some more....

how about clean it all?
wipe it down with a cleaner?
if not ya made more work for yourself an hope it comes off easy for ya..
just give it a ruff sanding and prime it and start over again
but make sure ya get the surface so it has a nice semi-fine bite/no gloss to it...
won't have to sand it all off....just make sure the surface is smooth and no raised parts or sudden edges that will show and the end

what's a cleaner that I can use that won't mess up my interior.
And what type of sand paper should I use?

Cleaner & degreaser.....buy at auto parts store or use rubbing alcohol but don't recommend it....
.start off with a 100 or 150 make sue it's not dig to deep in to the plastic,
then on to 200 or 250 wet or dry sand it....get as much marks out ya can from the pervious sanding, smooth an no gloss is what ya want, wipe it down with a mild soap water(dawn dish soap works fine)then the cleaner/degreaser try to not touch it to much( finger prints) then primer it....lite coats... Then spray the colors your wanting and then a clear over that for added protection..touch as little as possible is the key and mount it to something that helps move it around while spraying will help.....

Might even try a local auto body shop an get little from them of the cleaner degreaser......12oz or more bottle should be enough but can never have to much...

And use good clean cloths in the process...lint free

I'm going to try sanding them first. Maybe wet 800 grit?
And I would if I had the cash my reckless driving ticket pretty much ate my wallet

800 would be to fine....for the base sanding....go nothing about 200 maybe 300 grit for the prime surface then if ya want when clear use the 800 wet..
The 800 will make it to smooth an have issues not wanting to stick...

---------- Post added at 04:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:24 PM ----------

But when ya scrub it with soapy water use a scotch Brite pad I've used the green and the gray colors for that....green is courser...make sure ya have a bite to the surface not smooth a fine ruff feel and see some sanding marks but not deep just surface...when ya prime it with couple coats your gonna kind of see the surface you'll get in the end...

I've got post in album ya can see some what of the surface should look like..

---------- Post added at 04:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:29 PM ----------

MI and what ya want on it will be the price ..if your looking for basic color not much just have to see a pic of the parts to see what I'm in for...just started to do interiors....and kind of fun...
