Not sure where else to put this, so if there is a better spot let me know.

Simply put, Im planning on modge podging the shit out of my '04 Buick Rendezvous with sections from my old and damaged X-men comic collection.

Im starting with tackling the paneling around the radio and dash (photo below) which is comprised of thin sections and has quite a few curves.

Anyone have any tips or tricks or suggestions as to what products to use....am I just nuts...

Very interesting idea.
My question would be...does Mod Podge hold up to the heat of the interior of a car?
Without melting or becoming sticky?
My idea would include coating the surface with like a Thompson's Water Seal product, or other clear seal topping. After you Mod Podged your papers down.

Yes. You are nuts...but a happy creative one.
I wish you luck. It looks really cool.

They do! They make several outdoor, dishwasher safe and "hard coat" products.

I think I will probably use traditional tacky glue or modge podge to lay them down on the plastic, then cover with either the outdoor sealant or the hard coat sealant.

The area I am doing, because of the angle of the windshield and the tinting we have on them wont get much (if any) direct sunlight and we park under a tree when at home so Im not overly concerned with fading.

I actually dreamed about this last night...lol...obsessed a wee bit.

I am determined to turn it into my geeky mobile.

I'm impressed.  I've always wanted to art up my car, but worry about reducing the resale value.  Which is kind of crazy, because I keep my cars forever, and they aren't worth much by the time I let them go.
