Painting/Coating the inside of Burro compartments

Hi everyone
Has anyone ever painted or coated the inside of the compartments and closet on their burro. My 81 has some areas in the green fiberglass that are a bit "fuzzy" with fibers.

Sure.... if the exterior can be painted, I'd think so could the inside of the cupboards and closet.

Pictures, do you have pictures?

Thomas, the thing I did with mine was line them with Reflectix, since I was trying to insulate as much of the trailer as I could. I used one of those 3M spray adhesives to stick the reflectix to the fiberglass, and then used that wide silvery HVAC tape in the places where two pieces of insulation bumped into each other, to create a smooth easy-to-wipe surface.

Since I have a brown/turquoise/silver color scheme I decided the Reflectix fit right in, lol. But contact paper would stick to it if I ever wanted to change the appearance. Not super easy to make contact paper go around those compound curves, though, so I'm pretty sure it's all going to stay quilted silver.

Watch out on that unfinished fiberglass for threads sticking out. More than once I've got one stuck in my hand or fingers, they can be like a needle. Painting or covering would be a good idea, or even a coat of resin to smooth it out.

I painted the inside bins on my 75 Trillium and they came out great. I used a latex semi gloss .
