    So i want to paint my dashboard because i dont like the grey dash that it has right now, it looks musty in my opinion lol... I dont know what paint to use tho, can someone tell me what paint is good ? Or what you've used before to paint your dashes before ? This is how it currently looks, the previous owner painted sum parts blue which i dont like either View attachment 3747 View attachment 3748

    I agree with Gold, SEM paint is good. But I've also heard plastidip is good for areas that you barely come in contact with. You can remove the dash to paint it, its a pain in the ass to remove though, ask me how I know. lol

    No need for clear if you apply the basecoat correctly
