Not sure if this should go here, or to looks to kill, but if not, mods, pls move it.
Anyway, I finally painted my dash today, I'm so happy,.. here are some pix:

By the way, I used this stuff: http://www.autostyles.com/sem.htm
Picked it up from my local auto paint store.
Works great! They even have clear coat for this type of paint. No messing with sanding or primer, just clean and spary it on. I'm not gonna use clear though,... it'll be too damn bright! If it were dark blue maybe,...
I do suggest a heat gun, makes the job <b>WAY</b> easier!
I ended up using like 2 1/2 bottles, I could of gotten away with just 2, but I put <b>LOTSA</b> coats on the top of the dash! :D

sup man, awesome job, now I know you don't want the glare, but I HIGHLY recommend you put at least 1 coat of CLEAR... it is much easier to clean and it attracts much more, if you ever get anything on your paint now, it will be very very hard to clean it...

Thanks Bat,...We'll see,... finding time to do all of that was a bit tricky,... but yeah I might do it. Actually, I did accidently get some grease on the door already and I just took a little bit of soap and water and it came off. I dunno, maybe it's this SEM stuff, it's not really paint, it's a dye, and comes out like a mist, and doesn't run unless you spray a crap load on one spot. Normal Spray paint runs way more easier.

I still thinks your dash looks the best, but it's too much maintenance,... <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks dude, before I went with Silver, I was thinking blue, kinda give it a Silver / Blue color scheme, but decided against it,...<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
