firstly i got my dash facia preped in plastic primer then high filled ( putty )
wet rubbed that back 800grit paper and air brushed it with the left over color from my car ( had other spray work done hence the left overs )
while i used some silver from another car from work ,
Rubbed the grain finish off the radio surround with 400grit on the electric sander also doing the gear shifter soround , clock and demist panel !
If you got some past expreince in painting auto paint it you should be ok with it ! !
