Hey guys,
I want to dye the dash of my car a cream color to suit the cream seats I have.
How do you go about doing this over a dark-gray dash?

There are a lot of preparation steps involved with doing this.
You are required to sand the dash back a fair amount and apply a plastic primer to allow the paint to stick. Don't use standard gloss paint as it may remain sticky once dry. See if you can get your hands on some plastic paint. I think autobarn sells some? Otherwise have a bit of a geez around the forum. There is already a thread on this somewhere...
