going to paint my dash etc, was wondering if the vht dye is the best stuff to use compared to just the normal vinyl paint? i know there's a few people on here that have done it, so what did you use?

I managed to do it with one can. I really recommend that VHT Vinyl Dye stuff, its the best. Also dont do it inside the car, go the extra mile and disassemble it, makes the job MUCH easier. I did about 4 coats i think, and it came up a gem. Just before you start, clean the surface really really well, i think i used a little bit of metho on a rag and cleaned it that way. Inbetween the coats though, let it sit for bout 5 mins before doing it again.

Door trims pretty much the same thing, but youd need another can for that stuff i reckon....

i went though 4 whole cans on mine.

i took all the parts of the dash out and painted them, in aircon vents, THE LOT.

i also sprayed the top of all 4 of my door trims (kept the stock two tone effect)

i did the dash the one main bit, while it was in the car, i did this last so idd know how the can sprayed. came out with no runs or thick spots.

for a better stronger finish, NEEDED for plastic parts, is a plastic primer, i only needed one can of that.

the biggest tip i found was, many VERY light coats works best with this stuff, as it runs easily.
