I was just having a look at 4DZILR's interior (Look's awesome, Well done :D ) and I was thinking I might paint up my dash.

Just a few questions - What's the best way to go about it? Take out the dash or tape up everything you don't want painted and spray?

And what's a decent colour to Match Polynesian green?

I ask because I really don't want to f**k up my interior.

While i've only painted part of my dash and not the whole thing... i would suggest that you take the whole dash out if your going to paint/dye it so that you can let it dry in the sun light properly, and also i would imagine that while it might be a biatch of a job removing the dash and putting it back in, i think it would make painting/dyeing it a lot easier.

But like i said, i've only painted my plastics, i haven't dyed the whole dash so someone may have a different oppinion.

Best bet is to take out the whole dash....easier to get a clean even cover....plus no need for all the news paper...i did mine in car but out of the car is a hell of alot easier...just alot more effort and time getting the whole thing out :P
