I personally reckon doing the dash would look tacky. The B series dash is spongy so I dont have good thoughts on the result.

Unless your gonna remove the whole dash.. MASKING TAPE will be your friend.

Spend a long time prepping. Quadruple check corners and edges for tiny gaps. I had a mate do his dash in car.. And while the dash looked awesome, all we could see were the overspray spots LOL.
