well, if you want the nice smooth look you have a good start. the only thing is if your dash is going to flex and/or be touched alot you might want to finish it in "fiber-flex" they sell it on-line for like 50.00 a jug. but if your dash is just stationary, then your good.

first make sure you have all the dents and cracks completly covered.
second wet sand with 300 grit.
third wet sand with 600, then 1000, then 2000.

make sure any imperfections are completly covered, if not fill in with bondo and repeat.

primer, then 2-5 coats of paint. then wet sand with 2000 grit, then clear.
trust me it's well worth it, but it's a shit load of WET SANDING. HERE ARE PICS OF MINE AFTER I FINISHED IT. ;)

what a waste of a dash. the letters suck, especially the last N in clown'N
Payasomm thanks for the props.

and 306 caddy, i have more time and cash in my damn dash than you do in your whole fuckin car! wait do you even have a car newb?

anyways my dash was flexi-coated, thin layer of fiber glass, then flexi-coated again, then sanded for 2 days before i even thought about putting primer on it. after the primer came more sanding, then primer again, then paint, then more paint, then sanding, then more paint, then airbrushed, then cleared with 4 coats!

sad isn't it.....my fuckin dash is better painted than you car!!

next time ask sombody newbie! :uh:
