That looks great.

Personally, I'd try polishing it so the paint has the same gloss as the exterior, but that's just IMO. You might not want that much shine in the interior, though.

Colormatched Dash!

I used automotive exterior paint and clear so I treat the dash like the exterior paint. It gets cleaned, polished, and waxed.

it doesnt class it up....... it goes into "boy racer" mode........... I went through this stage you'll understand later it looks like ass.

If you do just a few bits here an there like vent surrounds or tiny bits in the door it actually looks nice......but when you have a blob of color like that


this is you

I had this idea a while back and haven't done it yet. I like it, but yours doesn't really look like it turned out all that great. Either not enough prep or too much paint. It has that orange-peel look..

Since when did you become the authority on "class?" I'm surprised you took your tin-foil hat off long enough to form a complete sentence.
