Rustoleum Paint for Dashes

Post by Coconut Eater on August 18th 2009, 9:21 pm

I just experimented with painting my dash with Rustoleum Safety Red in aerosol cans. Since the dash in my truck is all hard plastic, I decided I would experiment with painting it to match the exterior (which I have not started yet). The results speak for themselves! This was taken with my crappy cell phone camera, so the discolored "blotches) are a figment of the camera's imagination.

As for prep work, I scrubbed the thing down with Dawn and scalding hot water. I followed that up wit ha good scrubbing with a Brillo pad, then wiped it with an alcohol wipe. Even then it retained some of the old Armor All! That caused some fish eyes in the paint, but not bad. A second and third coat covered them.

sometimes depending on the angle of the dash or the windshield, bright color dashes perfectly reflect themselves up on the glass and cause a huge distraction while driving.

hopefully yours doesnt do this to you.

it looks great though!

I've painted the steering wheel, full dash, glove box door and instrument cluster carrier on my 67' Camaro with gloss black Rustoleum Universal paint. Turns out great every time. Lots of pictures on my Google Picture Album site... link in my profile on the right ----->
