    As posted on page 2 of this very thread.....

    If you want it smooth for a glass like finish, clean and prep it as above and then lay a layer of filler primer over it. Do that in 3 steps or so till all the grain is out. Sand it smooth using the wet sand method and 220 grit. The lay some paint on it.

    Now understand this..... if you push really hard on top of the dash, you can crack it. Although in all my years I have yet to see someone lay on top of their dash, or kneel on it, I suspect your dash wil last for plenty of show seasons. I know people who have done this plenty and the dash looks awsome still.

    It will hold up as long as the clear coat is good.
    If you just spray a 1k base, it could fade.

    No such thing as a dumb question.

    You can spray out of a bottle, no problem. The trick is to keep the paper and surface wet so it cleans both of the sanded material, making the paper last longer and the surface being sanded smoother.




    ONLY wet sand primers and paints. DO NOT wet sand body fillers. It will bubble up over time ruining your paint job.

    As for dulling I've had mine done for over a year now and it looks just like the day I finished it.

    These are the only pics I have of my interior done just like db wrote up:

    I agree. In my opinion, black and red combination is hot and daring.
