Ive seen peeps w/ custom interior like dash,center counsil or door panels painted. Does it take a lot of work and is it complicated? How do you go about completing a procedure such as this?

Thats a great way to do it.

I used that dupont duplicolor that you use for painting engines. It has ceramics in them so they handel the heat in your car so they won't melt and run down your dash.

well i got mine dirt cheap too.. with a valve cover and side skirts and all the interior, it was around 200 plus all the install.. but i had the spray paint and the looked really nasty and cheap.. i like my paint now, even though i might not keep the car much longer

i think he was reffering to painting the whole dash unlike just some trim pieces.
cant be done unless you glass the dash. well i mean it could be done i guess but you could never touch it and it would look BAD! oh and before you paint anything on you car DIY please find some scrap plastic and learn the correct ways of the rattle can, because if you do it wrong it can look really bad.

p.s. clear coat will be your best friend. because even tho you may be useing glossy paint, it will scratch but with clear coat only the clear will scratch and you can allways buff that out or re-spray it.

MAN!!!! You dont want to over do it!!!! Use a base, (Black) Main dash and door pannels, use your stock color for removable panels then add a touch of C/F or aluminum with some lighting and you have a winning combo! Trust me!!!
