Dashes

I also painted mine white. Sanded the dask smooth, put some white and some clear on it. Looks good. I'm also working on doing the rest of the dash, just recieved the rest of the pieces about a week ago.

Dashes

Thanks for the comments. Mine is all sanding, but I did cheat a little. I was ebay and found a 01 dash for my D. It was tan with the wood grain around the raound (was already smooth). Filler would prbable be ok, but it would probable crack the next time you took the dash off. Also, when you go to paint it, watch out for how much paint you use, I have some very minor spider webbing because I have like 3 coats of pimer (sanded), 6 coats of white, and like another 6 of clear. Just to show that anyone can do this, all the paint is Krylon for Wal-Mart (just the best can you can buy, don't be a cheap skate). If you have anymore questions, I can try to help.

WicKed R/T D, just one more question, what grit sand paper should i start out with?
Wicked,

If you have a really textured dash, I would start with 180 to help get it off. I had a bucket of soap water sitting next to me also, and would continously dunk the sand paper in water. This will help it sand smoother. After you get a good bit of the texture gone, pic up a variety pack with 220, 320, etc and start working your way down. You will know when it you can lay that first coat of primer. Good luck.
