looks excellent mate, was it hard to remove the dash? Is there any info anywhere on removing it? I did a search on the archives with 85 pages of results most of which were references to blinky dash fixes etc.
Luke , everything Barr the dash was taken out...I didn't see the need to remove it for fear that once I did it would rattle once I put it back ..which in my case most likely would have happed for sure.
The dash was not sprayed for obvious reasons and takes well to a soft cloth and doesn't leave smudge or stroke marks...everything else however was sprayed to give that even coat.

Fantastic job Joe, you've inspired me!! Just a quick question though, what sort of condition was the leather in before you dyed it?
Thanks Brenton , the leather was in good condition with the exception of the drivers seat has a few deep cracks which I didn't bother repairing but it seems to have covered it a little.
just one thing ive been wondering that has stopped me from doing similar thinigs to my interior.
What about the plastic sections, more specifically the control panels for windows/mirrors, hazard light button, stereo knobs etc. I know you can do these with plastic primer and acrylic paint etc, but what about all the little lights and details/decals. If you were to just paint over them you wouldnt be able to see them!
Or do you just have to try and source the whole control panels/buttons from a factory black interior soarer?? (not an easy sounding option!)
