I might start to paint my dash tomorrow as ive nothing else to do and sitting at this computer all day is frying my brain. But what type of paint do i need? Is the stuff from Halfrauds ok and what primer do i need? Plastic primer or will ordinary primer do? Thanks

Dave

mine needs doing - a company said they'd do it for around £80. Sounds good to me.
They will also be doing things like sticking some LEDs into the dash pod too while it's all apart.

the stuff from halfrauds is fine! I've resprayed mine 3 times now and not had any problems so long as you sand back the gunky top layer thats there now, take your time and it will be fine :D

I've gone back to black now as i had it pillarbox red and then gold... thank god i've grown up :eek:

I ve just bought the paint to do mine and i'm going to use the Plasticote stuff which most places sell.

I'm using the matt balck primer to get an idea of how matt black will look or may go satin black , but no bling!!:)

No need for me to paint it now. General Banter had a white dash on a black car so we did a swap last night, im very pleased but my girlfriend says it looks rubbish probably because the General and me were chatting out in the street til late and she got the hump.

You got off lightly, I haven't been spoken to since last night! In fairness though due to my chewing the fat with Dave, the wife had to drag herself out of bed and go pick her brother up from the airport. She got back about 0115hrs and gets up at 6 for work. I'm cooking tonight.......

No offence meant to all the lovely ladies on here but.............. It seems to be the standrad response from the female kind if they have little or no interest in one of Japans finest machines (that plus the Mitsubishi Zero that caught them sleeping yanks out at Pearl)

Andy

Do you have to put you foot down like that? :rofl:

What was the point in that!?!

Please slow down.............
