I know krylon fusion adheres to plastics and stuff like that but i'm not sure how it will hold up on the dash. It may start flaking or even chipping. put some pics up of what it looks like now and maybe some of us can come up with ideas for you

how did you prep your dash before painting it? You might want to consider some self etching plastic primer before painting black...

Rattlecan isnt going to last like primer and paint from a gun...Krylon fusion for plastic seems to be the rattlecan of choice.

heres what i did:

rip all the pieces tht u can out first.
then with scotch brite pad and 409 cleaner, scrub the whole dash
wipe with clean paper towel
Spray the dash one last time, wipe dry.
tape off areas that should be taped.
spray 2-3 coats of VHT vynl dye *sells at C.A.P for 7$ a can
let dry
put back together
