Default Making Dash more glossy?

Hey fellas, so i've had my dash and whole entire interior painted with Krylon Fushion Satin Black and accents in Blue for a year now and was wondering what I could do to make it have a bit more glossy or smooth look or even feel to it, i like"ish" the flatter black look but kinda want it more flashy as i said.


I was thinking either clear coats on top? (3 or 4 coats)??
Going over it with Gloss Black?
Something else?


Thanks Boys

Don't make it too shinny. The reflection on the inside of the windshield will drive you crazy!

R-M, Dupont, PPG, Nason n more, all have additives you put in the clear to create a flat finish. Personally R-M works the best, depending on the "flat-ness" per amount of additive. you can create flat, semi flat, shine.. or any level between those.

TRON
truck looks good, just think you should have flipped the colors, black with blue accents, black truck n all....
viewing your other pics took me back in the day, we use to bend our antenna like that 15-18 yrs ago.
