So I just picked up the dash part from an 2005 F-350 that has the little glove compartment under the intergated trailer brake. It is the wrong color though, instead of gray its tan. I have never really painted interior pieces with much luck, just wondering if anyone had a process to do it?

TIA

I have used this Graphite Interior Paint Aerosol 12 oz Net I have used it on fiberglass pieces to match the lower dash, as well as my overhead gauge pod and center console.

Here is a before/after shot for the console to see the differences





At first it doesn't look quite like its gonna match but when it dries up its pretty much a perfect match, plus they have all the other colors you could need.

Did you just spray over the exsisting color or did you do any prep work to it before hand?

I ended up using a degreaser on it but don't think it was necessary, mostly just wanted it good and clean. Something like windex would probably work good, just can't leave any residue on the plastics. I had read somewhere about sanding them lightly but this certainly isn't necessary from what I have seen.

I went overboard with my prep on the panels I painted. I used a green scrubbie with dish liquid to clean. After drying I sprayed with Bulldog adhesion promoter then I used the Krylon Fusion. It's a tad glossy but you can find the flat stuff if you desire less bling. I painted the kick panels to see how well they would hold up and have done quite well so far.

I think Im going to order the paint that ITP diesel has, because its supposedly an exact match(or close as you can get to it). Then I will also get some adhesion promoter to spray before hand.

Thanks for the help!
