    Pictures

    Can anyone tell me how to get some pictures of my dash in the styling guide. I've got an account with Imageshack, just need to know how to go about it.
    Cheers.

    Is your dash special enough, different enough to what is there already ?

    If yes, then either mail me or Mat the pics and we'll add them.

    Any pics of the interior as a whole?
    Those bits do look good though. Any tips on getting that good a finish?

    Yeah, they were all sprayed. The way you get them like that is take your time, and plenty of prep. Wet and dry between coats.
    If you get real close there are little imperfections, but at the mo I got to live with them. And don't rush!!!! I put the centre console back in, before it had dryed properly and the sun made the lacquer slide. You must let each coat dry. Was thinking of buying some interior bits and spraying them, to sell on. Or spray them different colours so I can change the interior when I want.

    Unhappy

    I sprayed mine last year,but as im not a pro it only lasted a year and a few weaks ago the sun made it blister! Its away getting re-sprayed now properly for pvs-and is a hell of a lot of work as the paint has to be removed,smoothed and plasticised!

    My only advise is to get some1 else to spray it if your not confident as it can become very costly in the end!

    You have to use a good plastic primer first, or the paint will peal off and blister. Also the plastic has to be well rubbed down.
    It ain't that hard, you just have to take your time. I get my plastic primer from a proper auto car place, and it's clear like a lacquer.
