    Lightbulb painting dash?

    Hi yall
    Just a random question i cant find in the search. Is it possible to actually paint the dashboard or be alot easier/cheaper to repalce. i have a dodgy greyish dash atm but want a blk dash? Any ideas on this?

    to do a decent job of painting it you would have to take it out, so you might aswell just replace it with a black dash from a scrapyard, there very common but make sure its not got any tears or marks.

    unless your wanting something "modified" looking?

    its alot easier than you think to change a dashboard.
