    dash paint

    Hi all, trying to find what color black to repaint my metal dash. I've learned the early mustangs had a charcoal black metalic paint, but not sure if that is correct for the 71-73 beasts. Thanks.

      I tried some krydon semi flat black and it looks pretty good right now. I'll check it in the morning sunlight to see if its flat enough.Big Grin

        RE: dash paint

        Currently recoloring my interior from Ginger to Black...

        While I am not sure how it will work on the glove box part of the dash, I have been using Rustoleum satin black for my back window bezel and package tray, front metal dash (that padded dash attaches to. I wanted that low gloss to reduce reflection from windshield. I have used Rustoleum Black Gloss on plastic trim, seat backs. I did interior rear quarters in satin and they turned out really nice. I did shoot them, as well as all other plastic parts, with standard primer first...

        I need to pull out my center console and paint but top area is broken and will likely replace the entire assembly. Not sure if I will shoot it satin or gloss. Need to drink some beers and think on it a bit... Smile

            Metro will mix quarts too. Just give them about a month to get it to you.

              Mustangs Unlimited sells the correct paint for the dash of our cars. I used it on mine and it came out very nice.

                SEM mixes spray cans of "black metallic" ,actually charcoal metallic, for NPD. The NPD number is VP-4464. It is a very good match.

                  RE: dash paint

                  Is the charcoal mettalic paint used for the instrument cluster different than the center guage section and the center console?

                  Mine looks regular semi goss/flat without the metalic sparkles.

                  Anyone have any ideas?

                      RE: dash paint

                      Anybody have a good source and/or technique to reapply the chrome trim on the outlines for the gauges and whatnot?

                      I have an idea on how to do it, but I'm pretty sure it won't be 'chrome' (more like silver paint) using a small ink roller (on wide pin-stripe roller).

                      My dashboard pieces are just old looking... chrome trim is dull, black paint is faded, and overall really dirty. I'm pretty sure a thorough washing will help, but that won't bring back the chrome trim. So, I'll probably wind up repainting and figuring out how to get some chrome (or chrome-like) trim on there, rather than spend another couple hundred for new plastic.
