Best paint for top of dash?
#1
At some point I painted the top of my dash a more shiney color black. That was a mistake.

I am taking it all apart to fix a few things and such.

What's the best color/paint to use that will look good but minimize reflection?

If the dash top section is away from the car, i would refinish with a quality premixed 2pak flat black for durability.

If top is still in car, i would choose a quality premixed flat black acrylic lacquer, to avoid drift and contamination around the interior.

The only other option would be to go a low sheen/low gloss black, but the matt finish would be better in my opinion.
