I just bought some paint for the hard plasic arm rests, paid alot of money for it.It is the same code as my exterior paint. Is it possible to use this paint on my fiberglass dash. What kind of paint is used on these dashes. These plasic paints dry quickly.

Well; I assume you know that the dash top is supposed to be covered with pleated, padded Vinyl, because I saw the one you tore off! If you insist on modifying it by painting it since this is a mild (I guess, custom anyway) they were painted with ordinary exterior Lacquer automotive paint. Or do you mean the lower portion?

Right, I am talking about the lower portion, the pad you saw in my other post is actually material I had that was made for the dash pad. It is not dyed. The dash will be the same color as the exterior of the car. Yes this car will be a slight custom I have a stock, original none altered studebaker.
