My ugly dashboard is driving me nuts

I have an old beater who's dashboard is so discolored due to sun damage, that it just plain drives me crazy. It makes an otherwise nasty car look worse than it should. Is there a product on the market that I can "paint" it with, that would resemble that nice new vinyl finish coat and that will hold up under the florida sun.?

They sell this stuff at auto stores.

You will want to thoroughly clean the dash.

Scuff it up with some 400 grit paper

Clean again

Spray your primer

Spray the color you want. It's basically spray paint meant for vinyl and/or plastic.

I had a Red 55 Pontiac hardtop a long time ago with a red and white interior and used the vinyl spray paint to change it to black and it looked great. Have a good one. Geo
