The nice part is I do have it out and accessable..
Krylon high heat BBQ paint. Beautiful finish IMO.
Well bust out the burgers and hotdogs! That looks good!!
Crap I hope you got my edited edited version? My damn voice command said didn't look good LOL
I reckon that way in the in the hot summer sun you just set your burgers and dogs up on the dash? LOL
I like that look, from one angle it looks satin then another unless it's just the light looks flat. Nice job.
Green is nice.....
Green was nice when everything else was Green. Although I haven't been able to find new visors or seat belts yet so they may match the green LOL
Green rules. End of story.
Not sure why I said DuPont, here's my go to black paints ...
Man, it depends on what you are after, I have seen posts where people pull the factory paint chips and get the stuff mixed. On the cheap, I would go with a satin black, Rust Oleum or Duplicolor. i would use enamel for the hardness, and do a couple of coats and let it dry/cure for a few days.
Parts of the interior that would cause glare for the driver were flattened by the factory a certain amount. You want to get technical get the factory pint chart chip, on the back is recommendations for that years models. I would personally do as post #37 reccomends, satin....
I used rustoleum textured black for my dash. It worked great. Just practice with it first. It works best if sprayed in light fog coats to get the even textured effect. I asked the question to my brother, he had the answer on one of his camaro forums. Apparently the 69 camaro models had textured paint sprayed on the top part of the dash.
I would assume that the textured paint helps with the glare?
Yessir. Its kinda matte in sheen. Not shiny not flat, but gives it the factory texture. Since i had done mine and sprayed over gray sandable primer, Id actually recommend priming, then shooting the part in flat black, and then spraying in light mist coats the textured black over that. This way you dont need as much to get the textured effect. When done it looks like the factory black.
I have never tried it, but I bet it is a somewhat flattened back. People miss the point on interiors sometimes. Notice the interior colors will always be several different shades, and the upholstery many time is different shades also.
The way I figured it a rattle can job is going to be a rattle can job. I know there's special lacquers or chemicals or however they do it these days. I don't think a rattle can and a car paint are going to end up the same anyway you cut it. So I just went with this cheap Bi-Mart paint and hung my Dash up in a tree and painted it. If I showed you a picture of it close-up it would look like hell! If you just sat in the car you'd say that doesn't look bad. Actually it looks pretty clean. course all this like my car could be just a mock-up getting the parts clean painted assembled and disassembled for that big day when you can afford 10K for a paint job! LOL and I do mean LOL! (That is me never having 10K for paint) or actually being able to justify it! Honestly in a couple winners I may just rip the car completely back down learn how to do a little bit of body work rent a booth at a paint shop and give it a shot. I think the prep would be no more than ding repair at the worst. And I wouldn't worry about blocking it too much and getting way too crazy as I'm just doing a first-time paint anyways on the cheap.
It can be sprayed nicely with rattle can. My 67s dash frame was rattle canned with the texture black. I took my time to get the texture even, and it looks fantastic. No flaws. That is the beauty of it. There are no heavy spots and dry lines, because the whole thing needs to be sprayed dry to get the texture. I am OCD about shit being perfect, this turned out perfect.
While you disagreed with me. I 100% agree with you that it can be done to look very nice at home and as we all know that's 90% in the prep work. I mean I may be over OCD as if I can't have it sanded down to perfection and painted in a proper paint booth it'll never be correct! So if I have a scratch here or an imperfection there it kind of helps so I don't go completely nuts. I found that if I don't have anything a hundred percent completely nice I don't have to worry about it as much. Lately I've been on a clean and orderly kick more so than perfection. Perfections got to be perfect and it's going to stay that way or it's never perfect. LOL what? OCD not me!
Its called a "suede" finish on the metal dash. Not flat, satin, etc.
I am OCD, but there are always flaws in every project. Usually the one doing the project sees them, but most others dont. I had a hell of a time with mine, got a couple nicks in it upon assembly, and for some reason could never get the ashtray to line up without trimming and washering the hell out of its mount to position it right. Next time i do this i will pre fit the glovebox door and the ashtray. However 67s glovebox hinges are a bit tough to align straight compared to 68 up. Plus i added a light package to my 67 and used a 69 up ashtray mount for the light assembly. Not sure if the dash changed a little between those 2 years. Thats what the beauty of the textured paint is, there were some small flaws in the dash i filled like small dents, and a couple drill holes i welded up and bondoed, and i did not sand the crap out of the primer to get it baby smooth because i wasnt putting a glass smooth paint job. I just knocked down the pimples and high spots and roughed it up, blew it off and shot it. I primered and used straight flat black on the inside first as i dont like the bare rusty metal even on the back.
