Good Day guys. I love DIY jobs. Recently I've been thinking about giving the dashboard on my 91 Mitsubishi Pajero Mk1 a makeover. It's not horrible looking at all and I can tolerate it, but the metal speaker covers on either side have lost their color and I want to paint these again. But to give it a uniform look I'm thinking about painting the entire dashboard and along with it the console box and everything else. Now about the dashboard it feels like it has a soft layer of vinyl on top, and it has stood the test of time for 30 odd years. But something has melted behind the "Oh Shit!" bar and it just wouldn't come off, and that particular area looks pretty nasty.
I I've seen a few posts cautioning against painting dashboards with improper paint that would either peel off or cook under the hot sun and release toxic gases. But videos I've checked out online suggest this Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint, but can't seem to find it here in our resplendent isle.
Has anyone of your DIYers had any luck with painting your dashboard, I'd plenty appreciate any advice. Thanks and stay safe.
