Sweet thanks! If it's not a hassle how did you manage to paint it without ruining it?

A bit late with the pic, and sorry about the quality.

Dash was sanded heavily to remove the factory 'elephant scrotum' texture, then cleaned with prepsol and wax/grease remover.
After that was a light coat of plastic flexi primer, followed with grey undercoat and a couple of coats of satin black enamel and no clear.
The finish is pretty robust, but has chipped in a few places where I've been careless.

It'll look better when it gets replaced with a Work RS dash. ;)
