Just lightly sanded down with fine sandpaper and primed.. then one can of mojito and one can of clear.. If I was going to do it again, I would use two cans of clear..
After painting it did you put a clear coat on it what kind of clear coat is it and how many coats

I had the automotive paint store mix mine with clear into the can with the paint. For just dash pieces it works great. If painting body panels I’d do clear separate

Just finished putting my dash back together. Figured since I had it apart I would do some airbrushing as well. The airbag cover just looked a little to plain, like a blank canvas.

Usually not a fan of painted interiors, but those speaker grilles look good. I've thought about doing stuff in mine but it's black so color matching would be ehhh.... hardly notice i think.

Choose a contrasting color you like and do them. They will pop with the black Jeep

Turned out great.
Thanks. Not perfect, but close to an “OEM quality” finish. Lol. It looks good but since OB is so deep a color it doesn’t have the pop and contrast with my black interior like Mojito! or Punkin does.
