Since I have my '68 Z28 laid up for a brake system overhaul, I decided to pull the cluster to have the tach rebuilt (wildly inaccurate) and to fix the dash light.
The original housing is not in the best shape...the upper corners on both sides are broken off, there's a small piece broken off the bottom and missing, and the entire housing is stained and scratched.
I know that Camaro Central sells a repop housing, but only in black but with the correct chroming, so it has to be painted.
Has anyone ever painted a plastic dash part using the paint that CC sells? I'd like to replace the housing, but only if the paint is a fairly decent match with texture that doesn't look completely out of place. Also, I'll have to mask off the chroming, and I'm not sure what the result will look like after painting.
Anyone have any experience with painting plastic dash parts?
