Why cut corners.  The OEM paint is still available.  I should also mention that all of the survivor cars that I've seen over the years have excellent upper dash board areas.  The original suede paint holds up very well.........even after almost 40 years.

If that's the case then I would agree.  Now if I can just find someone around here that sells it.  I doubt anyone does...hard enough to get any type of paint supplies around where I live:)

This is the difference in Suede and lower dash paint...

BASF (Glasurit &RM) still makes the texture suede additive. C

Original lower dashes Ive seen have been around 50% or so in gloss.  Gloss % is often objective depending on whoever is looking at it, but they do have some sheen as seen in James' pic above.

Here's a pic of the suede top.
