    Made more progress on the dash in my car.

    Here is the original thread.

    Alex of Gambino Kustoms wet sanded the clear last sprayed over the flake.

    Then he sprayed 6 more coats of clear.

    Then shot the bottom of the dash with gloss black

    Pictures don't do the paint justice.

    Next, more wet sanding of the clear.

    Then candy apple red an clear.

    Will post more pics as we make more progress.

    All the pics can be viewed here:

    Looks great 50.... are you putting a matte clear to avoid reflections on the windshield?

    Thanks, No plans for matte.

    There will be candy apple red, this is just the base for the red.

    Then we will see if I need a glare shield or some sunglasses.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    But most of all, Thanks Alex!!!!!!!!!!
