We found a relatively good steel dash and took it to Dixie to paint. After cleaning, painting, and cleaning, painting, we finally stripped it to bare metal and painted it again. That finally stopped the fish eyes in the paint that were probably from some silicone that was on the dash from a past life. We painted the dash pad with flat black Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric coating. Quadratec sent Kicker YJ dash speakers, too.
