My Colorbond Interior paint came in this week. So I took out a small piece from the new dash I got and cleaned it up with the Colorbond Cleaner and gave it a few light coats of the Colorbond paint. Wow it really looks great. Its not exactly the same color, but I am going to do the entire interior with it so it doesnt matter. It is a couple of shades lighter TAN. The Color is#37-8381 Saddle. I really like it because its a much closer match to the Medium Parchment Seat Covers for my 2004 Super Duty Seats.
I really like this product. I first took the part and cleaned it with windex last weekend. Then After several days of sitting, I cleaned it with the Colorbond Cleaner. The Dash is made of ABS Plastic so it does not require the adhesion promoter. It only requires a good cleaning and then a pre-paint clean with the Colorbond Cleaner.
I then Misted on 3 or 4 coats letting them dry for 5-10 mins between coats. Each coat went on VERY thin and left all of the surface detail in tact. When all the coats were complete I let it sit and dry for 3 hours. Then I took this Picture comparing it to the stock color of the dash. As you can see it is quite a bit lighter than the original color, so it will not work for touching up the original tan. But for my needs it is perfect.
Then I gave it 3 misted coats of the UV Protectant Satin Clear. I think it came out really nice. I hope the shinyness fades a bit more after it completely cures but overall I really think its going to look great.
This is the color I used, all of these came from LMC Truck.
This is the Cleaner Surface Prep
And this is the Satin Clear.
I have alot of dash repair to do before I can paint it. I will have to wait till next weekend to order the stuff I need to repair the dash. So In 2 weeks I should have that all repaired and ready for paint. I think its going to look pretty awesome when its done. The finish is really good! I am impressed. I didnt think it would look that good but it does.
