I felt like painting my 01 cowl dash. heres how it came out. since i have silver outline flames, and chrome wheels and headlights, i thought the silver would be a nice accent.

theres nothing 2 it. really easy, just sand everything down, prime it and paint it. i hardly even sanded the dash cowl because of the diamond cut. its still fine tho. i recommend using Dupli Color Filler Primer. that stuff is da ****!

it honestly is very, very easy. here is a site with the how 2, its very easy as i just said. click me once u have the front part off and time 2 take off the cowl part,(above the gauges) i recommend pulling up on the right side and sliding your finger all the way around it, that seems 2 work the best. hope this helps
