Gloss or Flat Paint on the Dash

Recommended Posts

The dashboards were painted with a gloss enamel, a flat lacquer  will not look like the original. I painted the dash on my 40 Merc with base coat, clear coat. That has a higher gloss than single stage urethane or acrylic enamel and I have not been bothered by glare from the dash. I get more glare from my cowl vent.


My Lincoln still has the factory finish and it has more gloss that the outside original enamel.


IMHO, the flat finish would not look good.
