Lightbulb DIY: Dash Painting (Gunmetal) and Din Cover

This is for all those of you that keep asking me how to do it. Hopefully my PM box will die down, as much as I enjoy answering all your questions...

Dash Painting

1. Choose your color. DupliColor makes a good spray paint which is semi-intended to be on your dash accessories (since it says so on the can). I chose gunmetal.

Choose your spraypaint...

Sorry, I only have blue, black, gunmetal, primer, and clear.

2. Take off all your accessories. The passenger vent pops off with a flathead, for the center console, you have to remove the clock and get the three phillips screws (one behind the clock and two at the bottom of the console), the driver side vent requires you to take out the coin tray and then take off those two philips head screws, and the top two defoggers can be taken out by inserting a paperclip so that when you pull out, it will hook one of the defogger dividers and pull directly upward.

3. Use one can of white primer. No matter what color you use, white primer is a good base because most colors come out how they intended to be. Sometimes, the paint wont stick if you dont use primer. One layer should be fine. You can sand it if you want a smoother finish. I didn't because I'm lazy and I kinda like the texture thing.

4. I sprayed three coats of gunmetal onto the accessories. Don't forget to move the vents around (up,down,left,right) between coats so that way next time you spray, it will cover all of it.

5. Spray two layers of DupliColor Clearcoat top coat.

How to spraypaint: hold the can about 10-14" away from the surface, which should be laid down on a piece of newspaper. Press nozzle so it will release a cloud of the paint and the cloud will drift evenly and lightly onto the surface. Keep until you have a nice even surface. This way you won't saturate the surface and the paint won't run.

6. Congratulations. Now you have just copied me along with the other five AV6'ers on this board who chose gunmetal...Of which I copied the directions from Viper in his blue/silver scheme. (Before the board got ****ed in the ass and now has learned to run faster.)



How to create a center console thingamajig.

1. Take the Accord emblem off the back of your ride. Or buy one a the dealership for $18. Yes. That's right. $18. haha. or somewhere around there. Floss and a blowdryer works well I hear. DO NOT TAKE IT OFF ANYBODY ELSE'S RIDE. I'll personally beat your ass if I see you jacking someone else's shiet. Hehe. j/k. All in good fun.

2. You can pick up some 1/4"-thick plexiglass at Home Depot or any hardware store. Mark out the area that you need to cover the din with a marker. Make sure you have a little room larger than you marked when you cut/melt it out of the board.

3. A 99-cent store solder iron works wonders to melt the plexiglass. A rotary tool (dremel) works great too. Get some sandpaper to sand down the edges so they're flat and keep sanding until it's flat and the edges match the size of the din.

4. You can buy a small piano hinge and miniature handle to drill into the plexiglass if you want it to look clean. Otherwise, you can use black vinyl on the ends and clear packaging tape across the top to attach it to the din so that it will become a door. That's the ghetto way...which I took. Now you can put all your miscellaneous crap, cd's, coins, drugs, etc. behind the door.

5. Re-double-sided-stick-tape your emblems to it.

Here's some pics when you're done.

DAMNNN ARGH! That looks so clean. I didn't want the silver color, but that is so tyte, (I HATE SHINEY S***, IT REMINDS ME OF THE MEXICANS THAT PLAY SOCCER AND LOVER CHROME AND NIKE SIGNS), but dannnnggggggg I want to do this but I don't wanna copy you man. I like to Be OG. . But this is one tyte MOD, I love the gunmetal, HMMM I'll see what other colors they have. DO YOU HAVE TO SAND OR ROUGH UP THE DASH BEFORE YPU PAINT? OR YOU JUST SPRAY ON THE WHITE PRIMER AND YOU"RE GOOD TO GO?

Do you have any pics of the indiglo on? I can't get into your website w/o being a member. Also nice needles too, what kind are they also? Sorry just curious, I'd go red if i get anything.

DANG AS I THOUGHT OF IT, IM GOING TO KEEP MINES OG. THAT'S YOUR OG AND I DONT WANNA COPY IT, I'LL HOPEFULLY FIGURE OUT SOMN GOOD TOO.

I didn't sand anything. just spray on the primer and i was good to go. if you want, you can though. it'll be a bit smoother, but it's not necessary.

The gauges were from ebay. they're probably the same thing as These (click)

the needles were stripped off from their original paint by paint thinner and painted transparent blue. unfortunately, it's still not bright enough and i dont want to get the blue needle kit (too afraid to bother with needles) so i'm going to get it LED converted when i have a lil more time. it looks kinda ugly with the stock bulbs behind tho. sorry. here's some pics.

in blue mode...

The gauge bezel you can pick up off ebay. be careful about this one though. there are good ones and bad ones. the one i have is okay. it's thicker than some i've seen, but still not one of the thickest. just run an ebay search for "98 accord gauge bezel" and it should be fine.

yeah one of my friends' bf has cigarette burns all over his car and he painted his black. i thought about painting it black because i saw his looked okay but there was still something about it. if you clearcoat it with the right type of clearcoat, it shouldn't get dirty. this is automotive topcoat so it's similar to the coat you have outside your car. you can wax/wash it and it's decently resistant to scratches, etc. but ultimately it's still paint.

really? i havent had a problem with it at all. the light reflective blue bothered me when the sun was out and the moonroof was open, but the gunmetal doesn't because it's not reflective enough. i'll take some pics tomorrow in the sun to show you guys if i remember.

you painted it silver didn't you?? ...the headunit's a different story. damn shiny metallic flap & the organic display behind it...

i know what you mean about that wanting to paint everything though. i'm starting to get that feelin, but i really dont want to paint over the stock wood grain.

does the aftermarket guage bezel replace the clear plastic cover/stock bezel???? is there any way to seperate the plastic cover and stock bezel??

it just covers over the plastic. you can take it off with no damage anytime you want. you dont even have to unplug the gauge cluster to install them. sooper easy mod.

I wish I could have silver trim in my car but I have the retarded light grey interior. I wish it was a dark grey or black but no, light grey was the only color offered with Silver sedans. So the only trim that looks semi-decent in my car is black and wood trim. I'd like to replace the fake wood trim in with car with black but what a pain.

I agree. Damn, Honda shoulda chose another color. I'd have a white coupe if it weren't for their beige interior.

...I'd also have a silver coupe, if they didn't run out of them at the dealership that day.
"do you want an LX v6?"
"no. i want the ex."
"can you wait about three weeks?"
"no. just gimme the black."
"fine. we'll throw in the spoiler and exhaust tips for free."
"deal."

the bottom is screwed on with the star-screws.

the top is superglued on in stock form. you just need to take a screwdriver or xacto knife and pry/cut the superglue off slowly. nothing to it, it's just easier if you take the entire gauges off in the first place. you gotta be careful with it.

i had my gauges overlay replaced first so when i put on the bezel i had no problems with it. it was just unscrew it and take it off without taking out the entire assembly.

yeah sure, i almost forgot about that. here you go. i tried to take it in the sun with the most glare possible (started driving in circles with the windows/moonroof open to get the dash all full of glare)






it doesn't reflect much light at all. the HU & shift knob on the other hand...

when it doesn't stick, it because you need to use primer and clean it well.

sometimes when the paint changes color due to the clearcoat, it's because it reacts with it. i only know of some paitns that do that, but some paints come with enamel and clearcoat over it.

the pillars should be primer and spray. you can sand if you want, but i tend not to. it also comes out with that vinyl texture with the color you spray it. if you want it smooth, then you'll have to sand it.

it's made by DupliColor in a 4oz spray can. it should be in the touchup paint section of your local auto store (autozone, kragen, pepboys, etc). it's just called gunmetal.
