I hated the woodgrain in my car, so I decided to paint it. I also had the gauge and A/c bezels sanded and painted, I hated the "texture" on it. They were sprayed with PPG black, and 2 coats of clear. I'm not worried about dust because I just changed my cabin filters (haven't seen dust in a long time) and I clean the interior... often. Here are some pics, let me know what you think.
