I sprayed my dash in 2 stages, the paint was a gloss black and the clear coat was mixed with a flatner to get the 60% gloss. In front of the dash pad is flat. This was a pain in the a** and I had to paint one of the tops of a door 4 times because of runs.
The easy way is to buy a quart of rustoleum black gloss and a guart of rustoleum black flat. Also, buy a gallon of oil based paint thinner.
6 parts of gloss black with 4 parts of flat black, take this mix and add 3 parts of oil based paint thinner.
This mix goes on very well and looks great when it dries, I never had any problems with runs or had to respray. There is a gas tank paint that resist gas spills either from Eastman or Year one.
I painted my frame, firewall, top of inner fenders and underbody with 60%. I sprayed my underbody and under the wheelhouse and inner fender with 3M paintable undercoating before spraying with the 60% mix.
