    Painted dash?

    Has anyone painted thier dash? Do you have to remove it? I ask this because mine is peeling like most gm trucks do and would like to paint but dont want to take it out. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    U could, but if u don't take the time an prep, or take it out, it will not turn out the way u want it! All I have to say is, take your time, u will only be happy if u do!

    Im going to take my time and do it right, sanding and prepping but at least with the dash in i can still use the truck and just do little by little. Just wanted to know if anyone has done this so i can know what to expect.

    F you try to do it while leaving it in I can just about guarantee it'll look like crap and start flaking within a couple months. Pull it and do all the proper surface prep or buy a spare And do it on that one instead.

    If you don't have the time to do it once, then you don't have the time to do it twice.

    Just drive it with out the dash cover for a day or two.

    Just pick up a spare and paint that! You can either sell your current one after or keep it if you ever need to go back to stock.
