I don't know, but I wouldn't use paint. You would want to dye the dash cover not paint it. Paint will flake off. What color is it now and what color do you want to change it to?

I wouldn't use paint. It won't adhere and will just flake off. You can probably find a company out there that can make you custom dash pad cover. They're easy to find for old F bodies, but have never really looked for newer cars.

That'* what I'm thinking too. Might be tough to find a 2000+ in the junk yard, though.

What about using paint on the hard plastic parts as found in the 92-99? That should work eh?
