Didnt mean to start this project, but too far gone now!

So I have been toying with the idea of painting some interior parts. I would never have the heart to spray paint a $45,000 truck in less than a 6 months of ownership, but after looking at some videos of others who have painted their interiors with Plasti Dip, it looks to be completely reversible, so i figured, why not, I can see how it looks, and if I like it, get it painted for real later on down the road.
I picked up a few cans, that was step one... I have been sitting on them for a few days now, still entertaining the idea, looking at them, but not straight in the eye. Then today, I was weak... I figured, it wouldnt hurt to find out how easy it would be to get some dash parts out, just in CASE i THOUGHT about actually painting them... the vents popped right out... oh no.. its too easy... the first... second... then i saw the entire dash just coming right off... uh oh.... ok, well I have not done anything yet, maybe ill just see how easy it is to remove all the dash pieces. 10 Min later.. crap. Ok now its 7:30, way to late to paint anything...

Thats what I said an hour ago. This is what they look like now. I went to far!
A little "blotchy" as they are still drying. but its too late to keep them outside anymore, brought them in for tonight, and will throw another coat on tomorrow. I think they will look good when dry.

Yes.

The paint from the first spray didnt turn out so well.. peeled right off in 10 min and i just did some more coats. It looks alot better now.

FWIW, It peeled right off, however it did take some of the "flake" that was on the dash. So if you are not 100% committed to this, it will ruin your dash piece. Maybe ruin isnt the right word... but it will not look the same. it will lose part of the sparkle...

Thanks. It looks a lot better if you could see the entire interior. The carpets are black. Other trim etc. now that I look at the pix the black kinda stands out. But all in all I think it looks good
