    go to a hardwear store or even like an Advanced auto and they should have something called "Interior Paint"
    don't use spray paint cuz the sun and heat will bake it and it will peal
    plus the smell will never fade.
    i had a friend that did it to his 240, had to replace the dash.
    good luck bro

    ah yes the wonderful dash paint, helping people lower resale value everywhere. That is one of the main things I did not want when I was looking to purchase my crx. It never turns out right painting it, it peels and chips. With time it just looks like crap. Just my opinion.

    why would you want it shinny do you plan on wearing sunglasses all the time
    if anything you would want a satin or a semi gloss finish so you dont get the glare while driving
