hmmmm not really an expert on painting lol but id have to say if u wanna do it right, do a little sanding enough to get any type of finsh off and make the surface a little rough so the paint can stick(and make sure its clean afterwards). after u do that lay down some primer then lay down some paint. thats just to shorten it up some for u. also the dash has a rough texture on it to begin with idk if u want it like that or u wanna make it smooth, but if u wanna make it smooth id lay a thin layer of bondo on it and wetsand it till its smooth then paint it. idk what ur intensions are. but like i said im not an expert (only done a couple things on my car as far as paint). hopefully other will chime in and help where i couldnt.

also the plastic in these cars sad to say is kinda cheap so be careful lol
