    polyester resin doesn't stick to plastic, sand the dash down and remove as much grain as possible, then apply a high build primer over top (not the spray can primer either) sand that smooth and you'll have a glass-like smooth dash

    it depends if the panels are hard plastic or soft or rubber.
    if its hard plastic you need to sand, lite, you dont need to go nuts. Then clean them thoroughly take your time especially if you like armor all. Let them sit in the sun, nice n hot, some scuff stuff on a scuff pad and water and scrub them. To fill them a high build primer will work. Theres sprayable polyfill that builds up really nicely, but it needs a spray gun with a relatively large tip.
    Ive never tried to glass doors/dash that were soft/rubber, i always thought just taping the piece up and making a glass cover worked fine, like if you wanted to do sections of your doors.

    That is what to do if the pieces are gonna remain in the factory shapes.


    If your gonna change the shape of something or add pods or something, then you need to do alot of different things.

    How about posting a pic of the dash/doors and a description of what it is you ant to do to them/
    That is how you get the answers you want.





    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
    the sweetness of that cheap price!
