I will save the elaboration of the dash itself for a later date. In the meantime, I’m focusing these posts around Toby’s custom work with the trim pieces. The goal was to apply a wrinkle finish and then paint it a charcoal grey, similar to the color found in the Spirit-R interiors.
Toby painted the other pieces as well and set them up in a white photo booth. The picture below should portray the shade of grey with accurate lighting and color balance. I am still debating if this grey is a touch on the light side, so I’ve asked spray out 2 samples in slightly darker shades.
