hi all i want repaint my lj lower dash panel black so it looks nice again just wondering about all the symbols and writing how would i go about that im stuck for ideas, i rang dash original and they quoted 290 to refurbish it which is a little out of my price range

is there stencils or something i can get and paint on again ??

so any ideas would be great cheers

I bought several sets of LJ and LC reproduction stickers for that from a guy in brisbane through feebay, some thing else I did with an underdash with very good lettering I was painting was mask out the letters with tape. it's very fiddly but worked, I just sprayed it but mine was black to start with

hey xu1 kid don,t know what condition or how faded or were it is faded around the letters but i would mask the whole word up with little squares and paint over the dash , but i don,t know if this would work i am just guessing maybe put a photo up that would give us all ideas cheers billywest

this is what I did, covered the whole word but was fiddly. I used common clear stickytape and as the background is already black no worries
