use a filler primer for the first couple of coats to make sure u got all the wrinkles out of the dash. then wet sand it to make sure u have got them all out. ur dash is still goin to flex with heat and cold so try to find a felible paint that wont crake up. i used blue metal cast with krylon crystal clear on mine and havent had any problems with it

Kingkaspr hit it right on the money. If you are inexperienced or don't have access to a paint gun or the money to pay a shop to do it, then Duplicolor rattle cans from Walmart is a cheap automotive paint that will adhere to the plastic. It is always recommended that you shoot paints and primers all of the same brand to ensure compatability between them. i.e. Duplicolor, primer, color, clear.
Different manufacturers may use different solvents within their paints that might affect the other.

After your primer coat, wetsand with 400 grit. Alternate between priming and wet sanding with 400 grit until all wrinkles are removed or covered.

I replied to your other thread. I wrote a lot and provided pictures and information for you. Check it out.

And in the future try to limit yourself to one thread asking all these questions rather than several on the same topic damn near back to back.
