Dash painting

Has anyone found a spray paint that matches closely the metallic colour under the sticky dash parts?
I've stripped the sticky crap off a while ago but I'm not happy with the finish so I'd like to key it, spray than coat in a satin lacquer.

Having read most of your project I cant believe you've not already done this😁
Something I want to do and have been thinking about for a long time. The problem is finding the right product & colour. I did consider hydro dipping but I can’t find anyone that I think can get it right.

Theres bound to be an off the shelf spray paint that's near enough or a good colour. Satin black just looks wrong

Following. My dash has been painted anthracite. I’m not happy with the finish, so want everything as close to OE as possible, but without the sticky stuffs. So I’m trying to find replacements currently. But a decent colour match would be a great option I could repaint the lot properly that way.

I stripped mine and picked up an IG post from another Clio owner where he’d used some Gtechniq C4 on the centre binnacle. I didn’t have any so tried Gyeon Trim instead and really pleased; slightly darkens the trim and leaves a satin sheen. Helluva lot easier than either masking everywhere or taking the dash out!

I would have done this but I've stuffed it up in a couple of places where the sticky layer was really stubborn

I just soaked everything that was sticky and pish in dettol overnight, scraped all the sticky muck off with an old bank card and then used a little rotary buff and autoglym to finish it all off. Looks better than new tbh

I removed the fronts off the button panel, a/c and radio to do them and also pulled the dash to get the top part out and do that too.

Best thing ever done to the car
