Ha my shop didn't want to touch my dash cause they say it's hard as hell to get off all that greasy stuff people "clean" their dashes with angry

I'm considering doing it myself now but I haven't made up my mind yet.

I did mine last year during the summer...it's held up pretty well, but it's obvious that it's not a professionally done job when you look closer. I didn't do any sanding, so this summer I've been thinking about doing the wet sanding technique.
