Matching Dash Paint to Engine Plastics
I have my dash painted the transparent candy apple red which ends up looking kind of burgundy. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what engine plastics paint would match the color???

No, because it wont stand up to high temperatures. It was model paint.

check for some high temp paints for the closest match. This is all I can suggest. Maybe even go to a paint shop or even a body shop and ask them what they think. Sorry I can't help more. Good luck with it.
