Eunos dashboard cowl – stopping reflections

3 05 2010

The cowl on my Eunos is shiny black plastic, and when the sun is bright it reflects off the windscreen.

Later models had a satin finish one, but they’re an expensive part.

I wondered what I could do about mine…

I’ve been taking the cowl off regularly whilst tweaking my dials, and thought I’d try spraying it flat black.

I gave it a wipe with panelwipe, used an aerosol of Plasikote plastic primer (black) to dust a light prime layer on, and then 15 minutes later gave it a coat or two of matte black Plastikote spray paint.

This is the result:

I’m very happy with it: it’s better than factory.
