8 Striping the vinyl dye with laquer thinner and alcohol. Not to be confused with a fine bourbon...
9 Lots of work to remove all the old stuff. You can see the original base vinyl beneath the color coats. It's nearly $350 for a new LH dash panel, so well worth the effort to restore. Don't shoot the dye formula in cold weather, as it will dry to a dull flat finish. Don't ask me how I know!
10 Lots and lots of paper towels and solvent if the dash panels have been previously recoated.
11 This is the vinyl dye primer. A must before shooting the dye paint. What that means it's a urethane with a flex agent, just like you would use for vinyl bumpers. It's mandatory to keep the dye (paint) on the flexible components from cracking or flaking.
