Interior dash painting on a 62 caddy

My 62 caddy needs spot painting on the interior dash. Somebody kept the glovebox door closed with duck tape so there are some nasty spots that need painting. I have never done the painting before and was hoping somebody might be able to explain the necessary prep and procedure. Thanks for any help

If you're talking about a metal dash, then you're really looking at the same procedures as refinishing any other metal piece - like the exterior.

However, there are a couple of complications assuming you don't want to remove the dash from the car.

The first consideration is going to be protecting the rest of the interior from damage. Personally, I'd remove everything I could in the vicinity of the area you're refinishing to minimize the chance of accidental damage. Everything else would need to be masked and protected. You'll need to be very careful that you cover any openings that could potentially allow overspray to seep into the dash innards and manifest itself where you definitely don't want it to - like shooting out the defroster vents onto the inside of the windshield. I suspect overspray is going to be a real problem in an enclosed area - I'd be sure to cover everything, including you.

Another consideration is getting the refinished area to match the remainder of the interior, especially of the interior paint color is different than the external body color.

Just some things off the top of my head...

The piece I plan on painting is metal. It's a manageable area where i can cover everything around it fairly easy. So should I sand the paint off, primer, then spray it on? I've never done real painting before so I was just wondering about procedure.
