Rhino Line padded Dash

In an effort to recoat my original padded dash I was wondering if it would work to have my old padded dash sprayed with Rhino Liner coating. Fix and fill any tears or holes with bondo, sand it smooth then have the entire top coated with Rhino liner. Do you think it will work?

I tried to cover a picanic table with Ryno lining and it lasted about 2 weeks before it started flaking off. I would tyr a small spot somewhere else before you put it in your truck.

If you are gonna try it, youll need to do it right and glass the dash, smooth it off, spray some primer over it, and then get the rhino liner sprayed. Make sure you get some uv protectant for it or it will fade. But since you still have to glass to do it, why not just glass it and paint it? Then its smooth and not that rough texture.

My honest opinion is that it would be pretty ugly. And have fun getting that coated thicker dash back in the truck. Chances are it would fit too tight.

I talked with a guy that had his truck bed coated and he told me you can get it done in various thicknesses, colors and textures. Even smooth. I'm going to stop in their shop and talk with them, maybe do a test piece to see what happens. Hey, if it works theres a new market for Rhino liner. It sure would make recovering a padded dash very easy.

Like I said though, its not gonna be any easier than just painting it, because even if you get rhino liner done to it, you are gonna have to glass the pad and primer so the rhino liner will stick. Bedliner is just like paint, its only as good as the prep work that goes into it.
