W114/15 dash painting

So I didn't like the dark blue original paint and since I had everything out to paint the headliner I painted the dash.
Matte black dupli color for vinyl and plastic.
Few pics

It looks great! Did you have any cracks that you filled before you painted it?

Did you use an adhesive primer or is it incorporated into the paint, being made for plastic? Neat!

There you go! Nicely done! Another option, if you have a racked dash, is to buy a dash cap off eBay and paint it a color of your choice before installing it. Mine came as black (I left it that way) and the fit was perfect.
