Does anyone have any advice on dressing up my existing dash tin for my 128 Cub Cadet? The one I have has no dents but the black is worn off in spots.Ive been thinking about free hand touch up painting but I'm skeptical on how it will look. Any advice would be helpful.

Do you want it to look stock or custom?

I'd like stock but I'm not hung up on it.
Thanks. Tom

Have you tried the 'restore to black' automotive type products that are designed for black plastic moldings that have a wax buildup or have a haze to them?

 

You can use peanut butter or peanut oil to clean it, then rubbing alcohol to clean that off, then use a black dye. Here's one that gets good reviews:

That sound like a good idea , I haven't tried anything yet just planning ahead. I will definitely look in to that product.
Thanks. Tom
