Use a platsic paint because you dont want to dissolve the plastic.

Key the surface first.

Have you thought of a vinyl wrap?

Build it up in lots of thin layers leaving each to dry and it should be fine. I've known people to use cans of plastic modelling paint to good effect.

Avoid a high shine finish on a dasboard it can be lethal in the summer.

Flat off the paint between layers as well.

I gonna use a matt or satin black on most of the dash a gloss on some of the trim, my little girl wants me to paint the dashboard black and deep purple so might give that a go, at least it will be different lol
