I masked everything for some spraying

And finally some layers of white paint

After the paint was dry I removed the masking tape and let it hard out for some time.
Then it was time for putting everything back in place.
Replaced the ashtray by a chrome one that i bought on Volksworld show.
The radio mounted in place...looks like a real dash now

Dashboard

Since i bought my bus 12 years ago i always had a 'cleaned' dashboard, the previous owner had cutted a big hole for a modern radio Huilen and filled the rest with filler...
Because i didn't know what was underneath i started by sanding the dash...i felt like an archaeologist

The clean dash...bad pic

As you can see, he messed up the total dash by cutting into the grill
