Glossy/Shiny interrior paint

Im looking into painting my dash white, but some of the paint jobs i have seen look really dull, is there a way to paint the peices so they will have a glossy/shiny coat on top? what kinda paint should i use? and what should i do before i start painting?

Thx,
-Drew

i wouldn't paint the dash too shiny, you'll get lot's of glare from the sun. I'd go with a flat white, rough up surface to be painted with medium grit sandpaper, wipe, paint primer white, then paint your dash with flat white paint.

My first suggestion would be to take it to a painter. If you was not going to color match then you could maybe throw some pearl in the mix! Second use lots of clear coat!

I painted mine white and just used a lot of clear coat and it is shiny. I lost count on all the clear coats I put on after about 6 times just make sure to let it dry thoroughly between coats.
