Just wait for the clear coat to dry.

Steering and the console look very good, well done!

I have painted the dash/console and sun-visors in my corona with vinyl spray and it look pretty good and holding up very well.

What paint did you use on the console?

Did you ever use the hydro dipping, i see those hydro dipping guys do consoles/dashboard as well I may consider it when i will redo the dash of my Manta but not certain of the quality of the hydro dipping, do you or anybody else has some experience with this?
