My old original dash in our 98 Bayliner was faded & lookin quite rough. So I used some regular Navy blue satin for the base & then top coated w/ the Dupli-Color Clear Effex. It turned out awesome & looks great in the light. I’ve used the Color-Effex a lot @!it looks killer every time! Just use it on darker colors, they look better when using, white or lighter colors don’t help the Color-Effex show as well. It’s kinda spendy for the small lil can they sale it in,but damn, it looks awesome&works!
