Today I repainted the instrument panel and so far I am very pleased with the results. The finish this time is much smoother. There are some boogers in there (mostly little blades of grass/dirt) but it's waaaaay better than before. I tried to get a good picture of the gloss but it didn't really turn out.
Here's another picture of the panel. Again, I sat it over in the fuselage to let the paint dry overnight.
