Dash board repaint.

I started to repaint my 97 TJ's dash board with a darker grey Dupli-Color vinyl and fabric paint. I have only done the speaker covers when my dad suggested that instead of pulling the whole dash out we just cover everything in painters tape and newspaper, is this a good idea? I feel like if I pull everything out it will look much cleaner. Should we just tape it over or paint it? I have a pic of the color comparison...

Big fan of just removing everything and painting it. That way you don't have to worry about accidents or overspray.

Thanks guys I finished a little while ago and decided to leave it in ( my dad's pretty darn stubborn) and it turned out well. Looks clean an I only had a small bit of overspray from the dash to the door panel and I was going to paint it any way so it all worked out well!

Takes no time to pull everything but airbag. I used Duplicolor flex bumper paint to go from spice to black in my 97. Krylon fusion also if you want a color.
