Need Tips on Painting Dash

Hey everyone out there I was planning on painting my entire dash including the bezel and everything else and I was wondering if anyone could give me some really good advice on how to make everything turn out looking awesome. I want to put a lot of time and hard work into it to make everything look good and make sure the paint doesnt crack or just look horrible so if anyone has any steps theyd be much appreciated.

Here is how I did mine last week. I removed everything I was going to paint and washed it and sprayed it with windex, then sanded it with 180 sandpaper until it was all the same dull color, then I wiped it down with alcohol to remove all other small particles, then primered it, let that dry, then paint it with about 3 or more coats of your paint let it dry, and finally spray a couple coats of clear coat on and you got a nice piece when it is dry!
