Those of us who are going with the black dashes aren't really using dye. We're (I and a couple others anyway) using an elastomeric paint made by a company called SEM.

So, i guess... the answer to your question is that paint is really kind of the only way. The SEM though, will hold up almost as well as the plastic dash pieces themselves.
