I bought both the SVO Grey lacquer for the plastics and the grey vinyl paint. This dash cover IS plastic so should i use the lacquer,

The only difference between the paints is the vinyl paint as a flex agent in it for materials that have some give in them. A good rule of thumb is if you can dig your fingernail into it, it needs vinyl paint. Hard plastics can use lacquer. Having said that, I have used the vinyl paint before on hard plastics, and it will work just fine, but will require an extra coat or two to provide complete coverage.
