I think it looks cool 8) Would love to get it done BUT I hate the feel. It's one of my many pet hates :lol: :lol:

I think it's a hard job to do right, could be wrong but to do a dash right it needs to be out of the car :?

I was thinking of doing it a couple of weeks ago but have decided on a full alcantara retrim during the summer

I saw reviews saying the flocking is hard to keep clean and can get crap with time and not suitable for everyday cars :?

not my cup of tea, cant see it adding to the appearance of the car, it works for track/rally cars but not everyday cars

Looks like a good job, was the dash much work to get out?

I thought the same, but not too sure now as the gold trim adds contrast to the black flocking.


Heres some fitted pics:

The dash isnt that hard to get out, just be methodical, its was harder for me cause of all the extra wiring lol. took me about 3 hours but ive had the dash out a couple of times before so know what im doing.

that came out well as the others have said the clocks and the extra dials sets it off wouldn't suit an everyday car as it would wear and would be hard to keep clean and tidy..
looks well though all the same..
