Thanks Purple, I really don't think it's going to be that tough to get right. Just need to be patient.

Found a couple more good DIYs if anyone else is interested.

So I hadn't been in my car for a few weeks...

Lol the dashboard is so small this shouldn't be that hard! Got used to the chrysler 300 dashboard which is wayy bigger lol.

Didn't get a chance to buy material over the weekend and now I have to get the car in the shop also among other things so >project pushed back> Also weather sucks. Doing it in cold might not be good cause stuff expands then when it warms...then again you're pulling it out so you should be fine.

I did a similar job when I had my 350z. I alcantara wrapped the headliner, A-pillars, B-pillars, center armrest, and some other interior parts to match.

The most difficult problem I foresee on this dash job would be those complex curves, particularly the ones in the corners around the gauge pod and display. Those will be tough to get perfect without any wrinkling since the fabric doesn't have any stretch (at least mine didn't). Without doing stitched seams there, you'll need to cut slices or wedges into any fabric that gets wrapped around the backside of the panel.

Not sure what adhesive you bought, but I used 3M Hi-Strength 90 spray adhesive. It handles the interior teperatures far better than the 3M 77. It lasted 3+ years before I sold the car, I can only assume its still going strong.

If the interior doesn't work out, you can always try the exterior....

Cant wait to see finished product.

I got a quote to do mine in leather here in Toronto. $850 including materials. A lot for labor and Re/Re I guess.

It does transform the interior though.

Taking the dash apart now. As I thought, it's really NOT easy.

Also tried to install my red seat belts. After taking all of the side interior trim off, and looking at all of the warnings and connections on the existing belt hardware, thought it best not to touch anything. It works well now, and I'd like it to stay that way. Anyone want a set of front red belts?

Don't be a beta, follow the WIS and you'll be fine. You'll appreciate them when it's done.

Do you have the WIS? Because the laptop I had it on is dead. I'm currently doing it by poking around and pulling things until they either come off or break.

Awesome thanks. I was just installing my EPC/WIS on another computer and it was taking forever.

If you get a chance can you run it for the upper dash too? I'm starting to break things.
