Alcantara'd the top half of my dash by kai herb

kai herb
Well when i say "I" i mean that i had a fair bit of help from my wife (ie all the fiddly bits :D )

I used a walnut dash from a 75 ,can of heavy duty spray glue and a sheet of Alcantara seat fabric.I suppose it took a couple of hours covering the dash and replacing all the vents etc and maybe half an hour to swap the dash over.

Actually it was a fairly easy mod to do.

Not too shoddy if i say so myself :cheers:

Ive also just added the fabric to the eyebrow above the radio as it looked a little odd.

That looks surprisingly classy and certainly well-excuted in the fit and finish of the dash. A good job well done! :) :thumbsup:
