Oooooh.

How much of a pain is it to keep this clean?

not hard at all! The surface is the closests to velvet that you can get. As far as cleaning, if it gets dusty, you can use a smaller type vaccum to clean it, then slide your hand over it to take out the vaccum lines. kinda like playing with a velvet couch :)

yes sir, we can. Although, if the dash surface has a porous surface to it, it will have to be sealed before we can apply the adhesive or else it will suck it down and give the fibers nothing to stick to :( We just recently flocked a 911 dash for one of our buddies at Rennline here in Milton, that was cracked, broken, sun baked, etc etc. We used epoxy resin to fill in/seal the rough surface, sand cleaned and applied the fibers to it, and it looked like a brand new dash. wonderful stuff! will get more pics soon!

Thanks,
Dylan

Very cool, I have 2. I think both have cracks. Next time I'm up in the area I'll drop atleast one off!

Not at all! I do have to warn you though, that I just ordered more fibers today. Hopefully should recieve them by the end of this week. If this doesnt line up with your plans, You could drop it off, and I can carefully package it and ship it back to you. Just let me know!

Thanks!

Hi Dylan, sorry I didnt swing by. I took a look at the 2 dashes I had and they were really bad (rusting out from the back).

I'll pul the dash from the Yellow X someday and swing up.
