  • option 4, pull the dash, buy automotive bumper urethane filler, fill cracks, then 3M glue down vinyl from fabric store and use heat gun on warm day....that's my plan and people have done it

  • Life hack - get an overlay that ISN'T a match - it looks intentional like it was made that way. Imagine a brown overlay in the video, it'd look like it was added there to stylize the car.

  • Flocking is for the inside of jewelry boxes! SEM products hands down... the only reason it looks like it does is lack of experience, I have made dashboards look like brand new with SEM products. Light coats says " I'm a amateur stand back!" This is why people pay pros...

  • Not bad, but I would be way to afraid to make it look worse. I have big crack in my C10 dash, but the dash is blue and I think would be harder to replicate compared to a black one. Also my lazy is gluing in the inlay and calling it a day lol.

    Derek BloomDerek Bloomپیش ماه
  • Question for Joe : Wouldn’t the flocked dash become harder to clean with that fiber texture ? You can vacuum it, but never wipe it down again? I have the same concern when I seen people drape their dash with what looks like a factory made carpet cut & molded to slip over a cracked dash. It seems like once anything messier than dust hits that kind of dash covering, it would need a shampoo or wet vac cleaning.

  • Man, I might be the outlier but I didn't like any of the fixes, each one has its own perks and flaws, I've been in the vinyl industry my whole life, normally I wouod stay away from interior parts, but a thick wrap of a faux material might look better than any of these, it would still require sanding and filling in the cracks , get a smooth clean surface and depending on how flat or curvy the dash is it could be way easier and look brand new perfect. You just have to know how to stretch pull the corners and then tuck it under to get nice front corners, and anything else that won't be seen can be ugly. I might try this , there is a chance I wouldn't even have to take the dash all the out. Maybe just loose.

  • The flocked dash looks like suede or alcantara. I kind of like it. Bet it would look real nice in a luxury car too.

  • in theory, there is one more option - paint with raptor liner or similar - it will create a texture

    James HolbrookJames Holbrookپیش ماه
  • So just an idea but our need to make a silicone mold off a good part of you dash so the paint won't stick that well

  • I got a bad feeling about the flock dash. How do you clean it later? Vacuum might start wearing away the flock. Maybe you can flock it again, maybe not. I like the good at a glance, less invasive method. The whole dash remains stock. Didn't show what the sealer was. I have an AE86 dash that's cracked and lifting up like a breaking wave. To cap it I'd need to grind or cut it flat. They used to sell this leather and vinyl patch kit on t.v. that had different texture patterns you ironed over. Old cars had dash boards and you could replace the leather,vinyl or cloth easily. Always wanted to do the whole interior in Marshall amp Rolex. Have 4x10 inch Celestion speakers with the basket weave covers and white piping. It would be like being inside an amp. Vw had a car you can plug a guitar into and it came with a custom guitar as I remember.

    • I meant Tolex it's the fake leather. Darn spell check. The companies that wrap cars should get on this dash problem.

  • This gentleman really gets on my nerves. I don’t understand if the intention is to teach or be a comic video, well he is not accomplishing any of it. And if every time you are about to do something , you start by declaring that you don’t know how is it going to turn out about 100 times, and the camera just moving everywhere that we can not see what you did, all the wile you are cracking an attempt to a joke ... this is a torture to watch. Is the first “how to video” that the only thing you see is more the face of the host than the object he is trying to fix. A pain in the butt to watch!!!!

  • Now with the flock after youve finished when you run your hand across the dash does it scrape off any of the little particles?

    Brenden GarnerBrenden Garnerپیش ماه
  • Flocking the dash in a normal car with a full interior makes it look like a crappy wannabe racer. I'd take the paint option any day unless it's actually a stripped out track-car..

  • Plastic weld and flocking work great for the money. Be advised, the flock attracts dust, lint, hair and randoms wanting to touch it at car shows🧐

  • I admire this mans patience. After the 2nd failed attempt I’d probably turn a decent dash into a pile of plastic chips

  • flock looks like pile of steaming hot dogshit. looks like my goddamn grandmas shirt ffs. the paint aint perfect because you half assed it, more detail and tada. yes i have done some leather look alike detailing, so i know it aint that hard, tips and tricks can be found somewhere when you google it

  • Maybe it looks better in person, but that flocked dash look pretty bad in the video, IMO anyway. The painted one turned out way better than I thought it would. Actually worth doing. That being said, I'd probably install the overlay instead as it looked the best and was the easiest. And $150 while not having to remove your dash sounds like a great deal. Every time I remove/reinstall interior pieces I'm worried that I'm going to break something.
