Do it! There's still the 3rd wave of applicants left. If you do make it just let me know and we can show together. It would be nice to have two boosted BO IS300s together

Dash is finally back in. It's not perfect but it's alot better than the melting I had before. I'll probably redo it in a few years, but for now I'm satisfied

I can't tell, the pics are weird.... did you suede right over the airbag? What about the bar thing under it, that goes around the vent? That's the part that's suddenly sticky on mine. Looks good!

Yeah sorry for the crappy pictures, iphone quality sucks.

Everything is covered in suede except for the top portion which is the leather/vinyl material. Also yes I went right over the airbag cover with the vinyl because when I made it in two pieces it was too thick to put the cover back on. However on that side the vinyl is only glued on, so if the airbag deployed it would still work without any problems.

I'll take some better pictures tomorrow after I clean the car. It's filthy after sitting for 2 weeks

Ah so you left the original vinyl on up there, I thought you removed it all and replaced it with suede.

Honestly it would look alot better if everything was in suede. I would have been able to make the airbag cover a separate piece. The suede was alot easier to work with and it wrapped around corners easily. The downside is that it will probably fade within a year so I put vinyl on the top portion instead.

I'll see how it holds up, but like I said its not perfect and if it bothers me enough I'll just buy a new dash. Either that or take it out again and redo it.

I might redo that portion, but then again I hardly carry any passengers anyways. I never had a girlfriend, and my friends know I hate driving people so yeah

Probably not, it's too much of a hassle with the cup holders and the area under the armrest. Besides to me it looks fine the way it is, its not perfect but it'll hold me off from doing anything to it for now

Also here's the pictures I forgot to post up after I cleaned it

Honestly I'm not a fan of suede, but it came out alright, although I would've love to see it all in leather vinyl...

I personally think that the suede came out a lot better than the vinyl stuff, but you already described the difference in workability between the two materials. +rep! (it actually worked lol)

Still waiting for the tokensolutions o2 delete to be back in stock before I place my order for engine management and gauges, but in the meantime here's some pictures from Mayday Garage's "Coffee & Rice" this past Sunday
