gbshelbymi That looks really good. About the only thing I don't like about my 2010 Focus SE is the silver plastic on the dash and console. That looks like an inexpensive upgrade but still really sharp. I think I'll try it this spring.

dodgeguy I did remove the console. I think there is a 'how to' in the forum. Its not as easy as I thought, but not terribly difficult. Patience is the key. Also, I thought I could cover it in one piece. Maybe its possible, but I couldnt get it. Up in front under the cigarette lighters is the toughest. I used sperate piece in there, but you cant tell.

Thermal I've done mine with the same treatment and I get compliments on the look. I haven't done the center console yet as removing it looks like a big job. Did you remove yours, or install the Di-noc in place?

dodgeguy Heat helps a bit. If it was Di-noc that you used, the corners were probably tough. The pics dont actually look bad. A blow dryer will help make it more flexible to work the corners. One mistake I made was thinking that the heat would 'shrink wrap' the Di-noc. You dont want to do that - just get it warm and flexible. Pressure is what keeps it in place.

a1awind my experiance with Di noc is with my Buick


and its nice and frustrating

try this ...i did this in black and yellow with the dash of my old 02 focus and it got a lot of attenetion..
1. spray primer the chosen
2. piece then spray your color
3. before the color dries...spray it again with primer or flat.
this causes a cracking effect because the matte finish dries faster than the gloss. i wish i had a pic but i don't...i dunno why.

Egz This stuff was harder to work with than I thought. I thought since I had simple shapes, I would be fine, but I should have borrowed a heat gun. My crappy results:

Before piece. Was a junkyard bit, so it was scuffed up.


Compared to the piece that originally came with the car


Installed.

katiekay It looks really good man, and you also have the same shift knob as lyonsroar, well not in the above pic. Good to see that knob on a Focus, now I am going to buy it!!!

lyonsroar Here's mine in my Fusion:

Here's my experience:

I used the real deal 3M Dinoc. It took me a good 3-ish hours with a hairdryer. The long pieces in front of the passenger and to either side of the steering wheel look great. It's holding up nicely. THe radio bezel on the other hand... Well let's just say I don't really have a whole lot of confidence. The edges around the buttons and the vents are lifting. Specifically the corners of said buttons and vents. It's something I was told might happen when exposed to the hot interiour in the summer.

I've decided to roll with it for a while just to see what comes of it. Eventually I plan on taking the trim out, removing the dip, and color matching the trim to the car (silver frost metallic.)
