while i wait for new motor - why not FLOCK THE DASH

So, i am a wicked cheap but i have always wanted to Flock my Dash in the Rally Car (aka Lil Red) to cut down on the glare of the stock focus finish (see pics)

So, i looked online at all the Flocking kits, services, etc. Too much.

I went to the local JoAnn Fabric store, and bought .666 yards (72" x 24") of black FELT FABRIC
$7
I bought some loctite professional grade spray adhesive
$13
I then bought an Xacto knife
$4

TOTAL PARTS $ 24



I popped out the air vents
I sprayed on the glue
i layed the felt out over the dash
wearing rubber gloves i smoothed it all out when tacky
i then trimmed all the edges

I dont know about you...but it looks BEAUTIFUL !!!!

BEFORE


AFTER


Took 30 minutes and $24
