So....all of that 100lbs+ worth of crap on top, was yanked in favor of the 5lbs of flocked CF and fake leather on the bottom. (Cat not included).

The flocking came out OK. I didn't use enough glue on the very first piece of the dash. The others came out pretty nice and covered, though. I'm satisfied, but not thrilled. Such is the case of homebrewed experiments. Glare is greatly reduced, which was the main goal. The nylon definitely does the job out in the sunlight. I'm still glad I went this route instead of flat black paint.

That NA rumble sounds mean, I like it!! Reminds me of my buddies NA one built by Ken Gushi, it was raw a felt faster than his STI swapped GC.

Here is everything in one spot. The gauge pod is nearly complete. The stitching on the flocked carbon fiber gauge pod was a bit of inspiration from the rest of the leatherwork.

The L + R dash covers are in. The flocking does the job on taming the glare. I like how inconspicuous it looks from outside the car. That was another goal. I'll clean up more of the details over the winter.
