I too am interested in this.... for example... has anyone bought one.... does it wrap around the edges?

Hard to explain.... but the plastic parts of the dash that it sorta sits on top of, have rounded edges, i wondered if the dash kit moulded around this, or whether it was just plonked on top?

Somethine im serious about, should I be able to do it :)

Nah... its the one that goes over the entire bit around the dash... dash surround? (lol no idea :P)... its the plastic bit that goes around the dash.. the air vents... around the stereo... and around the gear stick... that bit... seen em on eBay... but unsure as to quality and coverage :)

I like the dial kits - they look smart - but i dont think the dash kit looks very good - sorry to those who have it - but it just doesnt float my boat - id spend ya money on something else hun if you can because i can see it being very tricky to get them to fit properly . :)

I agree Teegs... the one in the pic... doesnt look that good quality.. or look like it covers the entire of the dash... thats what i want....

I do liek the dial kits... but I have seen some lovely dial rings that I would like... and you cant have both :P

Might resort to spraying it... unsure :P

If it were kept in theme with other things done it'd look real nice. I dont know about o/s but down here in Oz i know a few places you can get the stock trim, i suppose reskinned is the best word for it, kinda like screen printing but better, and being done on the stock trim it would fit, you can get most finishes (carbon fiber, aluminum, woodgrain...) but unfortunately it is expensive, and permanent, so you would want to know exactly what you want or find a spare OEM Dash trim in case you got over it or something of the sort. I wont name companies here, but i think the method is called either water transfer printing or water screen printing, hope that helps someone.

I have seen loads of dash's resprayed and I must say they've all looked fantastic!!! definately worth considering, I'm tempted to do mine with a gloss black look or something, maybe even charcoal...just food for thought...Mmmmmm Food, I'm hungry, time to eat.

No problem, I've been researching sponsorship since before i even considered getting an mr2 and have found all sorts of niche markets along the way, most are performance related, (you should ask me how i could shave 150+kgs off a 1000kg car before going autocrossing... !Removed! volvo drivers eh?) but i've kept some unique styling ideas and companies put aside for when i grow up and decide to go in car shows rather than hillclimbs/autox/trackwork.
