Do you do flocking?

You don't really need to bump every thread from months ago. Last thing we want is 20 threads about flocking in GC.

just a quikie, although it is important for there to be no silicone left on the dashboard, this isnt the main reason why the flock peels away, the fact epoxy resins will not adhere to any pp, abs or poly plastics on their own, they will only mechanically bond. I pre adhesive solotion is required to enable a chemical bond which many people simply dont use as they are un aware of it

Like above I would never do this my self. The tools and equipment my friend uses is very specialist. Perfect room for it perfect temp that all matters for it to stick and work correctly or it will just peel off. For what it's worth get it done properly.

well I've been reading up on it and it don't seem to hard to do , like anything think if you take your time with it then it should turn out good, I mite buy a old dash and do a practice but if it comes out good then I could fit it in the car this is what I've been lookin at

Be careful who you buy from, I paid £75 through eBay for one (company in Bolton) took it home fitted it (looked amazing). Car was sat in sun (like everyday is) the following day! Came back from work to find the flock had cracked and lifted! Basically they hadnt got rid of all the silicon etc from the dash before flocking! Emailed them etc to sort out a refund/exchange and almost 2 years later am still squint after several emails!

Speak to Kizzacorsab on here, he had a pile of stuff done.

you need all the gear, flock gets EVERYWHERE so you need somewhere to do it too. id expect to pay between 80-100 notes for just your dash doing
