its a suede kinda material that sticks to the dash and other interior parts to reduce glare from the sun. Mostly used in rallying and other motorsport.

I looked into it a while ago and there is nobody in scotland back then when i looked dunno about now tho, i cant see it because the market isnt big enough here for somone to set up a company that dose that sort of thing souly, there are ofcourse those kits you can use yourslef but the reports of them arnt worth a fuck tbh, think half the kits are about you spraying glue on your dash then sprinking the flocking material over it

The bits I'm having flocked are getting sent away down south as they're only small, what is it you're after getting done?

Yeah, luckily the bits I want flocked can be posted so it isnt a problem to me, if you had an older car you could have sent the dash by courier then fitted it once back, I doubt a dash for a VXR would be cheap, even from a salvage place.

its corsa b stuff mate, posting them down isnt really the biggest issue, getting them posted back in condition is what im worried about not had many good experiences more so with large items.

theres no one in scotland dose it all me and my mate searched high and low for one when he was needing it done for his 205, sure he ended up just sending it down to these guys - http://www.suffolkflockingservices.co.uk/FAQ.asp

edit - search for sounds of silence 205 in project build forum for pics of the dash, although im sure the pics dont do it justice
