Crash Pad vinyl covering help

PostPost by: gearbox » Tue Oct 04, 2016 2:35 pm

Mike;

Yes, that is who I am corresponding with and the one I received my GT6 dash cover from. The leather is nice and thin so it applies easily and the workmanship is good. The GT6 has a dished area in the center of the dash and the cover I have has two seams like Gordon mentioned. So it makes sense that it may be a economy thing, but I'm sure he could do it vinyl or maybe even in leather without the seam. I told him to expect a note from you. Real nice guy. Also as a note, make sure the dash structure you have is perfectly smooth as the leather will show up any imperfections. I used something called Polyflex for dashes that applies and sands like bondo to fix all the cracks and bumps. The product has a give like foam so it feels right. Using foam padding will make it look too fat and unoriginal. Good luck Allan
