dash cover finish recommendations
Have been tied up with lots of health and home maintenance stuff and haven't made much progress, but now that taxes are behind us and the weather is a bit warmer, I'm back at my restomod project (link below).
The dash cover is a very complicated part of the project -- 5 inches of the leading edge of the plastic and all the accompanying structure were removed/rerouted. That combined with the repair of the airbag & HUD openings and the proper method of finishing final surface has me writing this thread so that I get all the opinions before I f this up... LOL
As you can see in the last photo, I have figured out how to weld the plastic (TPE, TPE & TPO are now considered the same??), well kind of anyway; it will look better when sanded.
Was thinking that after I get the top and bottom structurally prepared that I would prime and do a flat black stipple to somewhat match the rest of the dash and door panels. My test of this looked pretty good, but I also have checked out having a leather wrap.
Here are some pics and look forward to your comments, opinions and of course, criticisms.
Here's a link to my 2014 Camaro SS donor to 70 Malibu restomod project:
