    has anyone had their dash flocked?

    hey guys, just wondering if anyone had got their dash flocked?

    if so, how much and where?

    i am going to buy myself an electrostatic flocking tool (along with a friend) and am going to do the majority of flocking myself - the dash however is a little more tricky and i'm contemplating getting a company with more advanced tools to do that part...

    so any experience?

    cheers

    If I ever get another stripped out car (rally theme) then I would certainly get it done.

    I had contemplated it for my car, but I dont think it would really suit.

    I had a quote of £80 to do my nova one in black.

    iirc, Mat knows a company that will do it.

    it's a sort of velvetty finish - a bit like 'pub wallpaper'.

    Can't stand the feel of the stuff myself

    Not sure of the material used to do the job, but it removes any possible glare off the dashboard that the sun/light may make

    i've seen some of the suede effect flock and i really think it'll look great - basically plannign on replacing the black plastic in my car with black suede effect flock.

    £80 is pretty good - you're a southern fairy like me aren't you? where was that quote?

    Yeh, down in Portsmouth

    Forget who provided the quote now, but Im sure it was the same people that flocked Brett Warburtons dash in his Nova (peppermint nova, quaife everything etc)

    nylon or rayon fibres - vary in length from 0.5mm to 3mm, length determines the effect (suede, velvet etc)
