Nice video, I recently purchased a 120" x 48" order of the Di-Noc material through IDS Finishes (best price I could find online anywhere), but I intend to wrap a lot more of my interior. Good luck with your project.

Good to hear from a Tampa neighbor, Thanks.
Woah that 4 x 10 foot roll sounds like your going all the way. Best of luck with your project as well.

In a week possibly more because I might not have enough CF film for this project.

Do you think wrapping the entire dash would be feasible? I'm still contemplating whether to wrap mine in alcantara or Di-Noc.

Absolutely I believe it is feasible knowing this stuff.

I believe it is too, especially after getting my quote from my local upholsterer for the labor on doing the black alcantara with red double stitching (just the dash would be $1200 in labor). Di-Noc is sounding really good right now. lol

My concern is this area (red arrows):



The dash itself is one piece, but the upholsterer was saying he would use two pieces of fabric instead of one. Where the arrows are pointing to is the large crease that makes an indent between the upper and lower half, but it's still only one piece. I know 3M's adhesive is recommended for tight areas, but I haven't found any examples online of what to do in this sort of instance. Any thoughts?

Hmm...I hope you're right, for some reason I've always assumed it's one piece. That would make my decision 100x easier if it were two separate pieces. I need to do some investigative work tomorrow in my free time to figure that out once and for all.

And yes, more pics Jo Jo. What else do you plan on wrapping?

For what it looks like you just want to the top area of the dash correct?

Nope, both parts of the dash. Everything except for the vents, instrument cluster area, and the radio/clock/air conditioning area. I just thought it would be difficult to wrap around the crease that separates the upper/lower dash, but now that I see it's 2 separate pieces...this may just be a heck of a lot easier than I thought. The alcantara would have been amazing, but I can't justify the price I'd pay in labor to have that done. I'll save thousands using Di-Noc.
