WTB: Euro Dash

Hello all,

I'm looking for the APC Euro Dash, preferably in Black or Carbon Fiber. I've searched everywhere and I coudn't find anything. Anyone willing to sell their set or know of any place where I could find one? I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks!

yeah you're not going to be able to find it in those colors. I think right now you can only get blue, red, yellow and white through ebay if they are still available. You can be a rebel like robbyx_209[9] and paint it black yourself

Thanks for the replies. If I have to do some painting then it won't be a problem. HOWEVER, I know there has to be one out there somewhere/someone on here might be willing to sell their set. I'm hopeful

haha...okay so I literally ordered what I wanted...twice...and got two calls back saying they didn't have it. So,

How easy is it to paint? I'm worried that I won't be able to get to the trim that wraps around the odometer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

yea, taping it off was pretty difficult... luckily i had an aluminum bezel to work with... i used it like a stencil to cut out pieces to cover the lenses for the gauges and the other displays... the 3 chrome gauge rings are actually very easy to pull apart, just pull it carefully/slowly...

i don't really have a use for the aluminum bezel anymore, so if you need it maybe you can just pay for the shipping, so let me know let me know if you need help with it, you can hit me up on AIM if you want.. good luck

Thanks for the help I'll probably order a set tonight and let you know if I have any problems painting. Thanks again!

btw: from your experience, would it be easier to paint over a yellow, red or white Euro Dash? I don't think it would make a difference, but then again maybe it does. Thanks for your help

also, any pics of your dash after painting?

well even if you dont have that aluminum piece was talking about you necessarily dont need it to cut make a template he did. You can use that black bezel that sits over the gauges to make a template like robby did.

BTW, no it doesn't matter what color you get, only in price, so get a yellow one...

Ordered! A White set is on the way

So just a quick question: did you say that the chrome rings can be removed? Also, what type of paint did you use? Did you sand it down first? Just wondering.

yea they can be removed, it's easy... ummm, for paint i just used black paint for plastics... rust-oleum brand? from home depot... you don't need to sand it down, and with the paint that i used i didn't have to primer neither...
