The Interior

Gauge Cluster

Before the carbon fiber conversion

Interior

Stereo

And after...

The Leather wheel cover..

Various pics of my installed carbon fiber kit; which finally got done!!!!

I bought the kit from Autodash.com; and I highly recommend them. They were very helpful; and the kit actually arrived way ahead of schedule..





Above two pictures are when I pulled out the seats to deep clean the interior in Spring 2003. Also shows the carbon fiber dash

How it was done

It was actually a rather involved process to apply the trim pieces. The first thing was to wait for a warm, sunny day (this was teh real hard part as it was ordered in March! :). I then laid out the pieces on the dash, shut the windows up, and let everything bake. Once done, I cleaned all the surfaces to be covered with laquer thinner. Stinky! Next, I cleaned the residue off with isopropyl alcohol. After that was comleted, it was time to apply the supplied primer. It came is a little tube that had an applicator brush on the end. When that was completed, it was time to attach the pieces. I peeled the backing off, exposing the 3M adhesive. Its very sticky stuff; so you only get one shot. Eyeing it up before hand helps a ton. I removed the HVAC/stereo trim cover and did that whle it was off the dash; since the pieces were so thin. The ease of removal helped in that decision as well :)
And that was it..all told it took a couple hours. Put it this way; I got home at 12:30 that day. I washed the car; and then decided it was time to tackle this; and still finished it before dinner :)
