I was really tired of the glare from the infotainment bezel reflecting onto the windshield, so I looked into flocking. While I wasn't up to the challenge of taking apart the whole dash, the bezel was actually pretty easy to do, and helped a bunch both in daily driving and while on autocross courses on sunny days. I did it this spring, but thought folks here might be interested. I got all the supplies from flockit.com. It was my first time doing it, so the results aren't perfect, but I'm pretty happy.

Nice work! I went with the cheap and easy option, and bought a dash cover. This looks awesome though.

I wish that someone made either a REAL alcantara, close fitting, dash cover, or at least one that could pass for a real WRC style 'flocked' full dash cover. [:(]

But that looks GREAT Pablo! [thumb]

What's that white stuff outside? :ROFLMAO:

Good work, but you're right, there's no way I'd want to do the whole dash.

I really want to do the entire dash aside from the trim one day, it's a cool look. Does it feel fuzzy? What's the texture?

It's very slightly fuzzy, like if you could paint something with thin velvet. I guess they flock jewelry box interiors with the stuff?
