Rescued attachment ABCD0013.JPG



Hi there Jasper,
I would like to ask you if the alcantara fabric that you have used is with some amount of foam on its back, or just the fabric itself? And the other question is - how do you treat the curves on the dash - heat, steam or just stretch it? I just drilled my dash yesterday and it is ready to be covered, but i do not know what fabric to put - with or without foam. Any advice will be highly appreciated.
Regards
Yavor


Yavor,
Foam has the advantage that looks better around corners, IMO, but has a couple of drawbacks, it gets cooked over time which may lead to the separation of the top layer and on open cars it retains moisture.
HTH.

Hi there,
i went with the foam one. Here is a pick of the rough stitching. I will try to sew it today with my standard sewing machine and clue it to the dash.
Regards
Yavor

Picture above is it at the Autosport show a couple of weeks ago. Car is still being built but should be on the road for this summer. Picture is with the new carbon fibre pre-preg seats fitted, as the red Sparco seats have been sold.

Thought I'd post my revised dash now I've finally finished it and the car is up for sale. The dash was the most enjoyable part of the entire build for me probably because I didn't need to ask as many questions.

That's really nicely done.

I noticed it on your ebay advert, and thought it must make the car very sellable. Good luck with the sale.

^ Nice work, Gordon!
My dash isn't in your league, but to continue the "steering wheel is on the wrong side" pictures:
Description
Description

Description
Description

Dash panel is a piece of aluminium sheet, covered in CF-look vinyl, or as we say at Team Slotus, "Carbon FiSticker Construction."
Autometer gauges, with angle mounting cups to tilt them toward the driver, who probably won't look at them anyway.
Switches, L to R: Ignition, push Start, Fuel Pump, Water Pump, Rad Fan, "Extra." (That last might become a "fan for footbox"

Both pictures show that "glow" around the gear shift knob. Demonic possession, perhaps?

JDK
