Holy Smokes !!
Wow.....super impressive job! So
many of us have been asking how to
remove the dash....and you've
already done it....wish we had some
On the colour...I'm surprised that
the black was giving you such a bad
reflection. I have that typical ugly
brown and it doesn't reflect so
Hmmm....maybe Ferrari chose that
colour for a reason...not that they
got it in a bulk sale or something
I think black is better looking but
I still think you will have a
reflection problem no matter which
way you go. I have a black dash on
my Lamborghini with no reflection
In the Lambo, the dash sweeps away
from the windshield. In the TR, the
dash is straight out from the
windshield. The straight dash with
the angled windshield will always
give you a reflection.
If you go with the suede or
alcantara, the rough surface will
hold dust and eventually will show
up a white patchy shadow. In Florida
we have a allot of dust in our dry
You can see it on the leather dash
and it constantly has to be wiped
I don't have any shrinkage on my
dash but hate the brown that I want
to pull the dash to change it. I too
face the same dilemma of
conditioning that area around the
base of the windshield.
The only thing I could come up with
was a carbon fibre surface piece. I
know, I know...carbon fibre in a TR
doesn't go but what else can resist
the sun, not fade or warp and not
need any conditioning.
I don't know if they make a "less"
shiny carbon fibre.
Do you have any removal tips for the
Freeze...Miami Vice !
