Thanks, I will order the extra tubes, i know this is a key thing to do according to Chuck.
wouldn't want it coming off and looking bad. it gets real hot here in Miami in the summer months, the humidity is horrible at times. I am installing ceramic window tints next week as well.

Has anyone removed the dash panel to install the overlays. Just wondering how difficult it would be

There is absolutely NO reason to remove anything to install the kit. In fact it could lead to less than optimal alignment.

plus, aa piece came off of my install and I want everyone to know, there is absolutely no scarring

this kits gives me endless pleasure, everyone that gets in the car comments how nice the dash is and not one person knew I installed it myself

great modification as far as I am concerned

That's the one done in FL right? do you mind sharing your final price? I like how it goes all the way to the chrome vents (the do it yourself stop where it starts to concave in). PM me if you don't want to say to the public. Thanks!

DMB Supply Hernando Florida.. $200 FOR EVERYTHING. Its a freekin bargin!!
He did the switch bezels, radio bezel, emergency brake, steering wheel switches etc. It brings the interior up to another level of quality!!. Bill has the best prices on hydro dip......

You have to take all of the parts off to do the process then reassemble the panel.

Does anyone have a blueprint for the dash? I have a vehicle wraps shop and want to do my own dash-decal... Printed with my own design...
Thanks!

Chuck,

If I get another Solstice I'd get a real wood dash kit. So that would cover a lot of the area around the instrumentation. But have you ever read any posts from folks that have covered the large hard plastic area (mostly passenger side) dash? I've never seen any aftermarket solutions / kits that include this area. Have you?
