If it looked the same as the first pic I would be really pleased Mate. However, it's really yellow and matches asolutely feck all else in the car  :sad:

Emailed the company to see what needs doing to rectify the problem  :cry:

I sent them a sample of the material I had used and told them to match it was good as they could. They didn't  :sad:

Had the dash sorted in a different colour now  :rolleyes:

This has lead to an entire interior colour change :afro:



Just waiting for the black carpet to arrive and source some seats that I've decided on and then that'll do for the inside  :smiley:

Really!? After all that... crazy business.. be interested to see how this looks now.. How was the dash done, stained or reflocked, if that's even possible.

The dash was stripped and re-flocked Mate.

 If anyone is thinking of having anything of theirs flocked I would strongly recommend a dark colour  :grin:

All the beige door cards etc. were dropped off at the local tip on Saturday  :sad:
