I would really like to do the dash pad as well, painting the defroster vents, speaker grilles, and AC vents gloss black as well. I just worry about the edges around the ac vents, and grab handles on the A pillars, as there is no way to "Tuck" the wrap around the panel. IMHO the upper dash panel is an eyesore on the SRT grand, covering it with the Neffywrap , and doing the Nav bezel and Instrument cluster bezel in black leather with a nice stich along the front would finish it off nicely.
My ride is the one with Di-Noc and (unfortunately) not the SRT8 with the neffy wrap.

It sure would be a tight fit with the grab handle and you might have to trim the plastic of the handle. I do not know about the neffy but with leather you could use a really sharp knife to trim the thickness down to the derm just at the edge trim. Works on some vinyl faux leather fabrics as well. Worth taking a look.

For the dash part I hear you loud and clear and have been looking into the issue for a while as well. Let me share some thoughts on implementation:

Air vents: I have not yet seen a dash upholstered to cover the air vents on the sides of the dash but its been done for the nav bezel vents so I do not see why it could not be done with the appropriate materials and skills.
The best finition IMO is the che one for which the vents have been painted as you were saying.

Edges around the air vents: it requires a fair amount of skills I am told but the trick is to sew the end of the covering material to fit directly within the little crevasse and glue it there.

Instrument cluster bezel / nav bezel: If you use something like a neffy wrap you will experience a very tight fit for these bezels and I do not think you can upholster both the dash and the bezels without serious fitment issues. There is also a lot of fine work to do around the area where the instrument cluster clicks back into the dash. Take a look.
Sun reflection: If you put a more reflective material it might have a halo effect on your windshield. I have put some pieces of Di-Noc on the dash and been driving around for two weeks now and its not a problem but you might want to check as well.

Heat: It can get real hot on the dash and the 3M 77 or 90 spray glues and the likes will not hold. You need the special 3m high temperature upholstery spray glue of any of the DAP high temp ones.


This is a german company and they are asking Euro 1550 for the dash alone including the two bezels and they explained that there is a lot of work to do both dash and bezels. Euro 5,300 for the whole thing ...



Not sure what's up with the pink but again nothing for the vents and speakers which ends up looking pretty incomplete.


Suede or maybe alcantara ...



The che one on the bench,


and back in the jeep. Notice the painted vents.



Done last week on mine, its a test fit but it works as a proof of concept that you can do the vents as well. But the plastic is not the best for tack and the 3m 77 that I have just does not cut and the part above the vent does not hold. Need to figure out how to get some better glue to Kosovo

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

As for the A pillar, I don't quite understand. I had mine off, and it looked to be 1 piece? Or am I missing something? Also, do you know how big of a job it is to remove the upper dash panel? I would really like to re cover mine. I'd want to do it like the maroon and grey one you posted above. I could try to help out if you need to get some adhesive shipped to Kosovo. I deal with a local upholstery supply house here, and could probably get what you need from them, I just don't know about shipping glue overseas. I could look into it if you would like.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

This is the website of the place I deal with, they are local to me. They may be able to ship stuff to you directly, if not let me know.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

Thanks for offering to help with the glue but I think I got it covered. Its just that the Military post will not ship aerosols or liquids.

For A Pillar, check out this post from Bobpp

Attch is a recall instructions on dash removal from an 08+ but I understand that its the same process for the 05-07

I was wondering the same thing, could look better IMO. I checked out yesterday and do not see why not although you would need to do some kind of custom mounting bracket ... I think. Anyway, a bidding on one right now. The first one who figures it out lets the others know

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

I think you could because i saw on another one of your interior threads a SRT with a NAVI on it and the BEzel was the stock one not the NAVI one im sure its something a dremel can do a lil bit of cutting and it would be good lol ok let me get my indash first then i will try it out do you have your indash??

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

Thanks Jaybee ... I like the look but cannot help to wonder if one could take it one step further and if an 08+ dash swap is possible.

I want to do this exact thing in my 07, but I was also thinking to see if an '08 bezel would fit in here. I bought a Stock Magnum SRT8 Nav Bezel and used it in my Magnum SRt8 that didn't come with NAV and it worked just fine. The bezel was the only changes I had to make to get a Factory Nav into my Magnum SRT when I had it, so I am thinking a simple bezel swap should work here. Let me see if my buddy with a factory nav in his '10 will let me pull his off and test fit it on my jeep.
