I Like the Color combo and stitching ! If the Red part had a different fabric it would be better in my opinion. :)

I was looking into this some time back myself and had talked to a couple shops. What I got in most cases was that it is rather complex due to the fact that the whole dash area is of one piece and that the surface areas are relatively complex in shape and angles.

I had read on a couple forums from DIYers that it was not all that complicated because, if you choose the right fabric, for most of the surface its stretched and glued with only a few seams and that seems to be the case from your pictures ... do you have pics of the dash on the passenger side ?

IN any case, you would need to remove the entire dash part to be able to wrap the whole thing and that's no small undertaking but one you would have it out, this is what it would look like for an 05'

A lot of small details to get it right

Does anybody know about a guide to take the dash out ?

Awesome Pictures ( rvtifer ) !!

I wish Some one would have the guide to taking the dash out.

I am thinking about taking my dash out and painting it Black. I have the same interior color ( as the Pictures ), and i think it doesnt suit my new paint job anymore.. but i am afraid to go into that mod :( . i havent made much research about dying the carpets, changing the headliners, pillars, and dying the leather seats yet :(

I have taken out my S-10 dash out a couple of times, but it havent settled perfectly in its OEM place as it should everytime i install it again.. its hard work.

For the dash. I would look carefully of the risks of chipping the paint, the dash is not all that hard in some areas.

Another option would be to get a good vinyl on it and before you dismiss the idea up front, please try to get a first hand look, as in touching, the 3M DI-NOC architectural finishes (http://www.idsfinishes.com/gallery/). There stuff is amazing and they are printed in 3d so there is a texture to it. They even have suede, carbon fiber and several leathers. They were at SEMA this year as well. Problem with vinyl is that you will need a primer so it can bound to the dash and, once primed, there will be no going back.

A third option would by hydro-transfer. That will last for ever and have a perfect finish. If you do not know the process, take a look here http://www.waterprinting.com/ you'll see a dashboard. I know several SRT8 guys have used patterntek (http://www.patterntek.com/) for some carbon fiber printing and everybody seemed happy with results. Its unidementional and it will be challenging to find a place that will be able to do the entire dash. It will cost you too.

I read that carpets are easier changed but dying them seems a better way to go IMO. Pillars and headliner have been done before and is easy and "relatively" easy. What is the color of your visor, handles, center console light ... you might have to look into this too and those can be painted.

The seats are not leather, its simili, at least it is on my 06 Overland so you could always check http://katzkin.com/main.html for a paid of leather seats. Have never seen any first hand but read only good things about them.

"JUST DO IT" is the message to you from the guy who didn't :lol:
