Default DePaint Sticky Blk Dash and Turbo is ready for winter.

3 hours + lots of rags + solvent cleaner + tooth brush = spanky new dash. No more sticky old paints.







Thanks Sam01 bringing this turbo blanket 6000miles to Hong Kong.

Nardi - Cone suede.

Thanks Sam01, how did those Cups fit your lights?

Stealth, glare should get pretty bad. I had to remove the black paint that was on for 14 years before I do either a repaint or rewrap. But for now, I am liking it Tan.

The tan and red dashes are all one color. The black is painted on top from the factory to prevent glare. The black coating gets sticky over time, you you can strip it and leave it like this guy, or strip it and repaint it.

Its so freaky to know that I stood where your car is standing, and I even have a picture of that 350z.

The world really is a small place.
