Rally Stuff My Flockin Dash &$#*

Update on Rally car.

Every since I drove a lotus Esprit in the early 1980s , I have wanted a cool rally flocked dash.

I have used Alcantera, and fake suede to cove a dash for glare but have never flocked one.

So I looked on the UK boards and read some how to articles.

The biggest thing Prodrive has, that I do not is a electrostatic painter.

So I had to do the best with what I have.

Here are the pictures.

If I am correct, it can be done well even without an electrostatic painter setup. The electrostatic painter setup helps to align the fibers though for a more dense collection.

Looks good! I'd like to fo this someday as well. If done well, it's pretty durable.

It is dry now and it is sweet, It says to leave alone 2 or 3 days, but you cannot help touching it.

I can do it with you is seem to go pretty smooth, but I have only done mine so I could not charge anyone to do it.

It's generally very robust if it's done right. I suppose it can rub off, but it should be fine for low contact areas like a dash.

How long does it take?
30+ minutes clean up, 30 minutes application, 7 Hours cure time to touch and about 4 days to fully cure.

I would use a small roller in the next one instead of a brush

Flocking is putting a poly fiber coating on dashes to eliminate glare in race cars.

not if you know what your doing, but at least an hour or so to get it all out without damaging anything.
