Haha Good luck!

One way that you may be able to do it with tucking the edges into the indention is by using the double cut method. Where both of the edges overlap one another, then cut the two layers at the same time. But, that may make it hard to follow the indention perfectly straight. Looking forward to the results! I have never been a fan of the solid color wrapped piece, it just seems too bland/bulky. The two-tone piece will compliment your car very well.

Did this change the sound inside the car? Less creaking? Rattling? Did it deaden everything basically?

I'm slowly starting to hate my interior because of how cheap it all feels and sounds. This just looks lush and velvety haha.

Are you using the same adhesive and steaming process as overland. I've been looking into this myself but can't find any of the right glue in canada.
Also, does the alcantara interfere with the HVAC controls at all?

Actually I didn't read through this thread thoroughly enough and missed where Overland used the steamer for the vents. I spent a long long time without the steamer getting it all in there. Sooo I'm going to get a steamer before I continue and I might go back to do a touch-up or two. I knew he used a steamer on the main dash, but I was just trying to rough-it I guess.

I'm using Dap Weldwood HHR cement for trim and Landau tops, which is the same yes. JPM sprays it on, but I opted to brush to reduce the explosiveness and make it easier to control. The stuff still gets tacky very fast so I plan on doing the rest brushing. I had to order it on eBay since its supposed to only be sold to "professionals".

I had some trouble making the hazard button work properly at first, but I just tightened up the fabric and now it works perfectly. The dials actually have a large amount of clearance so no issues there. I wrapped behind the vents and after re-installing them I noticed that they were getting stuck with the up/down so I actually filed the alcantara down behind the vent to make it fit better.

Are you seriously considering taking up some work in this area? I may be looking at wrapping the vents and the 'V' trim that 'arani rey' did. I had A pillars wrapped by JPM with a single pod on the driver side and red stitching that came out really good. I also added the STI lettering. See below. My wife got me the SMY wrapped gauge pod so I am thinking the vents and the V trim may just be the final touch to complete the look on the front dash. Let me know if you'd be willing to provide a wrapping service.

A pillars wrapped (for reference):

I would like to ask one question though if possible.. On the WRX cup holder section. How did you go all the way around the inside of that with a straight cut? I've been using an Xacto knife and lexan scissors to trim the stuff and I highly doubt I could hold a blade steady 360 like that. Are you the kind of guy who can draw a perfect circle in one try??

Hey no worries man, I love helping out the community just as much as I love to do the work myself. I wouldn't write all the DIY threads if I didn't want others to do it themselves. I love to see members create and do their own work.

For the WRX cup holder trim, I did do it all free hand. I'm not sure I can draw a perfect circle but I'm quite the surgeon with a single edged razor blade, lol

But seriously man, nice job on the vents, they are quite a tight stretch.

Check out Jason's Website. He sells the steel grey with that name instead of the number, 9052; Pure black is 9040. Also, Overland beats JPM by a few bucks.

I was wondering the same thing, but I have one more question to expand on that.
How do you have no glue residue left over after the cutting process. Was it cleaned off? If so what with? If not, how did you get such a clean line of adhesive.

Very nice work. I'm assuming the adhesive is something that once you've done it, it's not coming off? If that's so, once we do this it's always going to need some sort of material on our old dash plastic, i.e. no changing your mind and going back to stock?

Actually I think I might need some expert advice on this one. I had a small wrinkle pop up on my ornament panel kind of above the glove box handle. Do you think it would be possible to lift up the fabric in a small area using a steamer and flatten it out? The issue is I had to curve the fabric since I kind of lined the pattern up poorly so the bottom is not as tight as the top.

Any advice you have would really help!

We have moved away from the color names that we created over the last few years and standardized our names with the Alcantara group to avoid confusion on orders from Europe, Japan and from the US importer. All of our colors shown on our website (http://www.jpmcoachworks.com) are available in stock and ship within 24 hours of your order. You may also find adhesive available for sale within our catalog.

Color Name Reference Chart
9040 = Jet Black = Pure Black
9002 = Anthracite = Charcoal Grey
9052 = Medium Grey = Steel Grey

MY08-09 STI? 9052 is the closest available color to match your trimming.
MY10-14 STI? 9040 is the color that matches your trimming.

Regards,
Alex

Hey Jason, I finally have the top dash out and ready to wrap.

I removed the foam strip on the edge closest to the windshield.

I was just curious if you reinstalled the foam after the Alcantara or if the material is soft enough to not cause any squeaks after everything is put back together?

Hey bud, I ended up putting it back on. Any help with the squeaks in our car helps. plus it made the whole dash fit a little tighter.
Good luck with the wrapping, I'm sure it'll come out great!
