      Nothing too special. When the rest of the cage goes in eventually I'll probably pull the dash all together but for now I put this together. Thought you guys might enjoy it

      I used the tube applicator. Super easy! Holding up nicely also.

      Like the flocking... looks really nice.

      Unsure what you are doing with the cage, but with my MK4, the forward A-pillar bar went right where the little round vents are located (see page "who-the-hell-knows" in the signature).... I ended up moving the round vents further upstream (more towards center of the dash; about 4 inches from stock location) and sealed the end of the airduct.

      Nice work that looks really good cant wait for the final car!

      Its funny how just flocking the dash makes a normal dash look like a dtm special!

      Looks sweet. Has any of the flocking material come off or made a mess or anything like that? I wanna flock mine, but I hear it creates a lot of dust if you aren't careful.
