      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.

      Is that hockey tape for the wiring harness or something more sophisticated? (i've used hockey tape in the past, works great) Most of the time if I can't see it I just go for electrical tape. Looks great

      Friction tape I think its called. Works way better than electrical tape for making harnesses. Used to use it all the time when I was an installer at Best Buy.

      A little updated and a year later and it still is holding up great. Recently did the top of the doors to match. My CAE shifter has been on order for 4 months now. Only thing Im missing.

      Have you adjusted your accelerator pedal? It looks higher than the stock position, I was wondering because heel and toe in the mk4 is near impossible

      I sent a racing friend to your thread here to get ideas from your dash (the fibers) and he ended up with this in his Golf II 16-V
