Minimalists approach, without the idiot lights, switches, etc. on the gauge panel. The wring is completely new too, a Ron Francis wire works eight circuit kit. New electrical everything

Probably a stoopid question, but I was under the impression that the top of the dash was not accessible with the windshield in place. Mine is curling from the sun and I would love to recover it, what's the secret?

That 3M Super 77 may not hold up once the sun heats it up. I spoke to an upholstery shop when I was buying materials to redo mine and they told me this. I ignored them and used 3M Super 90. Within a month every valley was separated.

yup I was told the same and I went with the Lepage contact cement instead of the 3M super 77.

Not true unless you have a 964/993 dash. Based on your avatar picture you have an older car that does not have the metal tabs in the dash. If that is the case, then it is possible to remove/install the dash with the windshield in place.

I read the same thing from this board. When I went to restore my interior, I found out very quickly when I removed my dash that it wasn't necessary to remove my windshield at all. I would have saved a lot of time and money.

No not a stupid question. I was able to remove the dash pad without removing the windshield and then I did the recovering.

It will separate for sure. The 77 glue is good for carpet it does not hold up well with vinyl. I use 3m contact cement for all my vinyl. I don't remember the model of the glue but it is green and works with heat. once it is on it will never come off. I recover dashes and panels all the time and if you use the 77 you will be sorry....

Nice work

Beautiful job! I'm gonna check those gauges out, thank you. Auto meter tach was a test, its to small in dia. looks lost. I'm not sure about the silver face either, I might go traditional black with white numbers?

Any detail shots of your gauge cluster you care to share?

i used livorsi since several of the functions were tied into the ecu. and, i liked the gps speedometer. you might also consider speedhut gauges. lots of custom features available as well as color combos.
