Lol. haha yeah. its arrived at my brothers house in Holland, so I still have to transport it on my place on one of my Cargo flights back to Dubai. The contents is the e30 race dash, which has been pictured before, so hopefully no surprises.

Going to use today and tomorrow to finally finish fitting the front nose. Its taken a while.

You’re likely to get some serious glare with that gloss finish. Before you install it, you might want to paint the topside in front of the steering wheel flat black.

You bet Michael, I was wondering why on earth they would have made that gloss?

Was possibly thinking about plastidip? Or flocking it?? Or as you said, maybe just Matt Black. My initial plans for the original dash were to cover it with black suede or Alcantara. Might still go that route.

Would it take to a color sand approach, say with 800+ grit,l and develop a mat finish w/o having to paint. Or add another layer of matt finish type of clear? Either way, I will be be monitoring the thread.

happy race car building

Vanne....you are living on the edge!
A brake delete adaptor kit....Wowie!
Perhaps your upgraded engine will have such high compression you won't need brakes when you are decelerating!

All kidding aside - can't wait to see your incredible build on-track.
