Anything you would do differently if you were doing it again? It looks good, gives me some ideas since my dash is out

I would prolly have it professionally wrapped. it hides a lot of imperfections that drives me nuts. as far as location I like it a lot.

Yea it seems to be just about the best spot for that. Congrats on that it looks really good. It might seem dumb but I was thinking about doing something like that to move my head unit. Use something like what Broadfield makes for gauges and move the AC controller too.

I do paint and body work for a living and that's pretty dang impressive man. I had a coworker do his and it cracked like crazy middle of summer but he just used cheap filler. Looks like you used the good stuff. How's it holding up?
