    Trick with overlays is to get the full ones and not just a piece! Also sand down cracks so the overlay sits flush

    I've never flocked a dash, but as a gay guy the muscles in my arms are toned and have excellent endurance for that exact technique needed to use that tubular fiber applicator. 💪 Hell yeah, that dual chicken choking comes in handy sometimes. $60, saved. 😎😎😎 Dash, repaired. Boyfriend, satisfied. 😸

    I've always heard that armor all actually damages your dashboard overtime then just leaving it "unprotected". I think it would be pretty cool if you guys could use different vinyl treatments on old dashboards let them sit out in the Sun for an extended period of time while using the recommended treatment frequencies and see which one last longest and which ones actually worth buying, if any. This is an awesome series, keep it up! Definitely my favorite on the channel.

    Here in Mexico, we remove the dashboard, repair it with fiberglass and upholster it with vinyl, the result is very good. the cost its like 120 bucks

    True story: My first car was a hand me down '84 Mercury Cougar. One day my dad and I are out working on it, he spots the cracked dashboard. "Your headbanger friends are banging away on the dashboard! Damn it Nino!"...."No dad it's dry rot, i swear"...."Yeah right!". 6 months later, more cracks appear..."OK maybe it was dryrot - sorry". Back then, we were just learning how bad that era of dashboards really was!

    • VBshredder

      @seeni gzty Probably impossible to match the texture that way - not that the method they used here worked too well - but i'm guessing with great skill and luck it could

    • seeni gzty

    SEM makes a texturizing paint you would put on top the primer if i recall correctly and then paint over it. this may not create the same texture as the miata dash but i would think it would be easier than trying to time the primer and pressing a texture into it. also you could potentially spray the texture paint all over the dash and might get a more uniform texture. (just shooting that idea out there not sure if it would work) SEM makes some of the best shit when it comes to painting vinyl and flexible surfaces.

    Hey Zach! I live in Cleveland Ohio and I just bought a 1996 Miata for $2,350. It's got 165k miles, a replaced timing belt, it's clutch is going, it's got aftermarket sway bars, coilovers, racing seats and harnesses, and a racing wheel similar to yours. It has been painted three times and the current coat was done with spray paint! I am looking to keep this car for a few summers and away from the winter and restore it to a decent condition, perhaps to the point where I could get my most of my money back and even, if possible, make a profit. I've been watching all of Donut's Miata videos and I know that all of these performance parts and improvements would increase the value of the car, however I don't have a ton of money for that. I am wondering if you have any advice for changes or recommendations for parts that I could do on the car that would increase it's resale value the most. Thanks so much man!

  • Jim M 75

    Great video, imo you should have went with a fibreglass based filler, much less prone to shrink and a bit stronger. The flocked dash looked great, it would have came out better still with an air gun but I was impressed with the result using the cheapo hand blower. Nothing screams "tuned" or "race" car more to me than a flocked dash, great safety addition for anywhere with a lot of sunshine too.

    I was thinking about this the other day as I’ve never experimented with it; but is it possible to use heat (say a soldering iron) to melt harder smooth plastics together sand them, and then paint

  • Chris Pellatt
    Chris Pellatt

    Other than the slightly high filler in the Miata dash the main reason it's so obvious is that you used a positive texture onto a positive textured surface. What you wanted as high spots are actually low spots and the "veins" of the texture are actually high spots. You can get leather look silicon moulds and do the same technique and it comes out much better. If I had the same issue I would still flock the dash as in my opinion flocked dashes are so much cooler.

    Thank you for taking one for the team. I've got a poor old S30 that's going to need some dash treatment before it's done. I'm probably looking at a combination of cap and flocking to disguise the few seams and plastic texture of the cap.

    I changed the color of my door cards with SEM landau black as well. They turned out great in my opinion. However I didn’t use primer, I just scuffed them with a grey scotchbrite pad and some isopropyl alcohol, then laid the black down. Came out great.

  • rp94cobra

    To those thinking of painting your plastic, or composite material pieces such as this dude. Consider this. No matter what you do to these pieces, oil will always leave the core of the material and slowly lift to the surface. So just to let you no, no matter how much prep work you do eventually over time the paint will lift away from the surface and flake off. Not ragging on his work but in my opinion painting those materials just blows and isn't worth it in the long run.

    i dont like the one you chose to be the winner it looks like the 80s dashboard but the cheap route looks promising ...I think for your first time it looks really good almost perfect but by learning better method in applying things and or other things knowing there is humps still at the end then maybe sanding down the humps before hand and before putting the filler so it wont make the hump even higher at the end of it all is the key to making those not show up after.

    ZACH, what you needed on the Miata dash were the "SEM 70022 Interior Graining Pad". You could still go back and go over the repair. You use what looks like a soldering iron with a flat end on it. It uses the heat to transfer the pattern that's on the graining pad to the repaired part, just working it along. When I was in my teens I could do a repair that you couldn't tell it was repaired, but you had to use graining pads. They sell those on Amazon and other places.

    Don't forget that buying a replacement dash is only like 5% of it. The other 95% of it is pulling the old one, replacing all the other stuff you broke doing so, then bolting the new one in. And since you already have the dash out, you might as well replace your heater core, evaporator core, the broken blend door, and since you're fixing all the under-dash stuff, you might as well finally replace the compressor so you have working AC.
