Nice one Mike!

But i'm gonna kick you now...sorry...

Why didn't you keep the grain on the airbag cover in the same direction as the rest of the dash?

lol I was thinking about that. At first I was like "hmm, this might be cool", but now I am more meh. I have plenty left to change the direction though.

A few tips for anyone doing this:

- This isn't like traditional vinyl. Don't use soapy water it seemed to make it worse
- Bubbles are pretty easy to get out without using soap/water combo
- It is thicker than other vinyl, so getting it around the edges is tricky

It lays down very easy and looks good with little effort. I used 3m scotchprint 1080
