SLshow takes advantage of my kindness, don’t take advantage of ones kindness or they will turn on you. If I click skip on the first ad, then I can go straight to the video, where as if I decide you know what, I’ll give them the revenue and watch 1 ad, but then boom they slap you with 3 more ads you can’t skip through. What the fuck SLshow, you shit in the hand that feeds you? Not a good way to run a platform or any orginisation, one day people will wake up and stop supporting these fraudulent company’s.

My car has a red vinyl interior, so unfortunately I don't think these methods will work on my dash. Still a good video, though! I'll keep these in mind if I ever have a car with a cracked black dash.

For the miata dash, you could’ve applied some silicon and used the vinyl to add the texture. Similar to how you can repair leather seats

I’ve gotten a cover lay cover and it’s amazing I think. Only problem I’ve had is if it heats up a lot the dashboard cover will bend a little
TrippinSimple Pred 15 urami
The dash cap from option 1 is suppose to be adhered on by epoxy or some sort of adhesive to give it the more 'flush' look. In most cases these end up looking pretty junky. And option 3 for those who don't know the SEM paint he is using is actually a vinyl dye, unlike typical paint it adheres to vinyl/leather better than spray paint and is flexible so it doesn't crack. (Not trying to be a know it all, I just do it as a job)

You could've rhino lined/truck bed lined textured the dash then spray paint using automotive paints. I sprayed truck bed textured liner on my beige/tan heavy stained headliner. Then spray painted mat black. Looks nice & really durable. Definitely no more stains.

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.

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 Pred 2 dnevi
@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

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!

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 Pred 4 dnevi
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.
