I've covered many. Lot's of heat, patience, tugging, and a very stretchy material. On any tight right angles like around the gauge areas, you'll do good to pattern and sew a seam there for any sharp transitions. certainly a good leather or high stretch vinyl will conform , but sometimes the seam improves looks and saves aggravation too.

Well that vacuum machine and oven to heat the vinyl would be awesome, but for those of us without here is the way I have to do them.  good luck!!

NCYDMN, great job on that dash! We'd love to feature it on The Hog Ring just as we did our gel pad "how to". Please let us know if that's okay - and/or if you'd like to add or change anything. You can email us off this list forum by visiting our website and clicking on the mail icon in the top right of the homepage.

Thanks!
