Anyone with Suede dash yet?

Any pics would be cool. Thinking about pulling the trigger but not sure how to get the stitching done.

To do it properly, you need to completely remove the dash which is a BIG job. I think it would look great but it is a big project.

Anyone in the southeast that wants a suede dash let me know I will give you a discount.

How much do you think the modification would cost for a suede dash?

Hell yeah. I would like to see this done. I've been thinking about it for a while now, ever since I checked out a Porsche GT3 in a showroom next to the Nissan dealership.

I think a well done alcantera dash with good stitching would be a badass upgrade, but I'm sure expensive and time consuming.

You guys don't like the dash setup? I thought it was pretty good considering. But I liked the Z32 - 300ZX / S13 - 240SX dash setup. Clean, but everything is in clear view.

370z has a decent dash setup for sure, especially for how inexpensive these cars are. the last thing i would worry about making nicer on these cars is the dash

I like the way the dash looks as well. The materials seem pretty nice. Although I have no desire for one, a suede dash would probably look pretty cool.
