Very sharp, nice job. Do you think it would be possible to wrap alcantara right on the leather on the steering wheel, so it doesn't need to be removed (both the leather and the steering wheel)?

Thanks guys, front bumper is made of high quality fiberglass and is indeed a quality product, but not perfect.
Theoretically you can wrap the steering wheel in car, though it would take a lot longer and it would be very difficult to do so.
Leather can be left under the new cover, though it may have some visual problems where the leather ends near the spokes. I would remove the old leather.

Snader, that makes sense. If I'm doing it I want to do it right, remove the leather and such, but my leather is still nearly perfect.

Snap!!!.....Generally I'm not a huge fan of the carbon fiber look, but I must say that the CF coupled with the alcantara is absolutely stunning! The dash looks amazing....one of the best I've ever seen....well done snader!!!

Well, I made them myself, all it takes is a bit of epoxy, CF cloth and a bit of sanding

Awesome work! I'm not a fan of Alcantara in general, and CF is so often overdone. But your work is very tasteful, and with excellent craftsmanship, so the overall effect is stunning!

so... this is very exciting
What would a complete dash sent to you or a Dashboard Core exchange ? cost for this exact configuration.

You could sell this easily

It probably took a few hours to get the dash out of the car, I`d be happy to do another dash. Considering how many hours I put in this, I cant see it costing less than 2500usd+ shipping. Carbon fiber comes in a variety of colors, so there are a few options to choose from. Here is where I source my materials:
