I'm pretty good at painting stuff, but I always have trouble to get a tough finish from the spraypaint cans. Maybe baking it will help it harden better.
But what I was thinking: a thin layer of foam padding, and then a layer of fabric will look great around those gauges.

I think that foam padding would look great... but not with the rest of the interior of the ae86..

I spend again 2 hours after work drilling the holes and sawing ... and my favo... powersanding Big Grin (powervijlen in het nederlands Big Grin )

result:

Yeah I would keep it the original one and take another one if I want to cut it and paint it to black if its different color. But if you does not care about that than just do it Tongue

I was really pissed when I bought my car and saw the console was cutted for double dim.
