Very different AND very nice. Would never had thought of doing something like that myself. Looks good.

I'm loving the wood inserts on your steering wheel too. Cross between Farimont and sporty IMO.

How long did that take you to do? It wouldn't have been toooooo hard would it?

whats seen in the pics (a pillars, dash and top panel) was done over 2 days.
could have been done quicker if i was doing more then 1 part at a time but i'm in no hurry.

sikEF6, haha, who do u think went and posted those pics all over the forums ;)
i used silicone, probably other things you could use but it needs to be very strong.
can't really do anything in the way of a tutorial, i just made sure it'd fit then stuck it all down slowly.
