I would just paint the whole thing. Tweed looks good on some trucks when done right in certain areas. I was thinking about tweeding my dash, but I thought it over and just dyed the whole thing.

I'd paint the whole damn dash and do a suede headliner. Honestly troll hair screams, "I HAVE NO TASTE!" That stuff looks like shit:puke: I dont see why you would want to do it:think: But if you must, be my guess, I'll just say, "Told ya so." :LOL:

I agree w/ 00Silverado. troll hair does look like shit. I think suede is a nice fabric if you want that (pimped out look.) maybe you should mix it up and do a leather/vinyl and suede look. what ever it is i dont think you should use troll hair.

I wouldn't use a rattle can man. If you can't spray it yourself get a body/paint shop to do it. They shouldn't charge much at all. That's what I did to mine. He charged me around $50-$60 for painting all this:

I'm in the process of sanding the top main dash and some other stuff right now and I'm going to get my painter to paint them as well.
