Hey all, I found this really sweet custom dash for my truck. The only problem is that its fiberglass with a gel coat. So its as smooth as silk. Anyone know how to give it that vinal textured look?? is there a roll of this crap or something. Else I wont use it. Thanks

it would have to be covered in vinyl. If you have a picture of it, I could tell you how hard it would be to cover it.

I've painted them with that stone textured paint and then sprayed the body color over that. Looked nice when done.

The shape of that dash could not be easily covered by an amatuer. It would take some pattern making and some sewing. Take the picture to a local upholstery shop to see what they would charge.
