this would look really cool for the dash and doors

i really like the yellow dash&door kit but it just a little to much yellow but i was looking at some stuff then i made this on my pc with windows paint and now i relly like how it looks i just need to find the yellow tubeing to do it with it would look great with the abl light on it but i think it would look great with the the yellow tubeing that can be use in the seats for the dash with just a hint of yellow thanks let me know what you guys think http://twitpic.com/26cu2d/full

I think it looks great. I would love to extend my existing ABL across the dash (only in the blue), but the DIY steps are way over my electronic expertise (can't do much more than plug and play)..

Picked up some this afternoon. Will post if it's good.

FYI, this is cloth, not plastic as I had assumed.

Rallyrob, did you try the doors yet? Seems like the gap is too small.

I'll get some close-up's. Again, it is fabric, so, it's not perfectly smooth, and keeping it taught is a trick.

Until Rallyrob chimes back in, here are some things that I've found...

You will likely need a few credit cards. The corners get bent up and lose rigidity after a while. You can trim back the card and make a new, rounded corner, but this only lasts so long. Maybe we can find a better tool for this.

I need to figure out a good end treatment (you can see the white cord inside at the cuts). I tried pulling out the cord, trimming it back, and then pulling the outer casing past the cord. The ends unravel, too. Maybe a heat source will allow sealing the ends up.

The gap around my door panel was really tight. This is where you'll need to keep a fresh card edge.
