Usually, the modernization of the dashboard understand replace the failed lightdisplay, or add a range of innovative devices, whether the installation of advanced on-board computers with electronic scoreboard, dvudinovyh recorder with touch screen monitor, the supply to the steering contact column for sound control, climate control and so on. in fact, the tuning of the instrument panel includes a much widerthe range of possible changes that imply a qualitative improvement in its appearance, as well as increase the level of comfort and ease of use.Moreover, much can be done with his own hands, without resorting to costly services AVTOMASTER at SRT or brand car showrooms and do not doubt in their own abilities, because for most purposes does not require any special talents or many years of experience, nor even more so the artistic imagination.
But, first things first,
The most difficult step is the most close-fitting dash new material and in order not to be mistaken with its size, should be prepared otrez larger.All payment is to ensure that cropping implement extra trim pieces after bonding the main area of the web.In order to do this as carefully as possible, use a sharp knife and stationery tight curves.In any case, you should start with a dash visor, gradually moving to the middle, and then to the lower part.The course of the work is alternately applied a special glue thick individually to the surface of the dashboard and on the wrong side of the fabric, and then pauses for at least ten minutes and start laying a new layer on the visor, gradually leveling him with a special plastic spatula.
If necessary, the lower and side portions of the dashboard and caused her material added to the adhesive layer, and after a pause, the above plating process continues.Most of the artists in order to increase the degree of polymerization of the adhesive used, use such accessories as an ordinary hair dryer.It should work exceptionally warm, but not hot air, otherwise there is a fairly high risk that the skin substitute or undergo deformation.Working with such materials it must be remembered that they can "float" for another 30-40 minutes after the plating process and therefore this point is not to be missed out of the spotlight.It should take into account the fact that the replacement is much more plastic material than leather, and with the help of hot air flow from the dryer all the same, it can be stretched in the right direction, which is undoubtedly very convenient.
If in need of tuning the instrument panel itself, the first thing it needs to be carefully dismantled, as these works are not carried out in the car.To do this, the steering column, if it is adjustable in height, should be deleted in the very lowest position and unscrew the screws on the instrument panel that was planted on the dashboard.When removing important not to damage the plastic retaining clip, which is required in advance to specify their location.Then carefully disconnect the device and start tuning themselves-board scales.To this end, the substrate is detached from the glass and remove the arrow, which in turn allowed the same old good hair dryer.After that you can start otshkurivaniyu substrate made of plastic, and use only the coarse-sided sandpaper.
Print new board-scale can recreate their existing size in any program for the construction of, or by downloading from the network ready-made templates.Use only be thick glossy paper, and cut blanks are best the sharpest nail scissors (stationery knife in this case is not always a sufficiently agile).After doing all the above simple manipulations, begin to design the collection, using a thin double-sided adhesive tape (adhesive basically always contributes a significant deformation of the paper layer) and installation of the updated instrument panel to the original position.
