I've turned into a flockoholic!!! Glove box redo

Post by GRNSHRK »

Well, since the glove box was already removed for a redye, and the inside had seen better days, I said what the hell and decided to flock the inside :roll:

The flocking kit is actually intended for this purpose, and since I've got ALL of this experience now, I had nothing to loose, right :-"

I'll admit that this stuff is a PITA to work with, but the results are well worth the effort =D>

One caveat I should point out, or mistake, actually, is that I should have flocked first, then redyed [-X

I managed to mess up some of the dye job and had to do it again ](*,)

As usual, please let me know what you guys think [-o<

Years ago during the resto of an Etype, I took the glove box into a company that did merchandising displays for retail stores. They "flocked me " for $25

Thanks gents, the flocking kit is put away, for now :-"

Glove box is installed, think I'm finally done with the interior :shock:

Well, except for the stereo, we'll leave that for another day, or week :roll:

Here's how it looks back in place, along with a before and after of the dye job, what a difference \:D/

I finally received the correct LED for the glovebox, after ordering what I thought would do the trick :roll:

Superbright LEDs suggested a different version and the results are great =D>

It's almost like daylight in there now \:D/

Hey Ken, why yes it is \:D/

Also a "shark experience" shot glass :-"

I should have mentioned what the part number of this LED is [-o<

BA9S-CWHP5 (bayonet 9mm type)

Again, these are from Superbright LEDs, guessing that's their P/N :-k

And I should also mention that you need to reverse the leads, as the polarity is opposite :-({|=

One wonders why these cannot be made with the correct polarity, a discussion for another day :roll:

I ran into the same "reverse polarity" problem when I converted all the lighting on my two E30s. That and getting a signal flasher that would work on the low current draw LEDs.

What's next on the flock-o-rama?

Well, thankfully the series 1 6ers don't have that issue due to the low current draw through LEDs =D>

Hmm, think I'm flocked out for now :roll:

Seriously, I don't think there are other parts in the interior or otherwise that would require flocking :-"

Hello Ken

It was AZ. However, there has to be mega many such companies in NYC that build display items
