i dont like tweed for the way it looks.....its not itchy, and its cheap

main reason people use it is because it can contour things easily...i dont really care though i contour vinyl just as well....

not my style but its what the guy wanted......the lip of the dash looks funny in this pic for some reason but i think its just the angle its viewed from...i cut at nearly a 90 degree angle sloping towards that lip so it would rise out slowly but it looks drastic in the pic :angry:

so much armorall on this dash :angry: it was a pain in the ass to wrap...had to sand down with 80 grit just so the glue could bite something...multiple cleaning with wax remover and it still didnt bite good

there are other fabrics that stretch well besides tweed.....look for things with 4 way stretch...they make some vinyls in 4 way stretch just for doing contours...a little bit of searching and you should find something you like if you dont actually want tweed...tweed is good if used properly though....and when i said cheap above i meant cheap as in price....it lasts pretty decent
