hmmmm......i'm thinking you could probably contact paper the dashboard instead of decoupaging it. damn, now i'm tempted to pimp My ride. at the moment the interior is all boring tan. with leather seats. it doesn't even have a bloody clock or trunk release, but it has Leather Seats.



wtf.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

if you're trying to do something permanent to the (plastic) dash i'd recommend taking sandpaper or a wire brush to it first - adhesives will stick a lot better!  For semi-permanent i'd guess contact paper would work, though i'm not sure for how long.  i'd think it would turn brittle in the sun.

Wow, those are all awesome, the art cars are amazing- I especially like the pez one and the marbles one! I am thinking of something not so permanent, since I will probably end up selling the car. Any more ideas?
