Catamaran Boat Gets a Carbon Fiber DI-NOC Dash
One of our customers recently sent in a few pictures of his install where he brought the dash of his 34-foot Avantage Catamaran boat back to life. Here’s what it looked like before:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nPretty nasty! Mainly the big rust stain on the left, but there’s an easy fix for that! 3M’s carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl of course! Once all of the gauges and steering wheel were pulled off, the dash was wrapped:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nLooks a million times better if you ask us…and it only gets better. Lets get those missing elements installed back on the dash:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nThis looks fantastic, especially with the real carbon fiber panel to match. Here’s the final install…it’s a bit hard to tell but white panel under the visor is actually a strip of the CA-419 white carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl…it’s a very nice attention to detail/design addition if you ask us:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nThere you have it! An easy way to get your boat dash looking brand new (even better than new actually) without spending a ton of money. Here’s a few tips that our customer provided as feedback:\r\n
- Always work from the center out.
- When installing on a rounded surface, heat and pull and with both hands, and down.
- Put down a guide line of masking tape to cut straight lines.
- Break off the tip of an Xacto razor blade and it will cut straight lines much better.
- I put down a thin black line of pinstripe tape to give it more of a finished edge.
