Surprising our SUBSCRIBER with his DREAM CAR BUILD! (Full Transformation): 2014 Subaru BRZ

  Alex was recently announced as the winner for throtl Dream Build #2! As the winner of #throtldreambuild2, Alex got his car shipped out to San Diego California to be fully modified by the throtl team. When Alex's car arrived, it was a mostly-stock 2014 Subaru BRZ. As soon as the car arrived at the throtl headquarters, the team immediately got to work on some modifications. Alex's car got the works with some new interior, exterior, and performance-based modifications. Interior Modifications For the interior of the BRZ, we installed a custom black suede headliner, throtl shift knob, and a new audio system from OEM Audio+.

How To Restore and Flock a Cracked Dashboard

Is your dash in need of a complete restore? Here are some of the steps to take when restoring and flocking your dash:
  • If there are any cracks in the dash you will want to cut away the material in a "V" shape. Doing so will allow any filler to make a smooth surface. 
  • Sand down the entire dashboard 
  • Wipe down the surface with acetone
  • Fill the cracks with Fiber glass resin Jelly. (We used the Bondo kit)
  • Let Bondo sit for at least 20 hours
  • Use an orbital sander and sand until the surface is completely smooth
  • Wipe off the surface
  • Apply flock adhesive 
  • Apply flocking material
  • Gently blow off leftover material with air
If you want to restore cracks in your dash, use Bondo fiber glass resin jelly found HERE
