    Help

    I have my "A" pillars just how I want them, I cant find anyone to wrap them.

    Anyone recommend a top notch upholstery shop? In Michigan would be nice but will ship out if need to,

    Here are my "A" pillars.







    It is the pillar with the gauge pod that is going to be the bear. but I know I have seen it done and done nicely so, can anyone help me out?

    I'd suggest vinyl and it has to be heated to wrap something like that. I can get some here at the shop but I have to order it. All I have in stock in gray.

    You can get clothed back vinyl to stretch that much? Right now I am more concerned about why my tach quite working.

    There is a limit to how far it can stretch. The trick is to cement both sides (vinyl and the pod) until they are dry to the touch but then when you stick them together they adhere VERY well, which helps keep it from separating on the hard stretches. They heat box makes it very pliable. Not sure about your tach.
