Pictures aren't too great with the Iphone and dusk approaching.
My first try at something like this.Not too bad really, blends well and feels classier than paint. Used 3M wrap, 3 torx screws and a gentle pull will get the dash off for you.
Be careful removing the Sport Hazard chrome rings, its very important how they go back or the buttons won't function properly ( ask me how I know) ha ha

Looks good and sounds like you've now had to pull the dash more than once. :D

That's a superb job. I've got some of the film too chicken to pull the dash to do it yet. What holds the "500" on the dash, easy to remove?

There are 4 clips that hold the 500 badge on, PITA to remove, you'll break at least one as the prongs are really flimsy, you'll see what I mean when you get that far along. The whole thing really isn't that hard of a job, get those torx outta the box and just do it

Did you cut around the 500 badge or remove it and replace it after the wrap?

The 500 Badge pops out in two pieces (top & bottom). I'm not sure how Abarthsc approached it, but I wrapped the entire dash and then fitted the plastic emblem back into place afterwards.

Does anyone have pics of where the torx screws are located? or perhaps a thread on dash removal?
