    DIY wood delete and center console on Model 3. My first time doing it. I bought it on a roll, instead of the precut templates because I couldn't find black ash look in a precut. It's not perfect but definitely happy with my first try! (And I have plenty of material left to re-do it when I feel like it.)

    I used Vvivid, instead of 3m 1080, because it is much more cost effective. It was my first time, so I figured that I was better to experiment with the cheaper stuff. Here is the link to all of the Vvivid wood grains:

    Wood Grain

    The thing you need to know is that the grain is long-ways on the wrap. The roll is 48" wide. So if you ordered 1' x 48", you would have to wrap the dash with the grain vertically and that wouldn't look right. So I bought 6' x 48". I got it off Amazon, but you can buy it wherever you like. I also got knifeless tape, which I haven't used yet, but I'm thinking I might try to DIY the full chrome delete.
