yeah, definitely make sure you take your time putting it on, and also use lots of heat! i did mine last winter in the garage and put the heat full blast in the car while i did it. you'll want to use a hairdrier to heat up the back of each piece to get them nice and sticky. i tried doing mine a little too quickly and and it is coming up in a few places, but it's nothing too noticeable (so tells me everybody) i know it's there so it bugs me. main thing: just take your time thumbsup

Ok, heres my story. When i first got my celi in sept. of 01, i rushed out to ebay and i bought a brushed aluminum "look" dash kit for $150. i put it on and was happy for a bout 3 months. After a while, it started to yellow from the sun, and it looked real cheap. Then i tried to paint the center console black. That kept me satisfied for a while, until i realized it wasn't as glossy as it should be,, and it just didn't look right. Then i stumbled across acculaser.net and i found a carbon fiber "look" MOLDED dash kit that blew me away. eek I bought it for around $130, and it F*cking rocks. It looks incredible, way better than those flat ones you use the hairdryer on. (i know, cause thats how my "aluminum" one was.)

If you're looking for a carbon fiber kit, i highly recommend the acculaser one.

P.S. - I didn't mean any disrespect to anyone that has the flat kits. tongue
