I think it's fine as it is. If you're going to add it to the cart you'll notice it. I was just looking as I'm going to wait for the remaining door pieces.

Awesome! Thanks for the update, and I can't wait to get this beauty installed!

If we ship back our old gauge cluster hood or speaker covers or knee pads do we get a discount and/or small amount of a refund credited back since you don't have to buy that part when you make a new one? If it's in acceptable condition of course.

Here are a few photos of the hood installed on my brz. I love it! There was a bit of glue overspray on the bottom of the hood, which didnt bother me at all because it was not a viewable part. Over all good quality!

Would this help with the glare that bounces of the windshield? I'd assume so since this piece is dull in luster?

It should help with any glare problems you are having with light reflecting off the OEM piece.

I can attest to the glare reduction. It definitely makes a noticeable difference.

Received my JPM Coachworks alcantara gauge cluster hood today. Installed in less than 2 minutes, and it looks awesome! Really nice match to the BRZ Limited alcantara and red stitching. Great work guys!!

Edit, here are a few quick pics (it's hard to capture the exact color, but it is an exact match to the BRZ Limited alcantara seats)

@stockysnail Definitely I am working on writing up this program today. I am hoping to have the final details buttoned up as well as the buy-back / trade-in pricing finalized too. I will be sure to send you a PM as well as post a new thread once we have everything ready to go!

I was considering a gift card? What do you think?

I think a gift card would be good if you had a larger company with lots of stuff to order over time. There's only a couple things I want to order (speaker covers and gauge cluster). I think what would be best would be to run the credit for a refund of X dollars minus whatever credit card fee you need to soak up for running a card. For example if I ordered the gauge cluster I would send my stock ones back in and you'd refund my card $20.

Yes please pm me when you decide how to handle the kickback and I'll place my order.

@stockysnail I will look into that option. There are fees associated with refuding cards that I need to review. Also, the increase in frequency of refunds may raise red flags with our credit card merchant. I'll report back!

The simulated leather variant is coming soon. We're hoping to have a few photos of the prototype posted on Friday!

I suppose for the true pennie pinchers they could send the parts into you first and drive around without panels which would probably be best for you as you could just do a one time charge instead of refunds or gift cards.
