Union jack dash pics

Hi all:
I thought I'd share a pic of the Union Jack dashboard graphics I installed in my 2007 MCS. I bought them at www.minimotoringgraphics.com
Robert, their customer service rep, provided great, friendly assistance. The install took about 30 minutes.

Nice We did my wifes car in a UJ theme. Not overly done but nice. We wrapped the rear wing in a Union Jack...came out really cool.

I've been considering doing something to my dash but never follow through because i have no idea how you get to the part behind the steering wheel.

Did you have to remove the wheel? Or?

Nope. Just pop it off. The first time is time is hardest, then it is easy after that. Had mine off more times then I can count. Removing the screws on the tach does help.

I was concerned about unbolting the tach from the steering column, so I simply cut the graphic in half, and then lowered the steering wheel to install. As the shape of the drivers side dash piece is a bit wonky, cutting it really helped with positioning the pieces, and the seam is invisible, as it's behind the tach.

Go to my garage--you can see the wing....Thinking seriously about adding the dash jacks, but I have blue color line--the blues may not match well. Has anyone done this with blue color line?
