The texturing is 550 bead blast, it's not the same as OEM's calf grain, looks close, but is not the same. A better close up picture of the texturing can be seen on the lower dash pads (Same texture on both Lower and Uppper Dash Pads). Go to the Lower Dash Pad page and the texture area description will tell you how to pull up a close up picture of the texture.
This material we make this out of is extremely tough and durable. See video on the home page. We are professionals do not try this at home!! You might break a windshield. However, I can only make it so tough and resistant boys and girls....You leave it out in the sun, rain, snow, and sleet 24/7 and after several years you will see some wear! I make this statement because I know that down the road I am going to have some knucklehead that has left the product outside 24/7 for four years through all the weather conditions and come back because it doesn't look like it does brand new! Nothing will, unless you take proper care and maintenance. As with any plastic the most damaging variable is usually UV and the weather. That's why every fj40 has a cracked dash. As I stated earlier we use this same chemistry on OEM heavy construction equipment that is out in the weather and have yet to have product returned due to being defective or it was unable to endure the punishment of a construction site.
Watch the video. In the video I reference IHMud it should have been IH8MUD.com The website is fantastic and I apologize for not saying it properly. I've used it as a resource for fixing up fj40's over the years.
There is a logo for the website FJ40DASH.COM on the face of the dash next to the right hand of the steering wheel, It's not big or gawdy if you click on the photo and enlarge it will bring up the logo. I never wanted to put the LOGO in there to begin with. What happened I had the tool made several years ago and just never had the time to get back around to making this product. When we went to texture the tool we found a gas pocket or Porosity in the tool. There really was no good way to get in there to fix it and not be able to see it on the finished product. Therefore we decided to put a small logo there to cover up the porosity. Please see image on the FJ40 Dash product page.
We ship via USPS to anywhere in the lower 48's and Canada. Unfortunately, several countries have a 42" maximum length. If your country is listed or not listed here you might want to take a look on e-bay for our international dash. It might be cheaper to buy through e-bay and take advantage of their international shipping. What happens is we ship to their warehouse, they palletize along with other items going to your country and ship it bulk. It takes longer but I believe it is significantly cheaper.
