You could probably use it, but if you've got a manual shift car, you don't really have much room on the sides for cupholders. On an auto car you have more options, since the shifter assembly can be replaced with something smaller and moved over. But the manual cars are a bit of a pain because the shifter is designed to sit in the middle, and has to move in two directions.

If you do try to use it, be careful with flourescent or compact flourescent (energy saver) lighting. They both emit more UV than incandescent lighting, and might cause the material to set up early, since the resin seems to react to UV to cause the hardening.

Two things. Nothing comes close to doing a composite lay-up in a mold. There are no shortcuts when it comes to good looking and functioning Carbon Fiber or fiber glass parts. Second UV cure resin will brown A LOT over time. So if you made dash parts from this stuff you would need to put a few coats of a good automotive clear on it. By good I mean PPG, or DuPont non of this rattle can crap. Good Automotive clear has some good UV inhibitors in it. Looks like an expensive way to learn a good lesson about composites. Not knocking you just speaking form a few years of experience.

thanks guys. the reason im thinking of doing this is cuz im a senior in highschool and i have to complete a "graduation project" which is project that consists of a 6 page about three careers and then a project that has to to take over 15 hours. and my dads buddy has a body shop and im trying to find other stuff i could do besides repairing a craked quarter panel on my dads vette. also this project decides wether or not i graduate highschool even if i do have all my credits

Saw them use this on Trucks! this morning. Looks like a useful product - probably good for ducting for those guys doing dash swaps.
