    If they can ever make it cheap enough and durable enough then we may have something. Otherwise, it is a very expensive, esoteric novelty material that only has entertainment value for most of us. :(

    yes touch it and it is ruined.

    I am hoping for a durable solution that can be powder coated, then i will get my old employer Steel Coating to get a sample home i can spray on something.

    Dont have to be super black, just blacker than current black ( RAL 9005 ) or Jet Black as some call it, but i am used to work with the RAL standard and numbers.

    Dash mats always seem to shrink with time. I cut mine in half, fit hard left and right, align the cutouts over vents and cover over the centre gap with a 30mm strip of black fabric sprayed with satin black paint. Satin looks blacker than matte.

    All the shots that have the time stamp are VLC screen grabs of footage recorded with the G1W-H.
