    I am new to this site and as a "new" owner of a 2004 FX35, I am looking to fix the usual issues found with this ride.

    Leather Seats were ripped: I bought used leather seats and replaced the "skins" two weeks ago. I now have the structures or the replacement seat and do not know what to do with them.

    Bubbly Dash: Had the coverlay 10-305LL-BLK in my ebay cart. Logged this weekend to purchased for $302+Shipping, they pulled the item. CarID now wants $386+Shipping=$441. Ouch! that is what I get for waiting. They would not price match old price.

    Called Accuform, they only have the 10-609LL for the 2006-2008 available. I was told the area radio does not match. I also wrote an note to possibly help with them to produce one.

    Still looking for an alternatives.

    Difference is the radio area from Coverlay. 305=2004; 609=2006+

    I bought the Coverlay black dashboard to cover my melted dashboard; it actually doesn't look bad except for the side near the windshield (the glue didn't stick), but even that doesn't look too bad. However, I'm deciding to remove and actually pay for the replacement. The main reason is that the passenger airbag seems to be covered a little bit. If there was something to happen (especially since I haven't done recall NHTSA 16V-349 for airbag), I could this be potentially hazardous.

    I've requested two requests, one came in at $3,000--I don't think the car is worth that much. I live in Houston.

    Has anyone else received estimates to replace the entire dashboard? If so, can you please post area and price? Thanks in advance!

    I also stay in Houston and I went to all the Infiniti dealerships and they all wanted almost $3k to replace. I love this car don't get me wrong but $3,000 to replace a dash is outrageous.

    The cheapest, I've gotten so far is from Master Auto Body & Upholstery. This is what, I received from him months ago:

    "We have encounter this problem before and the only solution is to replace the dashboard. The dash is sold in two colors the black one is $1,530.42 and the beige is $1809.71 the labor will be $700. Let me know if you have any questions."

    I don't know what your price point is, but maybe we can negotiate a lower price if they do two? I've emailed another upholstery company in Houston and waiting for their response.

    Hi i have some pictures of the Accuform model for the 2006-2008 version FX.
    It looks a bit shiny but that is due mostly to the "lightning" of the camera.
    It is a lot cheaper 200 USD,compared to the Coverlay.
    I am not familiar with the quality differences, however i have a sample of the Coverlay and that is thicker than the Accuform and then is the question do Coverlay use the thickness of the sample in real on their dashboard cover ?
    The color of the Coverlay is a bit more fuller black and the structure is more "there" to see
    And are those differences worth the price differences??
    But it is worth it to better your dash with bubbles all over and a cheaper alternative to replacing with a original or to reupholstering the dash.
    Mark this as well: the Accuform has no covering at the airbag place the Coverlay does!

    Thanks for the review and pictures. So the Accuform leaves that giant hole open where the airbag is?
    I look forward to seeing more pictures with it installed.

    Looks neat! Would you mind linking where you purchased it from? After a quick google search I can't seem to find anything.
