Default Z3 interior coverings replacements ideas

I need ideas what costs if you have them.
I am in the middle of making a dash for my Z3, I am not sure what finish to have. something period to what the car would be leatherette would be good but I would think almost impossible to get around all the shapes.
work in progress

carpets are another one a lot of awkward shapes to get around I normally use 4 way stretch on the roof and around the parcel shelf. but it can not be used as carpet it would look good till you used it

Flocking works well on dash boards.

Cheap DIY kits available and easy and quick to use.

Agree with flocking. A mess to do, but results are worth it.

thanks for the replies I think the paint option is the one I was more thinking of what casamolino has used. I was actually thinking of a textured stone chip same sort of idea or hammerite spray.just waiting on some release wax to make a mould off it before I fit it then I can use it on the next build too after I have put so much work into it

Black crinkle effect paint ?

Quite a retro finish
