+Is anyone familiar with or used the process of flocking? Cam across this several weeks ago and thought it just maybe the answer to creating a really great interior. No more plastic seats, no more just plain door panels or ones covered with light plywood. Just pick from a wide selection of colors, get the correct color matched adhesive, Lightly sand the service and dust on the micro fiber and let it set for 24 hours. Results are very realistic looking seats. I did this on the new EC-135 and they look great. I found it at Woodcraft and at Rockler stores. Next would be the inside door panels using the same process. I will try to post photos once I figure out how to. Regards, Gayl

I did the process many many moons ago and it is very easy. I am sure for this project you would want to select a fiber that is very fine for the proper texture.

Been doing flocking for some time now. It works great. As long as you use the colored glue under the flock, it comes out nice. I put the part in a cardboard box to add the flock, then tap off lightly to get the excess off.

And I thought I was onto something really new and exciting. I guess it just takes us old guys a while to catch up. I wonder what else I have missed. Regards, Gayl

I've used flocking for years when building model cars. Any hobby shop that caters to "plastic" builders should have a good assortment to choose from.

Its also worth saying.. you need to use a dust mask when flocking.. the fibers are easy inhaled... not good for ya either.

First let me thank everyone for there input on Flocking. I thought I had come across a new and exciting technic when in fact it has been around for some time. Are there other technics that can be used or is the video straight forward in how it should be done. Another good website is http://WWW.flockit.com. I found out that a little Flocking goes a long way, you can recycle the material just use a large box with a plastic garbage bag insert and that you must be patient after applying it. Just leave it set and walk away for 24 hours. Shake off the excess and you have a great finished product. The seats in the EC-135 look great. Just that little finishing touch to set it apart in the crowd. I have a lot of models to catch up on. Regards, Gayl

Also, if you do not want to do the entire seat, such as just add a flocked seat cushion, use fine line tape to mask off the area to remain unflocked, and flock in the masked area. Remove tape after flocking.
