I agree. The worst piece of these kits I see is the piece that covers the center vents in the dash right above the ash-tray. Most people don't install this piece fortunately.

And the ones on the buttons are a bit much. Not only do they cause the buttons to become recessed,...but every button hole is one more place where you can see the origional piece underneath,.... which screams that it is only an overlay. Of course they ARE overlays,...but the fewer clues the better.

For my money it would be just the pieces arcoss the top of the doors and dash,...and the center stack from below the center vents to the shifter.

The vents on the back of the console and the rear ash trays etc look cheap in most cases.

anything else woudl be a bit 'ower done' in my eyes.
but it's just in my eyes. every person has diferent taist.


otherwise very nice kit, which mine could have been real wood..

My favorite part is the where it surrounds the switches. Wish they made more pieces for the rear arm rests. Everyone has their preferences though. I believe you can order the pieces you want and leave out the ones you don't want. It would have to be a special order though. I had to replace the passenger side panel because the one they sent me with the kit was defective. The lettering was reversed for the door lock switch function. "Lock", and "Unlock" were reversed. The company I ordered the kit from resolved the problem quickly and efficiently. They kept me informed at all stages of the process. Thumbs up for www.carid.com

I'm definitely going to order something this winter but I'm torn.
I love the Wood, but I also like the Carbon Fiber.

That's why i need to see multiple versions on different interior and exterior color combination's.
I feel the Exterior plays a lot into the decision making process, not just the Interior.
The Interior color is #1 reason, Exterior #2.
But I may not have to give it much thought after Randall ships me the Carbon fiber Kit he has.
Ha just doesn't know it yet.!!!

Go to www.photobucket.com and open up a free account. You upload pictures from your computer to photobucket, and they have links which you can copy and paste into your posts.

Sherwood does offer their kit two ways, with and without the switch surround, but they don't offer any of the other items.
I thought about checking on the ones that go around the vents and the one below that at one time, I thought it would give it more of the look of the '65 console, but haven't done anything about it.

Its Titanium Burl wood, interior is charcoal, again sorry bout the pictures. They do it no justice at all, I will do a nice shoot of the whole car with the big camera after the spring thaw. This just gives you a rough idea @ least.

It's hard to say which would be the best choice? I'm sure I have seen the Riv in the Green Mettalic as you say yours is but since we have never seen yours in the Showroom here it would be a guess at best?!? As you said, the Exterior plays a part in that decision.

Sherwood Kit ... Dark Burlwood (real wood kit) ... Black/Platinum Beige interior
I thought a DARK wood dash would look best with my dark exterior color ...

And Larry opted for a lighter/medium dash for his light colored Riv ...
LOOK GREAT LARRY! cheers

It also depends on what look you are going for, as has been said here before the wood gives the Riv more of a look of Luxury and the Carbon Fiber gives a more Sporty look.

I've got Ebony Zebra Wood and a mid-gray interior -







There might be a closer match to your combo in this thread.

You might want to read my install thread if you haven't already. I did a lot more than peel n stick.

That actually looks pretty good. I'm just trying to get an idea of what I want for mine. I've never seen another one with graphite interior and mine is just too plain.
