Thanks Larry, I appreciate it! You think the carbon fiber would look good with burgandy interior? I think it would go really well, but that's just my opinion.

It's your car, whatever you are happy with. I know the wood looks great with my tan interior. Burgandy requires something else, so carbon fiber might be the ticket. Take some pictures and post them. I'm curious to see what it looks like.

Ugh the link on carid.com for sherwood dash kits won't let me select a finish. I guess I'll have to call and speak with someone on the phone.

While I was on their site, I took a minute to look at the kits by B&I. I noticed that their true carbon fiber kits are actually darker than those offered by Sherwood. I almost like the look better, but I've heard so many good things about Sherwood that I'm afraid to turn away from them. I'm not sure if anyone on this site had even used B&I before.

Would anyone care to take a look at the different carbon fiber kits offered by each company and offer me their insight? I could always call both companies and have them send me samples, but in your opinion which would look better with burgundy interior? Thanks

Forget Carbon Fiber! Mimousa offers black suede dash kits for the Riviera!! All their kits are made in the USA too, so that's a big plus. I think the suede will give me the classy yet still sporty look I'm going for, similar to the GTO's.

do you think you can take a picture from the side? i am curious as to how that center piece looks and fits. because unlike most dash kits i've seen, this one goes all the way down instead of just covering the stock woodgrain....
This kit was never actually "installed"; we were just holding it in place for illustration purposes. I know what you mean about the coverage, I have done both a '95 and a '99 with these kits. Obviously since the '95 came with no wood trim it wasn't a factor but the kit I installed on the '99 was a Sherwood kit, it didn't come all the way down and I did have trouble getting it to cover the holes from removing the old trim piece.

I see you are going with something different anyway, good luck with that.

Hope this helps thumbsup

Nate,
What size did the Riv wheel take? What colors did you order from Wheelskins? It looks great. I have a Wheelskins cover on my 70 GS. They make very nice covers.


Is this the size/color combination? EuroTone Two-Color Buick / Riviera / 1995 - 1999 AXX T&B: Tan
Sides: Sand

It's been on there for years...I bet if I took it off...the wheel would look funky!

But the quality of that material has held up for the whole time.. The cord they use is very tough.

I've got some wear on it now so a redo might be in order, but it's very light.

Great product.

they are all nice.I think the best way is to carbon-fiber all the parts separately with the color of choice,it'll look more factory/pro.I myself always wanted one of those!

for the center piece that covers the radio, did you have to take off the original stock woodgrain first? also do you remember the company its from?

You have to remove the center radio surround. It's held in place with some metallic tangs which pop out from the rear. (take the dash cover off, and you'll be able to remove it. Held with some sticky tape like stuff as well...take your time.

The dash kit is so long ago I don't even remember, but Google gives tons...one good one (and priced about what I paid)

I did not remove my radio surround, but that was because the Sherwood real rosewood color was so close to the stock surround color, that you don't even see it.

Put my woodgrain kit on. Going to let it sit for a week while I'm on vacation and come back with the adhesion sponge to touch up anything that needs to. Full review in the appropriate thread.

Here's mine;



It made a very nice difference. It's nowhere near perfect. There are many gaps where blue leaks through, and the pieces weren't cut perfectly. They all fit fine, except for the left side of the dash. They didn't cut the part that wraps around the radio trim quite right. None of the pieces have lables either (window up/down, lock, etc). I bought it from autocarimage for $130+10 shipping, so I can't complain very much. It's times like these I wish I had a tan interior as it would look so much nicer.

Here is the eBay link (good for 16 more days).
http://www.ebay.com/itm/270600736710?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
I haggled with them and got it for $130 and $10 shipping. I got the medium burl. The company's name where the PayPal payment was sent was to autocarimage.
