i was wondering since i have not really seen a dash kit up close for long enough to inspact it, is it possible to get one and paint it? maybe one of the aluminum ones off of ebay? i donno just a thought. i honestly didn't know they even MADE a real carbon fiber kit, all i've seen if is false carbon kits. looks great! how do i find one of them?

The problem with painting them is that you would be painting over the finish they put on them and would never get it as smooth and shinny as they come. The one in my '95 is real burlewood but the wood is almost paper thin. The 3M backing and the finish that is on it is most of the thickness. This is what it looks like:

This black one looks good and it is not real carbon fiber but there are REAL ones available, I'm sure you'd pay a good bit more for it though.

For what it would cost, I can't see paying for a real carbon fiber kit. For a dash, fake looks and works fine.

I don't know about the carbon fiber but my fake woodgrain dash kit looks great. I have only had one person question it and that was when he touched it.

Pics of my 97 Riv's simulated light burl dash kit (taupe interior).

Looks good!

You can thank me for going to the trouble of waiting a year for a dash kit to get one that fits your car. ;(

They sold me a 95 kit because they though all the 95-99 were the same. A year later (and about 124 emails from me) after they finally got the right measurments for the later years they sent me the dash pieces. :O

It sticks onto the original dash. Well worth the money IMO.

Thanks SpaceBar!!

Yes...I put it over the original dash. Color was very close so I didn't feel the need to remove the itsy bit of woodgrain from around the radio.

My color is much darker and I didn't take it off. You can barely see it at all.

It looks like an awful lot of pieces for $179? I wonder if they have a light wood in a regular grain pattern?

I'm critical about these appearance mods but I have to say that does look very nice.

You have to remove it? The new piece doesn't apply on top of the old piece?

Yes that goes very nice with your interior color. Good choice. It would look horrible in my car with blue interior.

Troy, the kit Jon has might look good on blue?

Or some of their other colors?

Not a bad deal getting it from their eBay Store, their website price is $300 though.

Jon, you should blur out the license plate number in your sig. You don't want to make it any easier for the scam dogs to get their hooks into you.

It's about $400.

I'm debating whether it's worth it or not for real wood vs. plood. I saw a pic of the Enclave interior the other day, which has real wood on the wheel and fake wood on the dash, and the difference was obvious.
