Sorry, Cell pics but will take good ones when I get it all back in the car. I also did the center console, cover, lid for cup holder, cd storage, ashtray cover and piece right below radio to tie it all together. Let me know what you think. Also have changed the short piece of chrome around headlight switch!

Looks good, I like the chrome rings! Can you show us a clear shot of that passenger side heated seat button? What's that drawing on it?

I painted it with Dupli-Color Flat Black Vinyl Interior Paint. It Still has a slight sheen but not much and can be cleaned. I had to remove the very very thin coating over the dash and door pieces. There made of hard plastic underneath which can be sanded. I stopped at 220 grit so I had some texture to the surface. The chrome is a 1/8 strip bought at Auto Zone. I have a cool method of cutting it a little big, working it a bit to get the reverse loop and setting a guitar pick behind to make the final cut! So glad you all like. I always wondered how cool this would look on such a classy interior! More pics soon!

I like it. Looks better than my factory black dash.

The factory black is a weird slate color like in the new Audi A5's; not quite black but the darkest they made.

I really like how the chrome guage rings pop.

Two tone wheel while I'm sucking fumes! Could have been way easier to pull the wheel but didn't have the technology today!

Nice looking wheel. I've often thought about painting it black, cutting off the leather, and re-stitching in some nice supple dark leather.

thats where i screwed up i did not take that layer off if you try to spray the duplicolor with the layer on it runs off lol i guess its paint resistant once i scraped it off i painted it again but i began to run out i only bought 3 cans and I had already painted the engine cover with came out great....only to fail when it came to the dash so my black dash is is really textured to say the least.... dunce my gfs mom says it looks like chocolate at night in a way it cool but but in most ways it very much is not

again yours looks awesome maybe I will start over when i get the chance

Many many layers of light coats is the trick! Its hard to be patient. I had a bummer! Had to pull the chrome off the vents, doors, traction control and headlight switch. When I put all these back in it pushed the chrome out to far. Of course it pulled some paint off! have to wait for a nicer day to tape up the doors and respray. Speedo, Tack and gauges are still good though!

This makes the wood look awesome! Mostly put back together! Had to take off chrome around vents but still kept around gauges, speedo and tach. Still waiting for MF Switch and then off the speed shop for a diagnosis! Still running like crap after it warms up. Some say Converter lock up switch (may have that name wrong!) or Ignition Control Module.

hmmmm, the wood surround seems to not work with it...IMO...

but is there a carbon fiber kash kit? or at least radio surround?

Otherwise, dude, that''s awesome!
