I'm think about sprucing up the interior of my CRD by adding a wood-finish dash kit. Anybody have any recommendations on which brands I should consider? I see that most everything is 3M stick-on, but I want whatever I purchase to be as seamless as possible.

Thanks!

Crutchfield has electronics...

Here are the three main kits that I am looking at. All seem to be of good quality, so I am mainly concerned now with which parts of the interior would/would not look nice covered and with what color to chose.

AHhh... understand. I was totally off on that one...

I think those would look great. I have the limited edition so all my interior pieces are brushed aluminum...

Yea, I have a limited as well... I'm just not terribly impressed with the brushed aluminum look.

I'm thinking that the humungous pieces for the drivers side lower dash and the face of the dash compartment would look ridiculously gaudy. The only piece from the 3rd kit (the 29 pc. kit) that I would like is the parking brake cover, but it sure ain't worth $150!!!

So I guess I'm torn between the 24pc Woodview (carid.com) and the 22 pc. Sherwood. If anybody has any experience with these two products, or any thoughts on how they would look in a KJ, feel free to weigh in :SOMBRERO:

Kinda like it. I would only put it over the parts that are brushed now.

Thanks for the input. I think I'm going to install this one after the first of the year: http://www.carid.com/product.php?produc ... 071&page=1

The other two have pieces that, if installed, would look terrible, IMO... Incl: The whole knee brace on the drivers' side, the whole dash compartment, the bottom of the door trim, and the steering wheel controls.
