OK i have come to the realization that after seeing some pix of a few fusions, zephers and so on that the dash and trim in my car is to plain i need something else. I am going to order a trim kit but need help with which color/style i should get. My car is black and it has the light tan and black interior. what do you think would look good. the first pix is of a wood trim but do not think that would look good in my car so i was thinking that kit but in one of the sytles of the second pix. let me know what you think.




One of the choices is carbon fiber but i think it may be to ricey?

I'm not sure if I like that covering the stereo. As far as the color choice..... I think the silver carbon fiber would look great with your interior.

:D your car is one of the pix i saw and decided to get a dash kit. Found your car domain page and liked what you had done. I just showed the styles to my 9 year old son and she said i should go with the silver carbon fiber. he is a gear head already :lol:

I have a charcoal cherry Sherwood dash kit installed. I spent about $265 shipped on it and it looks "ok". I bought it from AutoAnything.com and it had raving customer reviews on the quality and fit of Sherwood dash kits.

I cleaned my dash multiple times with rubbing alcohol and installed everything according to the directions, but found fitment issues on some pieces, mainly the passenger dash strip. I've had to use 3M spray adhesive multiple times before it would stick properly without peeling. Right now it's starting to bubble in the middle so I'm going to try some different adhesive. I did not install the direct radio cover because it just looks too fake. But when I applied the center dash trim I noticed that the piece seems about 1mm short all around; just enough to show the CF through and bug the crap out of me.

Anyway, while the kit looks good to everyone that has seen it; I see all the imperfections in it and it drives me crazy. I think that when you install it, you see exactly where things do line up. If you do purchase one, make sure you follow the directions and be prepared to spend a few hours doing the job. This is something you definitely don't want to rush.

Thanks for the tips. I plan on doing this but will more than likely be when it warms up as i am sure the kit will not stick that well when it is cold.
