Default 02 Woodie Cruiser

Yahoo! The Di-noc wood grain overlay for the Woodies deck lid came today from moparpartsource.com. Ten days from on line order to my doorstep by Fedex.
As with many woodies the deck overlay was sunburned almost completely away and looks terrible as about 70% of the wood grain was gone and the tan base layer under it is exposed and fading fast. The perimeter beams are in surprisingly good condition over the whole car and the overlays are pretty good too with just a bit of uniform fading a a few chips here and there.
The new piece is die cut for for the lock cylinder, the deck handle cup and ornament screws and looks like it would overlap the the beams by at least a half inch so it should be easy to butt it together and trim. I think I'll have to remove the deck and put it on the bench to do the job though.
Of course the new panel will shame the rest of the original ones but I will not be swayed as the back piece will only seen by itself. Once we repaint the grey bumpers it should be really nice.
I think we'll be adding a spoiler too. Auto Zone can supply spray cans of color by code for us. Still have to get the transmission "read" and out of limp mode. Darn thing worked perfectly when we got the car. Then we stopped driving it, replaced the battery, changed the trans fluid and filter, when I restarted it the trans was in second. Bummer.
