Default Dash Kit

Welp. I got it off ebay, got it home, took it out of the package and test fitted it.

What a pile. It looks like a**. There are WAY to many gaps. I wish they wouldve made one long center piece and one dash piece. Also, for brushed alluminimiuminimunim...whatever...its waaay too shiny.
Good news is that I bought from a company that will take it back with a restocking fee charge. At least Ill get most of my money back.

Anyone know of a kit that isnt laminated? Im looking for the real deal.

I have two brushed aluminum dash kits in my car. Both have a shiny surface, but are by no means pos kits. I am very satisfied with both the kits I got. I got one from Sherwood Dash Company (same as the APC kit), and the second from Wood View (which is 3d molded). Some people may not like the gloss surface if they are looking for a it that exactly simulates aluminum, but again neither kit is a pos kit.
This http://www.autotrucktoys.com/stores/...9561&CATID=411 is by far my favorite kit though. It basically replaces the panels by covering them.

Sorry saki =P I am just saying that the kit I got (which i think is the same as yours) was very satisfactory.

on our old intrepid we got a simulated carbon fiber dash kit from wooddash.com. Fit was real nice but was real shiney and was as realistic looking as I had hoped. Do not know what the aluminum ones look like, probably the same. If I had to do it over I probably would not have gotten it because it was expensive.

Realistic is the key word here. It looks way too shiney to be aluminum. The picture I was given looked like metal. This looks like a laminated vinal decal.

Thanks for the links. The most being JB's molded kit. I dont want too much and when I took the off some of the laminated kit pieces, I felt a little more comfortable with it. Too bad...

In the very least, Ill update and see if thiscompnay is true on its word so anyone else who DOES want that shiney look can be secure from buying from them
