Wood Dash Kits Available

Sat Nov 05, 2011 10:21 pm

Imitation wood dash kits are available from CarID for $187. http://www.carid.com/2012-nissan-leaf-wood-grain-dash-kits/item-312871.htmlImage

Has anyone installed them? Do you have pictures?

Anyone know of an alternate source?

They have real carbon fiber. Very interested in this. Can someone be the guinea pig?

Real Platinum Burl Full Dash kit on on order :D

Update -- Shipping 11/17 they say. This kit will take some patients to install, it doesn't look easy.

I ordered their sample kit - 4 samples for $5 to see what they look like inside the vehicle.

This is just my opinion, but I can't really picture any of these kits on a LEAF dash. To me, the shapes and textures of the basic dash don't really lend themselves to blending well with these appliques. It doesn't help that there are no pictures on the site of an actual LEAF with one of the kits applied. I'm very curious to see the pictures when someone actually does this.

Agreed - woody trim, no. However the carbon fiber trim might be pretty hot looking. I'd love to see it in a real Leaf.

There are some exterior trim kits for various vehicles that feature carbon fiber too - it could look nice both inside and out if done and fitted well.

I ordered 2 sample kits at $5 each including shipping. Each kit has 4 samples of your choice. I have been driving around with the 1st kit in the car to see the effects of different lighting and think I have a winner (that my wife also agrees on). I ordered the second kit just to confirm that the one I am choosing is right for us. I am doing this for sure and will post pictures when it is done. I am going for wood tones to soften the interior look and also to cover the shiny black which is already showing the inevitable micro scratches.

It is hard to find the sample kits on their site so here is the link: http://www.carid.com/wood-grain-dash-sa ... 36438.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I should have it later today (Seattle, WA, United States 11/22/2011 12:12 A.M. Arrival Scan)

Signature required so I'll be working from home, not much working once it arrives I'm sure! :D
