    Ask Smokin' SRX. He has some aftermarket wood trim in his SRX.

    Also, check here: http://www.carid.com/2010-cadillac-s...ain-dash-kits/

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    Yes, Steve is correct on both counts!

    I have it/love it and got the $135 kit plus a $65 rear add-on from CarId.com. Went "OEM match" and it is 95% perfect match (all wood has natural variations) See my Album for some pix.

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    Make sure it matches,, I just installed it and I think they sent the wrong color,, we did it in the garage and it looked good,, backed the car out the next day and it is an orange color compared to the oem wood,, it looks bad. I called and they said too bad since I installed it,, I am so mad, I am working with a supervisor now, I sent her picks, and she is going to see if we can switch out the dash around the radio and the shifter, that is where it is most noticeable when it is right next to each other. I will have to pay for the re do thought, not sure how much..

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    i am considering this mod as well but my question is what exactly do you do for install (i.e. 3m tape, clip on, etc)

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    Simple, 3M, self-adhesive backing. Sticks well to a clean dash. Alcohol usually included. Take Brendjm advice and match color before adhering! Mine is good, w/a 95%, very acceptable match. All wood has some minor variations, even from OEM installed trim. CarId.com was my source.........

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    I wish I know how to attach a pic here. I finally got it worked out,, they are sending me out some new pieces that I hope match better.. I sent them pics and they too could see right away the diffence. I am hoping it is not too hard to get the pieces taht are on there now off. It was not hard to install, and really sticks like crazy so make sure it is lined up perfect before letting it touch.

    Re: aftermarket wood dash

    Don't know your location but wait for a HOT, sunny, afternoon. Park car in the sun. After a few hours the wood appliqué will slowly pull off. Try at a 90* angle and a 45* angle. Should work. I had a piece loosen on the bend, on such a day.

    Glad they're making it right!

    To upload a pix, log in, click on your user NAME, on any post you added/wrote to. Box opens. click Profile then click Albums . I think it says More or Add after that. Almost intuitive.

    You must have uploaded the desired pix from your camera to your computer, already, of course. They then get downloaded to the Forum, as stated above. That's the gist. Perhaps someone knows a shorter method...................

    Good luck with that wood!

    When you make a reply to a post select the "advanced" tab and there you will see an "Attachment" feature where you can be able to upload your image(s).

    Also you can use and upload photos to anyone of many free photo hosting websites i.e. photobucket.com

    BTW: Which is a great site that I use a lot.
