Does anyone have any experience with purchasing and installing wood dash kits for a 04 CTS?
I would like to know of a good quality brand and are they hard to install.
Thanks

greffed- I'm going to attempt to move this thread over to the CTS lounge. I believe a couple fellas have experience with the wood trim dash for their 03 CTSs.

What don't you like about the way it looks?

I was thinking of installing only a few pieces instead of using all of the pieces in the kit. I think to much wood would cheapen the look of the interior.

The install: once you were done how did the edges look. Are they loose with gapes or do they lay down nice and neat?

Here's one company that I found here locally, and they will do the install for $90. Depending on what kit you get they seem to be reasonably priced. I just don't know about the quality and how they will last over time.

Thanks for the reply's.

The prep for installation is the most important step of the process.
Installation can be done by just about anyone and screwed up by the same person. Painting dash parts is probably not the best choice.

Hard dash and interior parts can be finished in wood grain , aluminum, etc. The process is being used by some of the OEMs and gives a truly factory appearance. You can e-mail me if you want more info,
