The question is what color? Don't know If I'll get wood on this dark gray dash, maybe brushed aluminum? Carbon Fiber? Paint it Silver=free?

There are some pics mixed in with our last meet. Whisky98 has a 2000 SSEi with a red dash kit. It looked really nice in his car.

Oh, I see some things I like there. not to sure about the red dash kit but I like the headrest and the Pontiac logo on the front lower grill. Hopefully he reads this soon and tells me how he did these. Looks like the same dash kit, he chose red.Wish there was a better pic of the dash.

I like the head rest thing a lot. I need it!!!

I agree. That would look great for your interior color.

I put a wood grain dash kit in my car. I am very happy with it. I have the taupe (tan) interior with the tan dash. I got spoiled by real wood in my Touring Sedan. The SSEi was just begging for something to take your eyes off all the plastic.

I actually did this several months ago, but never got around to posting any pics. After a few weeks it seemed like old new, so I just forgot about it. I will try to get some pics together tonight.

Well...that didn't take all that long. Here are some pics:







As you can see, the tan interior would not look good with brushed aluminum or carbon fiber IMO. Wood just screams luxury!
