Whisky got his stuff at www.ultimatewarriorracing.com His rear seat armrest has a cover on it... It'* a GIANT embroidered pontiac logo, and IMHO it'* a very classy touch to the car. The coolest stuff i've ever seen.

Very cool indeed. Don't think I'll get the rear arm rest cover cause I have to leave that open for my stereo, but I'm all over ther headrest covers and am considering the bottom Pontiac piece. From the pics whisky 98 dosen't leave that on the car the whole time right? Looks to low for daily driving, but looks great in photos. Might get it any ways for the few carshows I'll be entering next year.

Jstpsntym-Thanks for all your help on the dash kit stuff. I wrote the guy off ebay and he was really nice. Do you know what brand of kit they sent you, was it Gemico? Are you happy with the fit of the kit? The guy off ebay want'* $159 + SH and the company itself wants $275, kinda weird.

There'* a lot of different dash kits out there and they all have different # of pieces. This Gemico kit has the most for an 01 with wooddashfacotry ranked 2nd. Both company sent my samples of Synthic Brushed Aluminm, Brushed Sterling and Driftwood. Can't wait till they all come in.

Figure for the headrest I'll get the silver PONTIAC instead, it will go with the dash kit. Also going to order some lloyd floor mats with the SUPERCHARGED logo on them, was thinking red but might as well get the Silver theme going on inside.



I see that it'* White embrodery, but that should be ok, still pull off the lighter color dash theme.

I don't remember the brand name. You are going through what I did...trying to find the right number of pieces. What I like about the kit I got, is that it included all the door handle and door lock bezels, including those for the rear doors.

Yes, I am very happy with the fit. Of course, your results are directly related to the effort you put into this. Mine took about three hours. You spend alot of time doing cleaning and prep work.

You want to clean the mounting surface really well, like three times. You then need to cover the area with the activator which comes in a pen like a magic marker. This is where you have to be extra careful. You only want to apply the activator where the overlay will go. If you go outside the area, it leaves a film on the plastic area where you applied it. You might want to dry fit the piece and trace it lightly with a pencil.

Next is applying the overlays. This is where you have to extra-extra careful. Once the overlay touches the area where the activator has been applied...it is stuck. There is no peeling it off to try again. The smaller pieces are pretty easy, but the bigger ones are a PITA. I suggest you start with the easy ones first to get the hang of it. When you get to the larger pieces, like the trim around the radio, it helps to dry fit it first and plan how many steps it will take to put it on. Take a razor blade and score the film on the back at those spots. This allows you to peel off a bit at a time to fit the piece around corners and curvy surfaces without worrying about it sticking to something you don't want.

Darn, you don't remember the kit maker. I'm looking for the same thing, how many pieces, I want all door handle pieces as well and I noticed that not all the kits do the entire gear shifter center cousole.

I'm waiting for my samples, either brushed chrome or now I'm thinking driftwood. A Synth, wood grain pattern made of darkgray wood, like in an Acura, I'll dig up a pic here.


This could look real classy, more so than chrome maybe.

Yeah I know about putting in a dash kit, #1 rule, test fit ever piece and take your time. Took me 3 hours for my Aurora one too, but the results are SO NICE!!!
Wish my samples were here NOW. Is the mail here yet?
Oh mail women.

I don't have much and the main dash piece is actually original from my 1992 SE while the rest is aftermarket add on so that'* why they don't match. I would have gotten the main dash piece to match, but someone else beat me to that (got the console and upper dash pieces from a SSE in a salvage yard). I still have to go back and get the pieces that go around the switches and handles on the doors.
