Default Installed Wood Dash Kit Today

Installed the kit today, Took about 4 hours to install but I did not install the glove box pieces. The Red Walnut Burl really looks nice with the Crimson Tintcoat exterior.

Overhead Console shot. Really does dress up the interior of the Bonneville.


So far this has been a busy but productive weekend. Our family van received a full detail job on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Total time was close to nine hours for the exterior. The interior was completed last weekend.

I may put another coat of Zaino on the Bonneville tomorrow morning. I was able to get a coat of Zaino Z2 on the Bonneville after finishing the family van on Saturday morning.

Close to four hours. I installed all the pieces except the glove box. You really have to take your time and think about what you are going to install and it helps to have a plan on the order in which the pieces are installed. I started with the rear seat cup holder because it has the smallest piece and it also has a larger piece that needs to be positioned correctly. Plus it is in the back seat and as the saying goes “out of sight out of mind".

But seriously if you are a perfectionist the kit may tempt your self control. Don't read me wrong it is easy to install but hard to place the pieces so they fit visually and physically. For me it was a mental challenge.

Looks like Onstar Homelink.

95SLE, yes that wood trim is absolutely awesome and fit'* so well with the crimson tintcoat. It almost looks like it was original. Well done.

very nice. It makes the bonnie look so much better. I wish it was a factory option (even if it was fake wood).

That looks GREAT! I have thought about doing the same thing, but a black carbon fiber look. (Silver car...I think that would be a nice match to my exterior)

Who'* kit did you use? Would you recommend it based on qaulity? Where did you pick it up from?
