Wood dash?

Sooooo I want a wood dash to match the steering wheel I just put in. My 2 options are to buy the adhesive kits and pray that the wood matches (I've seen some really close looking swatches).
OR to buy the OEM pieces and once again pray the wood matches.

If I go with the kit I'm looking at Dark Burl/Mahogany. In this case all the pieces will obviously match, the wheel is the only concern.


I'd be piecing together the OEM parts (unless someone knows where I can get it all together). In THIS case I'm scared that the individual parts may not match, and I'll have Frankendash™.
The parts:
Power window switch (Will this fit my 01?)
Audio Panel (From HandA)
Center cup holder. (Will this fit a coupe?)

In before TLDR, basically I want wood (hehe wood). If you have any info on those parts above I will be eternally grateful!

all those parts will match

in my opinion the woodgrain is nasty and tacky looking.

It doesn't flow well with our dark interiors .. maybe if you have a tan one

I ended up swapping all my 1999 honda accord wood grain pieces for all black + silver pieces

looks much better

I indeed have a tan one, with the gold exterior. Personally I like the wood look, until it starts getting crazy and people put it on EVERYTHING.

I'm gonna go fairly stock with it and just do those parts I listed above.

you should PM Hairballs58

me and him traded interior parts

he should have my woodgrain parts (center console, cup holder, door inserts)

they were in pretty good condition, and will probably get the parts cheaper that way

Eh yo, I have wood trim in my '99 ex-v6 sedan and I hate it. It totally clashes with the interior. It's only on the centre console and doors. Did they make any sedans without it?

I'd love to swap for some black trim.

speaking of wood trim, have you guys seen the interior of the bugatti galibier concept? OMG...its not physically possible for a car interior to be more tastefully luxurious.

Ohhh...it's in this "execution" thing? Are you sure? Well thanks for clearing that up!

I was going to suggest the stick-ons kits for the OP but was simply too confused about why the pics on ebay don't look like what you posted. Now I understand!
