Well, I just recently purchased a similar kit from www.edashkit.com. I know www.veneerz.com sells these dash kits too, but they were a little more expensive. I have navigation on mine, so I had to get one that'll fit. I'll post up pictures when I get them installed. They say it's pretty easy to install. Just clean the area and apply. That'll be my weekend project next week.

I ended up getting the Brushed Aluminum. Hopefully it'll look good. I have the stock carbon fiber that comes with the ex-v6, 6spd, but I wanted to give it a change. So we'll see how that goes....shrugs.

I have the Brushed Aluminum Kit installed in my ride. Bought it off of eBay for like $130 or so. Very easy to install and takes less than 15mins. The instructions and install kit come with it. Here is a pic of mine installed:


This is from 2 yrs ago and I still have had no problems with it. Just make sure when you do the install that the weather is really warm outside so it sticks to the dash very well. Good Luck !!

I bought it and installed it. It is not real aluminum but it looks really good, everybody who has seen it has complimented it. The sticker thay are talking about is actually a 3M adhesive, really strong stuff, industrial strong. We use it where I work at.

Looks good but it's coat is like soft plastic (gel/vinyl). It has a glossy shine. You need to prep up all the plastic with plastic promoter, which they do not give you enough. Yo can buy some at an aouto parts store. I strongly reccomend you go to auto zone or pep boys and buy the promoter. It is best if you use a cue tip to apply the promoter. If you wipe the promoter with a cotton swab or a cloth, it will eat some of the plastic which will make it look ugly. Remember if this were to happen, you are still going to cover the area. I reccomend apllying small amounts using the cue tip.
It looks good once it is installed properly. Its kind of is a small pain to install. Once it sticks, it is hard to remove. If you do install it, remember not to stick part of it and then force the rest of it in a different shear direction, or else it will crack in the future. Some kits have more parts than what is needed, and thos extra parts if installed would make your car look tacky. You be the judge of what parts ot put on.

It is a less expensive alternative to buying the Honda trim kit, and it has more trim parts.
I haven't had any problems, just one part on the steering wheel which did not stick good because of the contours, so I just added adhesive and fixed it.

^No problem man. You are gonna like it a lot. Just remember to take your time and align it properly and make sure you clean the surface well with the adhesive that they provide and you should have no problems.

Good luck and post the pics once done.

One thing to keep in mid is when the summer heat turns the interior into a tepid 200degrees oven, those peel n sticks have a tendency to lift up from the dash

I ordered my last Monday too and it came today.

Anyhow, the installation was way easier than I thought - all the parts fit very nicely.

1. Clean the surface with alcohol (come with the kit)
2. Apply Adhesion Promoter (come with the kit)
3. Peel off the plastic and apply

As "baldo" suggested above, use Q tip to apply the promoter.
