There's metal trim but that would look really odd with a tan trim. Wood is really the only thing that works with tan. Adds that luxury feel :up: .

I love my grey (quartz) and wood interior :) .

yeah bro, im in the same position as you. im tryin to track down a full black leather interior for a swap, but its gonna be too much $$. just concentrate on the outside like i am. too much wood is gonna make the car look ****ty. i just have it on the center console and the door armrests, and thats more than enuff

die

have you checked out the die for dashes and the rest of the interior? sounds like a mess, not to say I am uninterested..?

what i did to get rid of the wood is ordered from a Honda Parts Website ( go to Google and search for "Majestic Honda" ) and just order the LX V6 interior parts. Instead of wood on the doors, its tan. and the center is just straight black. so it looks good like that IMO. OEM = :D

The sedans have a matching steering wheel whereas all coupes have a black steering wheel. It looks like he has the TL Type-S steering wheel, too.

loxlloxl-I like the gunmetal. It looks OEM:up2: Did you remove the trim around the HVAC controls before you painted it? Or did you buy the trim piece and then painted it before you put it on? I'm planning on painting the same wood trim piece on my car but I'm not sure how I'm going to remove it and then reinstall it.

TH23 is right about the sedans having a matching steering wheel. I have absolutey NO clue why Honda didn't do the same for the coupes. All I did was remove the center trim, gauge panel trim, and the entire piece where the shifter and cup holders are and painted all those pieces.

cool, i guess ill be looking for a sedan sterring wheel.
i like my tan leather, it doesnt get as hot as the black or dark colored leathers do, as for the wood, is cool, i think thry used just the right amount, ie. no long ass strip across the width of the dash.
the only thing that would make it complete, is wood vent trim for the side vents :D and if i could figure out to get a wood gauge bezel to match the wood trim, or contrast it with aluminium or cf, what do yall think? anyone found these wood vents yet?
also since my car has the cruise and stero controls on the steering if i changer to say... a TL-S steering will i be able to just screw these back on

thats the second time i saw someone ask that in the last few days. he has an LX, so they dont have the auto climate control, they have regular A/C controls.

That looks like the trim on the '02 (and '01?) coupes. I have an '02 with the tan (ivory) interior also. Instead of wood trim, dark gray metallic accents are used around the audio/ac panel and window controls. The black interior has silver-colored accents instead of the wood. There is matching trim around the tranny shift lever while the rest of the console is flat black on both interior shades. I kinda wanted the wood at first but now I prefer it without. As for the black steering wheel: I believe Honda uses them to convey what they believe is a sportier look for the sportier coupe. I acually like it. It matches the black of the console. And I believe the coupe's steering wheel may be a bit smaller in diameter (or has a thicker rim), adding to it's sportier look and feel.

hey loxllxol did you remove all your dash parts before you painted them? or did you tape up your car like you would your house when you paint?
