In the video above we get a close-up, first-hand look at not only how to install a wood grain dash kit but what we can expect in terms of the look and feel of the material. As you notice from this DL Auto style woodgrain dash kit, the domed polyurethane finish gives it a high-gloss and it is much thicker than Rdash kits. The thickness here is a mixed blessing because although it definitely makes installation easier some people don’t like the fact that it doesn’t sit flush on the dash. In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but those are the facts.
Despite the fact that the video in today’s post shows woodgrain, poly kits from companies like DL Auto, B&I, Sherwood and others are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes so whether you want carbon fiber, aluminum, chrome or even slid red, white or bue you can have it. Thee only real downside in terms of colors ids that the doming process that makes these kis so much thicker also makes getting a matte or fat finish impossible. So, until technology changes yo’ll still have to rely on an Rdash dash kit or Plastidip for that now popular matte look.
