There are two types of aluminum dash kits. Brushed Aluminum (most common) and Real Brushed Aluminum. I would wait for the Real (it's actual metal) because you won't be happy with the other (probably why it's on ebay). I have some pieces of the Real Brushed installed. Some pieces were VERY hard to bend correctly however. I strongly suggest setting the pieces in place before hand and making sure they loose fit perfectly on all edges with more bending to make them fit. I didn't install all the pieces because it was too much. But I did mess up the shifter piece and want to redo that one (probably will place with epoxy).

I'll be posting some pics of my Trep soon (about time) with some of the other stuff I've done so far. Probably after this weekend.

I was thinking about a brushed aluminum dash. Haven't made up my mind yet, but it will look good with the chrome shifter...

Where did you get the "real" one?

Thanks for the links everyone. I'm still debating between brushed aluminum and red carbon fiber.

Here is another dash kit web site:

Just out of curiousity, how easily do these come out once applied. Say if for some reason down the road, I decided I don't like it anymore and want to take it out. Is this possible?

Thanks

*Bump*

Also, SlvrBlt, do you have any pictures of your dash? I'd really like to see one before I decide. Thanks

They don't come out! I talked to Ron at Dr. Vinyl before I bought mine, which I really like, and he said that when there are in place and you try to take them out he has seen hunks of the dash literally tear away with it. So be sure you want it!

I need the one for 98-99 except for the shifer area (because I changed mine to the 99 1/2-2002)!!! I wonder if they will be able to substitute that piece?
