You can easily find a nice dash kit off ebay. As for a wood/leather steering wheel, Im not sure if the newer LS's from 94-00 have a wheel that would fit yours, but the only other way would be to send it into the american stitches company. It would be 500 to redo your leather and add wood to it. I thought about it once but concluded it was too expensive.

Man, don't run around if you don't have prices on hand. You take it too seriously

Whatever I wanted for my car I still do, just need to see how much $ I have left after the car is done!

I had 4 engine pieces done for $150. This was the biggest piece they did. Its expensive but it came out nice. They will do anything thats plastic (As long as it smooth) or the dash wood pieces. I asked already they cant do metal.

Your right they just covered my original dust covers........ They have some dash pieces there on display, I liked the way the black wood looked. So I asked them to do my engine pieces. I was the 1st to ask them that they were surprised I wanted that done. But once they saw my engine detailed they understood why. I have the bigger dust cover for the fuse box & the small cover that goes over the positive on the battery at the shop will be ready monday. they said those 2 pieces would be about $140.

It may NOT be the real thing but all my co-workers thought it was...........

Im not sure how they did it but it looks like it was heated on and not just some carbon fiber sticky thing that I can buy at the auto store.

The plastic piece that goes over the instrument panel. They said they can come close to matching it to my wood grain that I have now for $125

.Im going to have them do a small piece (Dome Light) first to see how it comes out before I get the instrument panel. If this one comes out good im going to have several pieces inside the car done up.

I want my car to look like it came w/ more wood then it did..
