I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as to getting my dash surrounding redone as i have a EF Fairmont ghia with the woodgrain on the door trims. Now what i want to do is make the whole dash surrounding ( inc. around the radio and gear selector and the rest of that stuff) the same as the woodgrain on the door trims. Can anyone help me with who i should see or what i should do? does it need to be airbrushed?

Im fairly sure there is a kit you can buy to do the ashtray and stereo surrounding etc, not sure about getting the whole dash shroud done though. Maybe call a trimmer and see what they recommend.

Try doing a search on here and see what you can come up with..

i dont have the address infront of me, but i know they advitise in "autosalon" mag. a place called "dashboard center" or somthing similer, they do coverings, they look really good and can replicate anything.

they can even do carbon coverings for alloy wheels, that look pritty cool.

hope it helps.

Hi I hope this will help you. A company called Modicoat Pty Ltd http://www.modicoat.com.au should be able to help you with that. They are in Queensland, but they deal with the whole country. Have a look at their website. The work they do is absolutely magnificent. :D
