Sherwood "Brushed Aluminum" dash kit (30 piece)

[5/14/2003] Reviewed by: Jimmy -

Applicable to: '99 +

Very flexible, almost rubbery dash trim kit in your choice of various simulated woods, carbon fibre, or aluminum. 3M double-sided tape and adhesive promoter (included) do the sticking duties. There were enough pieces to practically cover everything inside the car, but I used only a few for a more tasteful effect.

The instructions suggested cleaning the interior surfaces with 3M Preps-Sol. Couldn't find it anywhere! Went with rubbing alcohol instead - seemed to work just fine. Also, the adhesive promoter (which comes soaked into a tiny sponge) is difficult to apply and lasts long enough to apply about 3 pieces. After that, better either find some more or just go without (the double-sided tape is already extremely sticky) like I did. We'll see how long the non-promoted pieces hold out.

I was hoping for a realistic looking aluminum finish but got a big surprise instead. It looks more like silver, glossy plactic than aluminum. Not being what I expected, I wasn't sure if I would actually install it or not. After much dry fitting, standing back and looking, I decided to just go for it. And it actually looks pretty nice! I've already gotten many compliments on it.

Difficult to remove without leaving damage
