Default woodtrim to NONwoodtrim

I own a LGt with woodtrim...ew? or at least i think so on a NON luxury car.

I was wondering if anyone wants to trade my woodtrim from 02LGT to a non-woodtrim...OR know the best product or ideas to make mine NON-woodtrim. Thanks!

keep an eye on the junk yards. The painting is not that bad and if you go with a flat black it will be hard to mess it up and will look stock.

Keep looking for a trade, you'll find someone that'll do it.

maybe post with that in the title of your thread? and try other sites like sl-i.net or legacygt.com and subaruoutback.org.

I painted mine No biggie, really. Just take your time.

Though I'm a ricer and made mine a very non-stock color (white!).

yea, Aken is rice I will be painting mine black, unless I get lucky like Hiroki and find someone to swap.

It really isnt hard to paint, and what is the worst that could happen? It doesnt look like you want, you just repaint it.

The Baja parts look like they might fit, but you don't get the hole for the funky cupholder.

Just watch out you dont buy the whole set for $1 + shipping. I bought one and it ended up being plastic with 3m double sided tape that didnt even fit. I didnt return it because shipping would cost more than $1 =\

I actually sanded mine down to smooth bare plastic to match the trim around the guages. I woulnd't recommend this, as it seems they used slightly different types (read: colour, especially when polarized) of plastics for some of the different pieces. Still looks better than that sparkly trim, in my opinion.

Plan on many many hours of wetsanding if you go this route.

I just did this today, did the three main dash pieces, will have to find time to do the door sections.

I sanded the pieces with 400 grit to scuff it up, then used Krylon super flat camoflauge paint in black. Worked great, and looks awesome. I recommend doing it in an area with no wind though as one piece got a little debris in it.

Overall it was super easy and I think it looks great

Okay, just painted my woodtrim today. Pictures soon to come as well as a "how to."

My thoughts??

Holy crap. I can't begin to tell you how much better it looks than that plastic woodgrain CRAP. I used Plasti-Kote camoflage flat black, and it matches PERFECTLY with the OEM black dash pieces. IT LOOKS 1000 TIMES BETTER.

I also installed my M4D TYT3 JDM Legacy S401 hazard button, but it's not lining up the same, because the USMD and JDM buttons are shaped slightly different. Should be an easy fix, though. More on that later.
