Hey,

Does anybody know where I can get a solid black piece to replace the wood like panel all the way across the dash. I don't like the wood color...My interior is going to be all black and blue.

any suggestions?

AltimaVixen, that looks phat! I was considering purchasing a brushed alluminum dash kit for my car, but I wasn't sure if it would look good w/ tan interior or not. I just have a couple questions for ya. 1st, what type of paint and clear coat did you use? Also, what type of sandpaper/grit did you use to sand the plastic down? How many coats of paint/clear coat did you use? Have you had any problems with the paint wearing/rubbing off? Just curious.

If you do have a 1st gen then 1st gen XEs had the black piece. Looks pretty sharp.

Here's a high quality picture.

do you think you can notice a big difference whether you painted it or bought it?

Kind of. Mine is really deep and glossy, you'd have to get a good paint job to get it to look like a stock black one. I think some SE's also came with the black dash piece, if you guys check out some junkyards you can probably find some.
