I received my wood replacement dash from OEMplus this morning - thanks Rich. I was able to swap out the three pieces in about an hour - most of that time was dedicated to removing and installing the glove box to reach the screw behind the passenger side piece. It's strange but the pieces are totally different - not just the finish. The right side black dot part used plastic snaps while the new one used metal clips. The entire mold seems to be different.



Elusive screw:

Very, very nice. I agree, my Individual dunkel chrome trim was the same way. The Blackpoint's construction was far more flimsy.

Very nice, looks very sharp! That's the combination I want to do to my car. ****ar across the dash and aluminum on the center stack. If only Aluminum is available for Climatic.

Same pain here!!!
I would want a nut tree top plus aluminum center though, because I think it'll fit my gray interior better.
