Hello All......Just wondering if anybody on the forum has tackled switching their interior trim pieces to the wood or aluminum. If so what was the difficulty and what tools are required. My wife bought the olive wood set for me LAST Christmas and it is still sitting in the box. Any help would be appreciated. - CO

Just go for it - the trim kits are very impressive, easy to install and do change the interior a lot. Use the hair dryer as recommended, and take your time. You can lay out the pieces before hand and choose the ones that you like, and not use the ones that you don't. Make sure you use a degreaser (simple green, dash cleanser, etc.) to clean the dash from any grease, wax, protectant, etc. This is important. We used Total Prep.

I don't know whether olive can be matched with OEM parts.

The kit is just an applique - glue it on top of your parts without removing them. The only part that is hard to remove is the passenger dashboard (line) trim. This is screwed in from the rear. Rich (in Almaden) has a unique way of removing this.
